Quiche

Most of the quiche recipes contain lots of cheese and butter. I was eager to try one quiche but these guilt feeling ingredients refrained me from trying it. Then yesterday I tried this not much buttery and no cheese quiche which tasted nice. It is a healthy breakfast for your family. Here I've tried sausages as main ingredient. You can make it more healthy by choosing your favourite ingredient and loading with cheese if your kids like it.

Ingredients
For the base pastry
  • Whole wheat flour - 1 cup
  • Butter - 10 gms (frozen)
  • Olive oil - 3 tsp (frozen)
  • Ice cold water - as required
  • Salt to taste
For filling
  • Sausage - 2 
  • Onion - 1 medium
  • Egg - 1 
  • Milk - 2 tsp
  • Oregano - 1/2 tsp
  • Any pizza cheese (as required) - I didn't use

Method
For the base pastry
  • Rub frozen butter and frozen oil out into the wheat flour.
  • Add salt to taste
  • Add required amount of cold water to make a dough. Cover it with aluminium foil and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
For filling
  • Mix together milk and egg. Add salt and pepper as required.
  • Add grated cheese to egg-milk mix. Keep aside (If you're not using cheese, omit this step)
  • In a hot pan add little oil and followed by chopped onion. Add salt to taste.
  • Add chopped sausage pieces and stir fry. 
  • Add oregano and pepper powder. Stir fry until done and keep aside

Finally
  • Preheat oven at 180 degrees centigrade.
  • Take the refrigerated dough and roll it into the size of your pie/tart dish.
  • Butter the base of the tart dish
  • Press the rolled out dough into the dish and cut off the extra at the rims. 
  • Put the filling into it and pour the egg- milk-cheese mixture. 
  • Bake in preheated oven at 180 degree centigrade for 25-30 minutes

  7. That pastry looks flawless! I have always distanced myself from making any sort of pies 'coz the very thought of making the pastry dough seems a bit daunting...have seen how some of the best cooks in Master Chef struggle with it lol Gotta try it sometime soon :D
