Exceptions for exceptional food
So for this Quiche I make an exception and post a recipe which is not vegetarian.
As a big quiche is not easy to eat alone, I made mini-Quiches that I put into the freezer. Getting them out there in the evening helps preparing a found-in-the-fridge-bento!
First, make a dough:
For a 26-cm-baking pan, use
200 g flour
100 g butter (or a mix of butter and margarine)
a pinch of baking powder
a pinch of salt
some water (as much as needed…)
For the mini-Quiches I took 300 g flour, 150 butter, and 1 egg. It hasn’t been the perfect dough-filling-ratio for the minis though – I had some filling left…
Cool the dough at least for 1 hour in the fridge, roll it out and put it in a baking pan. Put this pan back into the fridge.
For the filling you need:
150 g bacon (diced)
2 onions (chopped)
150-200 g grated cheese
1/8-1/4 l milk (or a mix of milk and cream)
1 tblsp starch flour
In a pan, fry the bacon (no oil needed) and add the onions. Sauté for about 15 minutes. Meanwhile preheat the oven (180-200°C) and bake the crust for about 10 minutes. (It’s important that the baking pan with the dough comes directly from the fridge!)
Whisk together starch flour, milk, eggs and seasonings.
Put bacon and onions in the prepared crust, cover with cheese and then pour the filling over it. Bake for about 30-35 minutes.
If you make minis, just observe it well, it takes maybe 15-20 minutes.
