Recipe Monday

Another one of my fabulous Tupperware recipes...

Simply Delicious Quiche
200g cream cheese
125g cold butter
1-1 1/4 cups plain flour

1/2 cup grated cheese
1/4 cup chargrilled capsicum, sliced
6 fresh asparagus spears (or sliced zucchini)
Handful baby cherry tomatoes
200g shredded ham or bacon
3 spring onions, chopped
2 Tbs chopped parsley
2 Tbs plain flour
1 Tbs mayonnaise
5 large eggs
1 - 1/4 cups milk
Salt and pepper

Preheat oven to 220 degrees celcuis. Grease quiche dish.
Roughly chop cream cheese and place in microwave jug. Cover and microwave on medium/high for 2 minutes or until cream cheese is soft and warm.
Working quickly, grate the cold butter (I use margarine and dollop it in small spoonfuls) and add to the warm cream cheese. Quickly mix together.
Stir in 1 cup of flour and mix well. If dough feels too soft add remaining flour. Continue mixing until a dough is formed. Tip the dough into the greased dish and press out over the base and sides.
Place all the filling ingredients into a large bowl with a seal (Tuppeware of course!) and seal well. Shake until well combined. pour into the pastry case and season with freshly ground salt and pepper.
Place into oven and bake for 15 minutes. Reduce the temperature to 180 and bake for a further 30 minutes or until golden and firm.
Delicious served warm or cold.

**For a quick frittata, pour filling directly into dish without pasty and bake in 180 degree oven for 30 minutes.

**Filling Variations:

Thinly sliced salami, black olives and fresh torn basil leaves.

Pan fried potato cubes and sweet potato cubes, chopped red onion and pine nuts.
