The journey of a tart (or basil, cherry tomato, potato & corn quiche)

Our Quiche starts off as a layer of short pastry (Prepare a batch of short pastry – see https://whippingitup.wordpress.com/2010/02/19/how-to-make-short-pastry-for-quiches-etc/) covered by 4 chopped onions and a handful of basil...
It is then further layered with 3 medium sized cooked & sliced potatoes, crumbled feta and a generous few handfuls of grated cheddar...
And finished off with fresh corn (from 2-3 cobs) and cherry tomatoes before it is filled with savoury custard (double the recipe at https://whippingitup.wordpress.com/2010/02/20/creme-royal-for-quiches/) and baked at 180 degrees until cooked & golden brown...
The Quiche rests in the garden until it is cool enough...
To be summonsed into the house...
By the Chief Taster...
Who finds the cherry tomatoes highly commendable...
And gathers further tasters...
The Quiche is approved of and sent to the table...
But then quite suddenly disappears and is never seen again...

  1. 🙂 thanks Cheryl!! I must say, my family loved this tart saying it was even better than the cherry tomato quiche because of the interesting textures. I always add lots of extra cheese on top of quiches and often add a chilli for a bit of a bite… hope all is going well in the NY purple-fast-lane! x

  3. GUILTY!!! I was part of the collaboration that made it DISAPPEAR! Now, if only we could make it RE-APPEAR … YUM!! With your recipe, now, we can! Thanks Whipping it Up!! xxxx

  4. You should’ve joined our Grand Cheese Off with this creation! It would have fit in swimmingly with all that lovely grated cheddar on top.
