Recipe For Quiche

I have been making the same quiche recipe for the past 20 years. I don’t usually use a base for my quiches as I really cannot see the point in doing so. When ever I am asked to bring a dish with to a tea party I always offer to do something savoury and a quiche is what I make. For my quiche recipe you can use any left over vegetables, or anything that needs using up. I love using spinach but you can use kale or Swiss chard instead. I think that sun dried tomatoes add a great depth of flavour and hand-in-hand with that goes feta. For this quiche I used mushrooms as the base ingredient. Recently, I was taking photographs of each stage of pastry making and I ended up with my pastry shell on the floor! Waste not, want not, is a good phrase to utter in these circumstances (not “oh bugger” as I did), and I rescued the base of the pastry. The dogs managed to help rescue the rest! I used the base to make a quiche – it tasted absolutely wonderful and for going out I will definitely make a base again. But, for just Dave and I, I won’t really bother. This quiche made a great breakfast for us when Dave last went racing.

Do you have a dish you always take with when you are asked to bake something?

  3. I must be honest I don’t often take freshly cooked dishes, I’m a keen shopper! But quiche is one of my all time favourites. I really like a butternut and feta, but I’d not turn down any other offered

  7. Sounds and looks divine!! I also don’t usually make a base with my quiche – saves time. Sundried tomatoes have to be one of the best food inventions ever. 🙂

  9. Good to read that you could recover it! I usually bring sweets. I’m not sure why-mainly because I love making them I think! 🙂

  11. Wow the vivid flavours in that quiche are making my mouth water. Chocolate and apricot tart is my most requested baking item to take to places.
