Crustless quiche

Pastry, mmmm….DEELISH. But, not conducive to staying in the same size trousers if you eat it often. So what we need sometimes is a gorgeous crustless quiche, all the flavour, less of the trouser-shopping. And here it is. Mix and match with the suggested ingredient variations. Serve with salad, and I have mine with baked beans too cos I’m weird like that. Shhluurrp.

P.S. This is brilliant for using up surplus eggs if you keep chickens, sometimes I have a kitchen full of eggs in summer when they’re laying at full-pelt, so I make a few of these and freeze them. You can make individual ones using muffin tins too.

Ingredients
  • 6 large free range organic eggs
  • 1 chopped white (as opposed to red) onion
  • 2 large handfuls of washed spinach, or a few pieces of chopped frozen spinach (tends to come in golf-ball size lumps so use 6)
  • 150g strong cheddar, grated
  • splash of double cream, about 6 tablespoons
  • sea salt, black pepper
  • olive oil
  • dried mixed herbs
  • Choose 2-3 of the following to add – sun dried tomatoes, halved baby tomatoes, peas, feta, chopped pancetta or bacon, leeks, broccoli
Instructions
Fry the onion and mixed herbs in olive oil. Mean time beat the eggs with the cream, salt and pepper and stir in the cheese.

Butter a 20-22cm flan dish and add the cooked onion and herbs to cover the base. Now add the other two ingredients you’ve chosen, in the picture I used feta, peas and spinach. Now cover it with the egg and cream mixture and top with the grated cheddar.

Bake at 180C for about 20-25 mins until cooked through and browned.
