I love Quiche.
Honestly, what’s not to like?
Eggs, cheese, pastry, and practically anything else you want!
Infinitely adaptable, wonderfully wholesome, and so easy to make.
I made a minced chicken and corn quiche. It was delicious.
Please make one. And put whatever you want in it.
Mushrooms, bacon, broccoli, onions, sausage bits, tuna, peas.
(Just not all together!)
I promise you can’t go wrong.
Chicken and corn quiche
Prep time: 20 mins
Cook time: 50 mins
Eat this with: A tomato salad
butter, to grease
1 sheet puff pastry
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 onion, finely chopped
200 g chicken, minced
100 g baby corn, chopped
6 large eggs
100 g cheese, grated
200 ml cream
salt and pepper, to taste
1. Preheat the oven to 200º C. Grease a 9-inch pie dish with a removable base, with butter. Place the sheet of puff pastry on it and press down onto the base and sides, spreading it evenly. Pop into the freezer to chill.
2. Heat the oil in a non-stick pan. Add the onions and sweat gently. Once they turn pink, add the minced chicken and gently fry over medium heat for a few minutes. Next, add the corn, season with salt, and stir well. Cook for a few more minutes. Remove and keep aside to cool.
3. In another bowl, crack the eggs in followed by the cheese and cream. Mix well and season. Add the cooled chicken-corn mixture and mix everything together.
4. Remove the pie dish from the freezer and pour the mixture in. Bake in the preheated oven for about 50 minutes, until the sides are a lovely golden brown, and the top is set. Remove from the dish, slice, and eat warm.
In other news, I’m going home in a few days. This means several things.
1. I will be pampered silly.
2. I will eat like a crazy person.
3. I will spend lazy afternoons with my family.
4. I will meet childhood friends and we will laugh like monkeys.
But there is one other thing.
5. I will have access to a real kitchen. With equipment and space and a full pantry.
I will have people to help me and I wont have to clean up or do the dishes.
(These are all problems I have to deal with- staying alone, and cooking in a tiny kitchen!)
In other words, I can cook something insane and not sweat the small stuff!
So, in typical culinarystorm style, I thought I’d put this up to a vote.
I’ve picked five classic recipes I’ve always wanted to try, and you guys need to help me decide!
The one with the top vote is the one I will cook and post about
Have a fun week ahead!
