My Quiche Recipe
Several friends have asked for my recipe for making a simple quiche. There are many out there, but that is usually not what people want: they actually want to see "your" recipe ;)
So here it is!
Things you'll need:
* Freshly made, or ready made dough
* 7 to 9 eggs (depending on size)
* Crème fraiche
* Dash of milk (optional)
* Cooking bacon
* Mushrooms (optional)
* Cheese to grate (e.g. cheddar or emmental)
* Pepper (optional)
In this instance, I used short crust dough, but you can also use puffy dough!
You can use either the pre-rolled, or the one you need to spread out yourself, or you can also make it from scratch (which I am too lazy to do ;)!
If needed, spread it out to fit your pie dish...
Place the dough in a pie dish that can go in the oven. Remember to "fork" the dough, especially if using a puff dough!
Cut the bacon and the mushrooms, and cook them in a pan.
Drain the water and fat. Save for later use...
Mix the eggs, crème fraiche, and some (rather more than less) of the grated cheese in a big bowl.
Once well mixed, pour onto the dough in the pie dish.
Add in the cooked bacon and mushrooms, spread evenly...
Pour mix on dough
Spread the ingredients evenly
Cook the quiche at ~200ºC, or gas mark 7, for hmmm, well, until it looks good!
(Variable depending on the oven... Usually it takes 45 to 55 minutes for mine.)
