I would have to say Quiche is one of my favourites. It’s fuss free, easy to use as a snack or as an addition to a meal, nutritious and a great way to use up those surplus eggs. In my last post I mentioned how wonderful goose eggs are. Well that very afternoon when the boys were collecting the eggs and putting our feathered friends away for the night, a precious surprise lay hidden behind the compost bins, a goose egg! I’m delighted! They are wonderful to cook with and make the most amazing Impossible Pie.
The guinea fowl are settling into their new home. They are funny things to watch, it’s lovely to have some again!
Well with my egg bowl bursting, I decided to make this delicious Quiche and I thought you might like to try it too.
Self-Crusting Corn Quiche
- 4 Eggs
- 1 Cup Milk
- 1/2 Cup Self-Raising Flour
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 425g can Creamed Corn
- 1 1/2 Cups grated Tasty Cheese
- 1/2 Red Capsicum
- Shallots or onion
- Bacon Rashers ( 2-3)
Heat oven to 220 Degrees Celcius.
I used red capsicum and shallots because that’s what I had on hand in the garden, you can use whatever suits you. I chopped up my capsicum, shallots and bacon and fried them off. While they are cooling mix your first 4 ingredients together in a bowl. Stir in your corn and cheese, then add your ingredients from the frying pan. If you have any parsley on hand that would be lovely too.
Pour into a lined lamington tray or whatever quiche dish you would like to use, it should be around 20-23 cm in size. Bake for 20-30mins, or until the centre is firm. Serve warm or cold.
I find my mind starting to wonder to things like our youngest going back to school and our oldest son leaving home to start university and all that entails. Finding my routine again and I guess starting a new season in life where we will have only one of our three children left at home. Life keeps moving and changing, and with it so to the structure of our days. But with those changes come new beginnings and new experiences. Life is never dull, and much like a garden where one thing ends something new and exciting awaits!
