How to French Quiche

by Vincent Dubois

Home made quiche made easy. A slightly decadent, absolutely-no-low-fat pleasure.

Supplies

  • 4 Eggs
  • 300 Milliliters Milk
  • 60 Milliliters Whipping cream
  • 150 Grams Grated cheese
  • Salt, black pepper, nutmeg
  • Frozen puff pastry
  • Chopped bacon (optional)
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    Ingredients are for a 24cm tray, but first measure your tray's volume buy pouring water from it into your mixing bowl. Go ahead and preheat your oven now (220C).

    Step 2

    You can make your own pastry, but I find these little frozen squares of puff pastry very convenient. Make them stick together with a little water on the edge.

    Step 3

    Make sure they are sealed tight.

    Step 4

    Dress the tray with the pastry.

    Step 5

    In your mixing bowl, mix the eggs, the cream, and the milk.

    Step 6

    Add the chopped bacon, season (salt, pepper, nutmeg) and whisk together with a fork. Check the volume of the apparel, add milk if needed.

    Step 7

    Put the cheese on the pastry, pour on the apparel, and add a little extra cheese on top for a nice browned finish.

    Step 8

    Bake about 45 minutes at 220C.

    Step 9

    Voila! Serve hot or cold, with a green salad on the side.
