Cheat’s Quiche by Kirsty Leggatt

Hi Everyone,

I don’t have anything interesting to post this week so I’ve decided to post another recipe. This is one of those cheat recipe’s that’s easy but taste’s good. The “crust”, if I can call it that, comes from the crushed biscuits that have been soaked in milk. In Australia, we use Sao biscuits but here in Madrid I use, “Barber – Cream Crackers” but you can use any savory cracker that you wish. Also, you can change the ingredients to suit your taste. You can replace the bacon with tuna and add different vegetables. Serve warm or chilled – a great picnic dish.

  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/2 x 250g packet (15) Sao biscuits (or equivalent), roughly crushed
  • 6 (200g) shortcut bacon rashers, finely diced
  • 2 medium carrots, grated
  • 2 cups grated tasty cheese (or you can use a different cheese)
  • 2 tblsp chopped parsley
  • 3 x 59g eggs beaten
  1.  Grease a 20cm x 30cm rectangular dish. Pour milk over crushed biscuits in a large bowl, cover and refrigerate for 1-2 hours or until biscuits are softened. Mash with a fork to break up any remaining lumps.
  2. Add bacon, grated carrot, grated cheese, chopped parsley (and any other preferred vegetables) and eggs to softened biscuits and mix well.
  3. Spread mixture into prepared dish and bake in an 180 C deg preheated oven for 30-40 minutes or until set and golden. Stand for 10 minutes before cutting into squares. Serve with a leafy salad.
