What is a Quiche

Quiche is a French tart consisting of pastry crust filled with savory custard and pieces of cheese, meat, seafood, or vegetables. The best-known variant is quiche Lorraine, which includes lardons or bacon. Quiche can be served hot or cold. It is popular worldwide.

Yield: 8 generous portions

An easy afternoon meal or evening meal with a side salad. Use whatever ingredients you have available in the fridge. I made this to clean out and use up those bits and pieces as I hate to waste and through away any food.

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour 20 minutes


  • 200g Tenderflake puff pastry
  • 1 finely chopped onion
  • 3-4 Tablespoons Butter
  • 1 small head of broccoli, cut into small florets
  • 5 medium sliced mushrooms
  • ½ chopped red pepper
  • 1 heaped tbsp garlic
  • 1 Chicken thigh
  • 2 Chicken drumsticks
  • 4 X-large Eggs
  • ½ cup of sour cream
  • 237 ml carton of cream
  • 125g herb and garlic cream cheese
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 1½ cups grated Cheddar Cheese
  • Basil
  • Thyme
  • Rosemary



  1. I cheated and used storebought, Tenderflake puff pastry for the Crust.
  2. Defrost it by leaving it out on the countertop.
  3. Sprinkle a Silpat mat lightly with flour and roll out the pastry the size of
    your dish.
  4. Spray or paint the bottom of your dish with oil and then drop the pastry in the
    base and set it aside.


  1. Heat the butter in a pan and sauté broccoli florets, mushrooms, red pepper, and garlic until just tender.
  2. Add the shredded meat (pre-cooked) to the mixture set it aside and let it cool down.
  3. In a bowl, whisk together eggs, sour cream, cream, cream cheese, salt, pepper, and add the cheese at the end.
  4. Add Basil, Thyme, and Rosemary spices to taste and mix through.
  5. Pour this egg mixture directly on the unbaked pastry and then spoon in the veggie and meat mixture and spread it out evenly in the dish.
  6. Bake in a preheated oven at 180C / 350F for an hour.
  7. Test with a skewer and when it comes out clean when inserted it should be done.
  8. The middle should be set, and not jiggly.
  9. Remember it will continue to good slightly when you remove it from the oven, so do not overcook it.
  10. Remove your dish from the oven and allow it to cool slightly before slicing.
  11. Serve with a fresh salad as a full meal.
