The Incredible Quiche

This is a recipe from my mother for a really most incredible quiche! You actually shake it together (“Oh, just a little something I threw together for dinner, dear!”) in an air-tight jar or canister. Into the oven, and hey presto! Instant Quiche! (well, sort of!)

You will need:

  • 3 beaten eggs
  • 1 chopped onion
  • 1 and a ½ Cups of milk
  • Bacon pieces, or chopped ham
  • 1 Tablespoon of oil
  • 2 to 3 Tablespoons of parsley
  • ½ a Cup of Self Raising Flour
  • Chopped spinach or silverbeet
  • 1 Cup of grated cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional: chopped tomato, spring onion or mushrooms

And this is what you do:

Put all (yes, all!) the ingredients into a large plastic container with a tightly fitting lid and shake well for one minute. Grease a quiche dish well, and pour in the mixture. Cook in the oven for approximately 45 minutes at 170C (338F), or until the quiche is firm when gently wobbled (oven temperatures may vary)

To serve:

This truly incredible quiche can be eaten hot or cold, preferably with a fresh green salad, crusty French bread, good company – and a nice bottle of red wine, if you’re celebrating!
