CHEESY MUSHROOM & LEEK QUICHE

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 tbs. Butter
  • 1 Large Leek, finely chopped
  • 200g Mushrooms, finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp. Minced Garlic
  • 1/4 Cup Self Raising Flour
  • 1 Cup Shredded Cheese (Pizza Blend)
  • 1 tsp. Mustard Powder
  • Salt & Pepper (to taste)
  • 1 tsp. Dry Parsley
  • 5 Eggs
  • 1/4 Cup Milk

METHOD

  1. Preheat your oven to 170°C.
  2. Set your butter to melt in a medium sized saucepan. Add your leek, mushrooms and garlic and cook until soft. Set aside to cool.
  3. In a large bowl, combine flour, cheese, mustard powder, salt, pepper and parsley.
  4. Add eggs one at a time, stirring in between each addition. This will help make a fluffy quiche!
  5. Add milk and stir to combine.
  6. Lightly grease a baking dish and pour in your quiche mixture – I used a 26cm round baking dish. You can sprinkle a bit of extra cheese on the top, finished with a bit of extra parsley.
  7. Bake in the oven (the middle rack is usually best) for about 20 minutes, or until top is lightly golden and a skewer inserted into the center of the quiche comes out clean.
  8. Allow to cool slightly, slice up and serve.
