Quiche - do you think of this as something that comes ready-made or do you make your own?

Am curious

Always make my own as they're so easy to do. IMO ready-made are plappy and don't taste of anything.

diedandgonetodevon Tue 02-Jun-09 12:31:29

Far too easy to make to want to buy a tasteless ready made one IMO.

We (DH is the specialist) make our own.

Used to buy ready-made pastry until we realised how easy it is to make pastry.

ThePellyandMe Tue 02-Jun-09 12:35:19

I make my own. So much nicer.

See, that's what I thought. I have never bought a ready-made quishe and it wouldn't cross my mind to as they are so easy to make. But a friend of mine today said "I've never even thought to make my own quiche OMDB, you'll have to give me your recipe!" when I mentioned that we where having it for supper tonight and she asked me where I get mine from grin

I have written out a basic recipe for her with ideas for different fillings.

I buy them. They seem very hard to me!

What receipe's do you use?

EyeballsintheSky Tue 02-Jun-09 12:38:17

OK smart alecs! Recipes please I've never made my own blush Can I make it in a breadmaker? wink

shinyshoes Tue 02-Jun-09 12:41:17

oooh please someone post a tried and tested recipe pretty please grin

princessmel Tue 02-Jun-09 12:41:28

Do you buy the pastry? Is it shortcrust?

And do you mix the eggs and cream?

I have no idea.

brimfull Tue 02-Jun-09 12:41:35

dh makes them here too

much niced than shop bought

EyeballsintheSky Tue 02-Jun-09 12:42:22

Eggs, cream, nutmeg in a pastry case? Isn't that a custard tart?

SheherazadetheGoat Tue 02-Jun-09 12:43:15

you are thinking of vanilla.

SheherazadetheGoat Tue 02-Jun-09 12:44:57

you will never buy a 'quiche' again

HaventSleptForAYear Tue 02-Jun-09 12:45:31

Half a pot of crème fraiche, 2 or 3 eggs mixed up together with a bit of salt and pepper.

Put some filling (cooked bacon & mushrooms, or we like goat's cheese and salmon and broccoli) onto the pastry.

Pour the cream mixture on top.

Put in oven til it looks cooked (20 mins?)

You could put some parmesan on top if you wanted.

princessmel Tue 02-Jun-09 12:46:13

Could I do that, but buy the pastry??

SheherazadetheGoat Tue 02-Jun-09 12:47:04

yes you can buy the pastry. it is a piece of piss though if you have a food processor.

princessmel Tue 02-Jun-09 12:48:16

I don't have one. I could cope with rolling out and filling though. Deffo.

Yum! Think I am going to make a quiche for supper tonight!

I am rubbish at pasty, so often buy ready made, but do my own filling.

Also buy them from the local deli which is lush, but supermarket ones are always soggy and bland.

Get your pastry case (home-made or bought)

Fry chopped bacon in pan
add chopped onion, fry till soft,
add handful spinach, cook couple mins till wilted.
Take pan off heat

Grate large chunk cheddar.

Whisk 3 or 4 eggs and a splosh of cream with a fork. Add ground pepper and lots of whatever herbs you like - fresh or dry.

Put bacon/onion/spinach mix into pastry case.
Add egg/cream mix.
plonk cheese on top. Grind pepper over it all.

put in oven till top is browning nicely.

Enjoy with new potatoes, salad and a glass of wine.
