Quiche is a savoury type of open crust pastry spinach. You can add basically anything as the filling such as sautéed mushrooms, spinach, hotdogs, tunas, onions, broccoli and even bacons. I had baked spinach and hotdog quiche for my family Christmas party and they love it a lot. It is so tasty and not that difficult to make the quiche. All you need to do is to prepare the dough, fillings, shredded cheddar & mozzarella cheese and savoury quiche custard.
Ingredients – Dough
Milk Powder 18g
Sieve the flour, salt and milk powder.
Rub butter into the sifted dry ingredients to a crumbly cosistentency.
Add water to the mixture.
Mix to a light smooth paste.
Let the dough rest for 30mins before use. I had made the dough one day before hand and keep it in the fridge before using. The dough pastry recipe is for 2 18cm Quiche.
Ingredients – Quiche Custard
Fresh eggs 163g
Fresh milk 187.5g
Fresh cream 150g
White Pepper 1g
Paprika Powder 0.5g
Ground Nutmeg 0.5g
Whisk eggs well. Add milk and cream and whisk till smooth.
Add in the salt, white pepper, paprika powder and ground nutmeg.
( I do not weigh the fillings but is up to your preference to add the amount to the base of shell)
Pork Hot Dog
Shredded Cheddar Cheese
Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
Roll the dough pastry and transfer it to the aluminium tin.
Sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese to the bottom of the shell.
Add in the spinach to the next layer.
Follow by the pork hot dog.
Sprinkle shredded mozzarella cheese to the top layer.
After the fillings are placed in the pastry shell, pour in the quiche custard carefully.
Slowly placed the quiche to the oven. I had used the Rowenta oven to bake the Quiche. Using the pastries mode, i had set the oven temp to 200 degree celcius. The Quiche was baked for 30mins.
When the top surface of the filling takes on a slightly domed apparance, it is an indication that the custard has set. If this surface breaks, this will indicate that it had boiled.
The quiche is delicious and is wipe out fast once it is being served on the dining table. It really makes me happy to see that my family members enjoy eating the food that I had prepared for them.
