Demotivated to cook new stuff every day? All you need is a hungry husband to push you into the kitchen every hour for ‘something nice to eat’. And that’s what pushed me to bake my first quiche for breakfast this Sunday morning. I was anxious but looks like it turned out just fine.

Sausage and cheese quiche

For the short crust pastry, I used:

  • Refined Flour
  • Butter (1/4th qty of the flour)
  • Pinch of salt and sugar
  • Ice cold water

The above ingredients rolled into a doughand set aside in a cool place.

For the filling I used:

  • 2 chicken sausages – diced oblique
  • Half a capsicum
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 3/4th cup Milk
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • A slice of Cheddar cheese

I rolled out the pastry dough, stuck it to the bottom of a quiche pan, pricked the base with a fork and blind baked it at 190 deg C for about 20 mins. Set it aside to cool.

Next, I stir fried the sausages with capsicum, added the milk to the beaten egg, added in the sausage mixture and seasoning.

Poured in the batter into the quiche crust. Sliced the cheese slice into thin strips and placed them evenly over the filling.

Baked the quiche at 200 deg C for another 25 mins and this is how it looked.
