The weather for this Bank Holiday weekend is looking good and even some sunshine too, and as we are still generally confined to our homes and spending this long weekend with our household members it may be fun to have a picnic or afternoon tea in your garden to celebrate this VE Day, so i thought i’d try to help out a little and share a yummy quiche recipe.
In this recipe i have used broccoli, onion and cheese but for a truly luxurious quiche you could blanch asparagus and combine it with smoked fish. British asparagus is in season now, it only has a short season so make the most of it.
(tsp = teaspoon)
Pastry (if you are short of time this can be bought ready made)
Then choose the 1 or 2 flavours you want to add to the above:
Both choices will need blanching for a few minutes so it is only just cooked, don’t over cook it or it will loose its vibrant colour, then submerge in cold water to stop it cooking (this is called the ‘blanching & refreshing’ technique) drain and pat dry with kitchen paper.
FOR A TOUCH OF MEAT:
You could dice and fry Bacon
Raw smoked fish which will cook perfectly within the baking time of the quiche.
Tip: Don’t add too many flavours or over fill the dish!
This bank holiday quiche would look beautiful cut into slices and served in one of our very own serving dishes, for such occasion, in the sun, we recommend using a dolina dish for a summer serving look.
Auds tip: This Quiche recipe is great as it won’t split or curdle, so towards the end of baking you can put in on the base of your oven just to make sure the pastry is cooked through. If you have a Rayburn, Aga or solid top stove just stand it on the cooler end to brown its bottom.
By following this recipe, you could have a perfect quiche addition to your VE Day bank holiday weekend. With good weather predicted for the whole weekend, you can enjoy your quiche in the garden with your family. Many neighbours around the country are coming together for the weekend with social distancing ideas for ways to celebrate. If you decide to make this quiche and enjoy it with family, with your neighbours (safely from a distance), send us a quick snap on Instagram or Facebook, we’d love to see, and you may even get featured on our instagram📸
