Special Treat Seafood Quiche for Lunch this afternoon. Hubby agreed it’s super delicious after the first bite, and although I say so myself it super delicious.
- 6 X-large eggs
- 250 ml cream
- 125ml milk
- 25ml corn starch (Maiziena)
- 1-1½ tsp fresh minced/crushed garlic (depending on your own preference)
- 1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese + extra for topping
- 6 medium mushrooms
- 1 large onion
- 340 g cooked shrimps
- 150 g small scallops
- 150 g clams
Wash and slice the mushrooms and chop the onion into small pieces.
Melt some margarine (butter if you prefer) in a pan and start to sauté the mushrooms, then the onions in some garlic and keep aside (only until glossy, not brown).
Next do the same with the shrimps, scallops, and clams.
*Note: I sauté them all individually and I added some garlic here as well. In total, I used ±1½ tsp crushed garlic.
In a large deep bowl break the eggs, add cream and ½ of the milk and whisk together.
Mix the corn starch with the other ½ of the milk and mix through the egg mixture.
Add all the sauteed ingredients together with the egg mixture and blend through.
If you use store-bought pastry, line the base of your dish with the pastry and pour the mixture on the pastry, but you can also do it crustless.
I used puff pastry as I had some in the freezer, and I did use a tiny bit of spray and cook before I placed the pastry in the dish. I only covered the bottom; I did not do rims as well.
Sprinkle some extra cheese on top, with parsley as decoration, and bake at 180°C / 350°F for approximately 45 minutes or until it's set, and you have a nice brown topping.
Serve hot with fresh Greek salad. I made up the recipe but it's delicious and now we still have leftovers for dinner as well.

Should you be interested to showcase your recipes in the same format as above, then you need to visit the links below:
I am using this and the only issue I have is that I did not start earlier! 😢 This is a fantastic feature and plugin, to have on your blog when you share recipes. Your recipe has a set structure and Google loves it. Would you like it and have Google include it and show it as a search result when someone searches for a recipe? Yes OR No?
My guess would be that you will answer YES to the above. For that reason alone, it’s highly beneficial to use the WP Tasty plugin!
You can type it out in the body of your post, but having a recipe card that’s aesthetically pleasing and when laid out for sure has a benefit in that it will keep your readers on your page longer to read the full recipe and hopefully leave a comment and try your recipe.
