Quiche Lorraine

Quiche is never wrong! Wonderful lunch or even a light dinner. Incredibly tasty despite few ingredients. The classic quiche calls for smoked bacon. Here I have replaced the smoked bacon with ordinary bacon and smoked ham. It’s not diet food with cream, bacon, and lots of eggs, but it is incredibly tasty. In standard cases, you make a simple egg filling, but here I mix in some flour in the egg filling, which makes the mixture slightly firmer. Suitable for the quiche is a simple green salad with a tasty dressing. Continue reading “Quiche Lorraine”

Well, I didn’t have to wait long for my eldest son’s comment: – you have had something Persian in this! It was good, and they enjoyed it despite the saffron. Lesson learned: never change a successful recipe!   Continue reading “Lasagna!”

Best minced meat pie.

When we are many, I simply make a big pie – but when it’s just me and my husband, I prefer to make several smaller pies – we eat what we can and the rest will be kept in the freezer.
