Quiche is one of my favourite quick meals, it can be a nice dinner or brunch or lunch! so easy to prepare & so many creations you can come up with, according to your taste! You only have to follow the basic dough recipe & the basic filling recipe ,then you can do it your favourite way using meat, chicken, fish ,or even do it  vegetarian like this recipe here.

Ingredients:


Dough: (for a 26 cm Tart pan)

1 & 1/2 cup flour (nearly 250 gm)
1 egg
A pinch of Salt
125 gm cold butter cut in cubes
2 Tablespoons cold water

Filling:

The basic 3 filling ingredients are:
*4 Eggs
*200 ml whipping cream
*200 gm grated Gouda cheese (or 100 gm Gouda & 100 Mozzarella)

To those ingredients I also add :
*Broccoli (cooked 5 minutes in salted water) (nearly 4 Tablespoons)
*Black Olives (nearly 3 Table spoons)
*Green,Yellow,Red Pepper cut in cubes (nearly 3 Tablespoons)
*Mushroom (3 Tablespoons)
*sweet corn (3 Tablespoons)
*Salt & Pepper

Preparation:

Mix dough ingredients & roll it out on a floured surface then put it in the tart pan.
Blindly bake the dough by adding parchment paper over the dough & adding beans over the paper ( as shown in the picture below) in a preheated oven (200°C) for 5-7 minutes. Then remove the beans & continue backing for another 7-8 minutes.
Take out from the oven & add the filling ingredients after mixing them in a bowl & enter the oven for around 15 minutes till brown on top.

Für den Teig:
250 g Mehl
125 g Butter
1 Ei
2 EL kaltes Wasser

Für den Belag:
4 Eier
200 ml Sahne
200 g geriebener Gouda
4 EL gekochter Brokkoli
3 EL schwarze Oliven
3 EL Pilze
3 EL Mais
3 EL Paprika, gewürfelt



Roll out dough in the Tart pan & remove the edges by pressing them with the rolling pin. (Don't throw the removed edges, keep them in the freezer or make a mini tart or mini Quiche with them by using the cupcake form)

*Alle Teigzutaten zu einem Teig verkneten und auf einer bemehlten Arbeitsfläche dünn ausrollen. Eine 26 cm Tarteform damit auslegen.

Make holes with your fork to keep your dough flat & to prevent it from  rising up.

*Mehrmals mit einer Gabel einstechen, damit der Teig beim Backen keine Luftblasen bekommt.

Cover the dough with parchment paper & heavy beans for blind baking. (Don't throw away the beans ,keep them  in a jar for next time) Enter oven for 7 minutes.

*Die Form mit getrockneten Erbsen füllen und 7 Minuten im vorgeheizten Backofen blind backen.

After 7 minutes remove the parchment paper & beans & RE-enter the oven for 7 more minutes. This how the dough appears after backing for nearly 15 minutes in the oven , It will shrink a little bit ,don't worry about that .
Add filling ingredients over the half baked dough & enter the oven for 15-20 minutes.

*Alle Zutaten für den Belag vermischen und auf dem vorgebackenen Teig verteilen.
This is how Quiche looks like after it's done!

* FERTIG!

Let it cool for around 15 minutes before cutting it into slices.
 

*15 minuten Kühlen lassen,dann schneiden.
