RECIPE: Easy Quiche

RECIPE: Easy Quiche

RECIPE: Easy Quiche

Quiche Lorraine is an easy favourite in our house.  I love baking two so we have leftovers for lunch through the week.

This is a recipe I’ve been using for years and have no idea where it has come from but it’s a hit in our house and hopefully it will be in yours too.

 

Ingredients:

  • Shortcrust Pastry 2 sheets
  • 3 eggs, lightly whisked
  • 60g shredded gruyere cheese, I have used a variety of cheese with equal success
  • 200g diced ham
  • 200ml Cream
  • 200ml Milk
  • Nutmeg

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 200C.  Grease a quiche baking dish and set aside.
  2. Place the 2 sheets of pastry on top of each other and roll out to a size to fit your pan.
  3. Cover the pastry with baking paper and pie weights and bake blind for 10 minutes.  Set aside to cool slightly.
  4. Remove the paper and weights and place cheese and ham on the pastry.
  5. In a bowl whisk together the eggs, cream and milk and pour into the dish.
  6. Sprinkle with nutmeg and bake for 30-45 minutes until brown and cooked through.

I have used this as a base for other flavours.  My nan loved red salmon instead of the ham.  I have also fried some bacon onions and mushrooms for a filling and spinach and ham go well together.  Let your tastebuds and family members help you with your fillings so they enjoy it too.

Happy Baking!

Bag a Winner in Literacy and Numeracy Week

The costumes and excitement for Book Week are over for another year but did it’s time to bag a winner.

I love reading through nominations and winners for these awards as the books make great gifts for the rest of the year.  I plan on bagging a winner and wrapping them up for Christmas gifts for the kids, so they’ve got some summer reading and a new library bag for the new year.  If you want to protect treasured books and a library book, then our Lawson Waterproof library bag is just the thing.  It’s perfect for the school bag and by the pool for making sure those pages stay in readable condition.
