I have taken over sahm duties having finished a ridiculous full time job, and need to convert dh to eating the food I like. We have just argued over the best way to use up left over veg - soup or quiche. I'm going with quiche. Dh says it is veggie muck and will never be as good as shop bought quiche!
So, I have ready made shortcrust pastry (I can make pastry but life is too short) Bacon (can only go in half the quiche as I'm veggie) Leeks Mushrooms
Am thinking, garlic sauté the mushrooms, sweat the leeks with some butter, bacon bits in dh's half? Will this be the best quiche ever? I have no cream and only semi skimmed milk, and have just had a look on t'internet, lots of recipes suggest milk. What could I use instead to make creamy?
Thanks, yes I think that is what I am worried about re soggy quiche, when I did make my own pastry last it was great, but I need quick and easy and BEST EVER! I meant in my op that recipes online suggest cream not milk, I will mix egg with milk. Have Parmesan and strong cheddar to heap in. Will bake blind as well to crisp pastry
Quiche is in the oven, used 1 whole egg and 2 egg yolks but there was a crack in the pastry and the pastry case was swimming in egg when I put it in the oven, going to be a soggy disaster isn't it! Dammit. Have some lovely rosemary lemony potatoes to go with it so hopefully the overall meal won't be a let down.
Quiche update: it's not bad but dh accidentally ate most of the mushroom side and complained there was not enough bacon, and left me with none to eat! The amazing thing is that dd2 who has to be cajoled into eating anything not familiar is woofing it back!
