smoked salmon, broccoli and chive quiche

9 May

The Man and I picked up some gorgeous treats at Ms Marmite Lover’s Underground Market including some lovely smoked salmon and smoked cheese from The Artisan Smokehouse their products are more widely available in Norfolk and Suffolk (they are based in Suffolk) but you can buy online too. As both products are a bit special I wanted to try to make the most of them so decided to combine them.

Not bad for a first attempt ( I’ve never made quiche before) but it confirmed that The Man makes better pastry than me; cold hands!! Here is the recipe I used, based on my Mum’s and one that could be adapted for almost any filling.

Ingredients

Short Crust pastry, enough to cover 10 inch dish. I used this recipe doubled. Or you can buy it!

Filling.

4 eggs whisked

1/2 pt milk

handful chopped chives

50g grated smoked cheddar cheese

120g smoked salmon, sliced

5 florets or broccoli, broken up into little “trees”, part cooked.

pinch salt and pepper

Method

Pre heat over to 180. Roll out pasty, line quiche tin with pastry and blind bake for 15 minutes. While pastry is cooking, part cook the broccoli for 2 minutes and allow to cool. Next mix together, eggs, milk, cheese, salmon, broccoli, salt and pepper. Take pastry base out of the over and allow to cool for 10 minutes. Pour filling mixture into the base and bake to 25 to 30 min or until the middle is just wobbly.

Serve with green salad or the seasonal recommendation, new potatoes and asparagus.
