At the risk of sounding monotonous, here is another quiche recipe. I use different fillings depending on what is available but the principle remains the same.
1 quantity of shortcrust pastry. The recipe is here. I use a 25cm (10 inch) quiche dish and this is more pastry than I need. You can freeze the excess or use it and make something else while the oven is turned on for the quiche.
Cream/milk/milk powder/evaporated milk
1/2 cup grated cheese
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 rashers shortcut bacon, diced
1 onion, finely chopped
Free choice – could be asparagus, mushrooms, corn kernels, spinach, tomato slices
Lightly fry the bacon and onion. Spread mixture over the base of the quiche. Add whatever other filling ingredients you choose and top with the grated cheese. Beat the eggs with milk and or cream. I usually use milk powder and water mixed in equal proportions to make a slightly richer mixture. Add the cayenne pepper. Pour over the filling until it is within about 1cm of the top of the pastry shell. Bake in 180 degree oven for about 40 minutes.
I did not get an opportunity to photograph the finished product before dinner last night so here is what is left. I have cut it into portions to freeze. We will then have it in our lunches next week.
I love recipes like this that allow for a degree of flexibility depending on the available ingredients. It is a great way to use up a few sad vegies from the crisper.
