Seems like a good day for quiche. It’s anything goes pizza Tuesday but it is 90F feels like a 190F. Jane next door suggested we raid our larders and stay in. She had many eggs and suggested scrambled. I suggested quiche. I had freed up the quiche pan.
It was good. I started by making a pastry flour, shortening and water. 1C. / 1/3rd C. / 1/4th C. In general proportions. Chill for a bit before rolling out. Rolling out on parchment paper makes it easier to get the pastry into the pan.
List of stuff for quiche: broccoli about a cup, ham about 1/4 cup, cheddar cheese 1 cup, 5 large eggs, 1 1/2 – 1 3/4 cups milk, 1/2 tsp. sugar.
Give fresh broccoli a minute in the microwave. Put ham, broccoli and cheese in pan on the pastry. Mix eggs milk and sugar. Pour over the top of everything. 425F for 15 minutes and continue for 30 minutes at 325F and check after 20 minutes or so. Let stand for 5 minutes after taking out of oven.
Quiche not Lorraine. Pretty good dinner with a little fruit and some brown bread and butter.
