Quiche isi

Cold and wet outside? Here’s my perfect dinner for winter evenings.

Ingredients:

for the lazy like me: buy the dough, 32cm diameter

400 g grated cheese, I bought a mix for Fondue with Gruyeres, Appenzeller and Vacherin Fribourgeois

if you buy a mix, make sure it only contains the cheese, not also the wine etc. (like from Gerber).

Else, all full fat cheeses will work, but definitely not the ugly Emmentaler, nor gouda or any other artificial cheese.

3 eggs

4dl milk

50 g bacon cut in small cubes (me: used ham to save some calories)

Herbs: Oregano, Thym, dried Chili, Salt, Pepper and if you happen to have it too, Montreal Spices

Preheat oven to 220c. Place dough in a baking pan of 30cm diameter, punch the base with a fork in order to allow the dough to become crispy while baking.

In a pan, fry the onions and bacon or ham, do not add butter or oil, the meat has enough fat. Let the mix cool down a bit, then add it to the cheese and mix it. Add some pepper and Montreal Spice and Chili to your liking. Now spread this mix evenly on the dough.

In a bowl, beat the eggs, pour in the milk, stir  and add Oregano, Thym, Salt, Pepper, Montreal Spices, Chili or any other herbs you fancy. Pour the mix evenly on the cheese. Bake in oven for 20 minutes at 220c, then lower the temperature to 180c and bake for another 20 minutes. Take the tart out and let it cool for 10 minutes. Cut and enjoy together with a salad.

The Quiche is quite nourrishing, it is a rich dinner for 2 or a small one for 4, or if cut in 8 pieces a nice starter for 8.
