Cheaty Salmon and Broccoli Quiche

Every now and then I cheat. I love cooking things from scratch - there's a certain satisfaction to have success with something where you started with the most basic of ingredients. This is not one of those recipes, but it's yummy, easy and also a crowd pleaser.

Serves 8
2 sheets frozen shortcrust pastry
8 eggs
100ml cream
100 ml milk
1.5 cups frozen broccoli
2 rashers bacon diced
10cm leek, finely diced
3/4 cup grated tasty cheese
150gr fresh salmon or small tin of red salmon

  • Preheat oven to 160deg c
  • Grease your pie dish (I just use canola spray)
  • Thaw your pastry and then line your pie dish - fork the lip if you like..(i.e press the back of your fork around the rim to make it look crinkly)
  • Put leek, bacon, cheese on bottom and add broccoli florets
  • Cut fresh salmon into cubes/strips and distribute on the pie crust.
  • Mix eggs, cream, milk and pepper with fork until well combined
  • Pour over top of all other ingredients and with your fork, ensure it mixes throught other ingredients.
  • Put in the oven, check at 30 mins and turn down if looking a bit over brown... cook for a further 30 mins until your egg springs back when you touch it in the centre of the pie.
  • Good to freeze, reheat from frozen.
  • Good to eat cold too.
