Whether you are looking for something to serve your friends at a dinner party, a dish for a lazy Sunday brunch, or a summer picnic snack, this Quiche serves all your needs.
Our take on this French classic combines a few fresh and flavourful ingredients, is easy to make, and lusciously delicious served hot or cold. Oh, did we mention it is perfect to cook in the company of others? That’s what we did - have a look here.
Start with the Crust. Mix butter, flour, water and salt together in a large bowl. Knead thoroughly until you get a firm dough. Pack the dough in cling film and let it rest in the fridge for 20 minutes.
Roll out the dough as thinly as you can or press dough into the full surface of the pastry dish and cover with aluminium foil. Prebake in oven at 200ºC for 10 minutes, before you remove the aluminium foil and bake for another 10 minutes.
While waiting for the crust, sauté bacon in a frying pan on medium heat. Add the leek at the end of cooking time.
Whisk the eggs and cream together in a bowl and add grated Jarlsberg®, parsley and the sautéed bacon and leek.
Pour the filling into the crust and top with grated Jarlsberg®. Bake in oven at 200 ºC for 15 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown and the centre is set.
Serve with a crisp, fresh salad and in the company of others.
