Here is a very simple and effective recipe for ‘savoury custard’ that is used in quiches:
- 300 ml cream
- 200 ml eggs (about 4 eggs)
Whisk the eggs and cream together and add a pinch of salt and pepper.
Once you have prepared and rested your shortcrust pastry (see previous recipe), then roll it out until almost transparent. Line your pie tin and fill with whatever savoury filling you desire. Fill up the tart tin with Creme Royal and bake at 180 degrees celsius.
Cheese is good in quiches as it gives colour, flavour and taste. As for a crisp salad on the side… well, that goes without question!
