Quiche
Filed under: - Vegetables, - A normal day, - Cheese, - Egg
Posted by: Hild @ 6:54 pm

Most evenings when we realise that it is dinner time we just make sandwiches, something we’ve been told is very boring.  This is true, so last week we were inspired to explore the fridge and see what needed eating and whether they added up to a meal.  We ended up with a quiche - a standard way of eating left-overs!

 

Pastry:

Preheat oven to 180 Celsius. Mix all ingredients and knead the dough enough for it to be rolled out (not any longer). Roll the pastry thin enough to line the quiche dish (ours was 19cm in diametre). Bake it in the oven for 20 minutes

 

Filling (approximate as it was whatever we had left in the fridge!):

Cook the spinach in the butter. Add the remaining ingredients and cook for a while longer.  Add the filling to the baked pastry.  Bake quiche for another 10 minutes.

 

Topping:

Peel and slice the apple into thin slithers. Cover the quiche in apples and grated cheese. Bake quiche for another 10 minutes or until the cheese is light brown.

    As a quick note, as well as salt and pepper, I grated about half a nutmeg into the mixture of eggs, cheese and sour cream before adding to the spinach. Nutmeg goes quite well with egg dishes, but it might have been a bit much…..
