Broccoli, Bacon and Mushroom Quiche

Wow, life has been real havoc lately; tending to my new little one and J-man adjusting to his new kindy. I hardly have the time to experiment with any new recipes and feel that everything is due to be done…like post something on my blog. Haha. I keep telling myself, ‘I need to do this already….or do that already….get a haircut, scrub the bathroom floor, empty the pantry of expired stuff, plan for CNY dinner…’ as soon as I have some or little free time to sit down, one would either be crying for feed or the other for meals and sleep.

Fortunately, I found the time to bake this quiche for some friends who came over to visit Sarah. I had initially planned to do a whole proper English tea spread but in the end, a few people came because others were preoccupied with their plans. I was inspired to do quiche having seen some other bloggers making it lately like Kelly and Quay Po. I did quiche before and took a loooong pause after that so it’s time to revisit this dish again.

If you ask me, you can put anything in a quiche. A quiche is basically a frittata or omelette with pie crust. I suppose you can see it in a way that if you take away the crust, you have something of a meal for lunch or dinner but with the crust, it’s very suited for brunch or tea.

I made my crust using a food processor and I always make a bit more so I can keep the excess pastry in the fridge and use it to make another quiche with a different kind of filling.

A quiche is really such a great dish for those times of entertaining when you don’t wish to do a lot of work in the kitchen and you know your guests won’t eat all that much. Goes well with tea or coffee or any hot beverages.

This was also a chance for me to christen my new pie pan with removable bottom. Although I could lift the whole quiche out of the pan to reveal that nice grooved sides of the crust, I couldn’t or rather didn’t know how to remove the bottom piece, so I left it there. Haha. Anyways, when you cut into it, it provides a nice level bottom too.

    Your quiche looks soooo delicious! I don’t think I can ever resist a piece (or few) of quiche really. Yeah it is indeed quite tricky to remove the bottom, usually takes a few tries for me because I’m always too eager to remove them from the pan and almost always scald my fingers!

    The trick is make sure the crust has loosen from the bottom (with a butter knife if needed), then tip the bottom a bit and use a spatula or said knife to push it out while sliding the pan out. Leaving it in is of course a better option 😛

      Hi kelly, i was too eager i guess, if i left it to cool a bit more then it will be firm enough to lift out but i served it right from the oven so it was wobbly. I didn’t dare try to take it out in case i drop the whole thing! Now that would’ve been so paiseh.

    I think your guests must have ‘awwed’ at u, since u still could bake them a quiche. Don’t worry too much about blogging.. once u have more rest, then come back with a vengeance.

    If you want to protect the base of the pan, line it with some baking paper so that it won’t get knife marks when u cut. It makes lifting from the pan easier too.
    I use a cleaver to do that normally, then slide it into the serving plate.
