Quiche Me, Dahling!

Like Chinese food, I like the IDEA of eating quiche, but I don’t like to make it. I don’t know why that is, but I think it has something to do with the eggs. It just sounds so high-maintenance, like souffl├ęs or custards. Eggy things that need tempering and beating and folding. And then I’m disappointed and always think, this is just an egg dish. I spent all that time and high expectation on an egg dish! Bah!

BUT, (there’s always a but!) sometimes I think all that extra effort is worth it. Like homemade ice-cream or this dish. My Jedi Masters promised it to be good, and deliver they did!

Recipe source: The Cooking Forum (Thanks Annie!)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F

Easy - doesn't require rolling, just press down with fingers and back of a spoon into a 24 cm (9.5 inch) pyrex flan dish or pie plate.

1 - 1/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup cheddar cheese (grated)
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup walnuts finely chopped – I used a food processor

Mix these ingredients in a bowl, cutting in butter with two knives until crumbly then press into a pie dish, including up the sides. Bake in pre-heated oven for five minutes. Then remove from oven. Meanwhile mix the following ingredients in a bowl:

3 eggs beat till frothy
3/4 cup sour cream
1 cup mozzarella cheese (grated)
1/2 onion, chopped
1 can salmon (7 3/4 ounces) – Or use some fresh, baked salmon
1/4 cup mayonnaise
Pour the filling ingredients into the pie crust - bake in oven approximately 45 minutes or until knife inserted in centre comes out clean.

**Note: The crust for this was AMAZING; however, I felt the quiche "needed something" like maybe some dill or a sour cream dill sauce.

Kathy, that Salmon Quiche not only looks good, it IS good. I've made it and almost ate the entire thing ... and have the squiche-y hips to prove it.

Hi. I just found your link on "Pure Florida," and I really like your site.

I selected "orangette" from your menu, then I read about you eating chocolate chip cookies every day in extravagant amounts until they're gone. Your honesty is refreshing!

I'll be back.

Ooops! I see that "Orangette" is not part of your site but is one of your recommended sites. THANKS FOR ALL THE GOOD REFERENCES.

And thanks for the Quiche with Walnut Crumb Crust!
