Chicken Sausage Quiche

Chicken Sausage Quiche1

The minimum price for a slice of quiche in a café in Singapore is about $5. At some places you can buy it for $12 a slice with a small salad by the side! Why pay that much when you can make a quiche so easily at home?! You can add quite literally whatever you want to it and make it tasty. It looks and sounds fancy so when you’re throwing a party, or having picnics and potluck events, you can make mini quiches. You can also freeze a quiche quite well but just remember to warm it up in an oven rather than microwaving it. Here’s a recipe that both children and adults will love. I wish all youngsters Happy Children’s Day.

Preparation time:     1 hr

Cooking time:           40 mins

Serves:                       6

Short crust pastry

200 g plain flour, sifted

100 g chilled Q.B.B. Pure Ghee, diced

1 egg yolk

2 tablespoons ice-cold water or just enough

Filling

1 tablespoon Q.B.B. Pure Ghee

200 g shallots, chopped

250 g cocktail chicken sausages, left whole or sliced

70 g Cheddar cheese, grated

70 g grated Mozzarella cheese

200 ml cream

2 large eggs, lightly beaten

Freshly ground black pepper

Salt to taste

METHOD

1          Sift flour into a mixing bowl and rub in Q.B.B. Pure Ghee. Stir in egg yolk and add enough ice-cold water to form a dough.

2          Knead lightly until smooth and cover with cling film and refrigerate for 20 minutes.

3          Roll out pastry between two plastic sheets or non-stick paper until large enough to line a 22 cm quiche flan tin. Lift the pastry into the tin and gently ease it into the sides of the tin.

4          Trim the edge. Prick the base of the pastry and refrigerate for 15-20 minutes and bake in a preheated oven at 180°C for about 20 minutes or until lightly golden. Cool thoroughly.

5          Heat Q.B.B. Pure Ghee in a saucepan and sauté shallots until soft. Dish out and leave to cool. Spread into the pastry case along with the sausages and sprinkle with grated Cheddar cheese and  a dash of ground black pepper.

4          Whisk cream and eggs together. Pour the mixture over the shallots and sausages filling.

5          Spread Mozzarella cheese over the top and bake at 200°C until quiche is set, golden brown and cooked.
