Clayton's Quiche, The Quiche You Have When You're Not Having A Quiche!

A long funny title that stems from an advert for a lovely non-alcoholic drink made from herbs etc and called Clayton's Tonic....the drink you have when you're not having a drink! It was really lovely.

So then, my quiche is called a Clayton's Quiche because it doesn't have a pastry case, just 1/4 of flour forms a layer on the bottom and this method saves a lot of time and calories too ;)

You'll need

6 eggs
2 cups of milk/cream/yogurt/ricotta/cottage cheese, whatever you have is good
1/4 plain wholemeal flour
about 2 cups of quichie things such as chopped ham/bacon/tuna, finely chopped spring onion/capsicum/tomato/mushrooms, peas/corn, chopped fresh herbs are lovely too
1 cup of grated cheese

Beat the eggs and milks together
Stir in the flour and your meat and veggies and half the cheese and season well
Pour into a greased flan dish( mine is about 12inches/30cms in diameter)
Sprinkle the remaining cheese over the top and bake at 180C for 30-40 minutes, until the middle is set. If you leave it too long it will become rather rubbery (and that is not lubberly!)

We had a tasty simple salad of lettuce, tomato and capsicum with marinated feta and sundried tomatoes.

It must be Summer!

It fluffed up rather like a souffle but didn't have so far to fall...yummy!

38C is the weather forecast today, I think I'll nip to the shops as soon as they open as I need some olive oil to make Joe's special soap and Mum needs a cartridge for her printer too. I've just put Twitch in his outdoor 'playpen' and the baby doves are watching him with interest...he is NOT happy to be locked up!

Enjoy your day, where-ever you are,
Love from Sue
