This is my first attempt at a quiche. I didn’t really like eating quiche as a kid, I suppose it is because the usually have onions in them.* Ick. However, this one was quick and easy to make and it tastes delicious. It smelt amazing while it was baking and looked pretty impressive when I took it out of the oven. Simon and I have been eating it cold as a part of our lunches this week.
1 sheet pre-made savoury short crust pastry
1 ½ cups cooked ham (either cubed or shaved and sliced)
1 ½ cups cheese, grated
1 cup broccoli florets, chopped (if using frozen broccoli make sure it is thawed and well drained)
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon mild mustard
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon pepper
Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line a 22cm tart tin with the pastry.
Layer ham, cheese and thawed broccoli on top of the pastry. In medium bowl, beat all remaining ingredients (eggs, milk, mustard, salt and pepper) until well blended. Pour over broccoli.
Bake 35 to 45 minutes or until knife inserted in centre comes out clean. Let stand for at least 5 minutes before serving. Cut into wedges.
