Crustless Smoked Salmon, Leek and Red Peppers Quiche

Thursday, March 22, 2012



This crustless quiche is easy to make and great for any meal. The smoked salmon lends a touch of elegance, and the leeks can be substituted with onions or shallots. 

Ingredients:

- 3 eggs
- 1 1/2 cup milk or cream
- 6 oz smoked salmon
- 1 large leek, white and light green parts sliced (about 1 cup of slices)
- 1 small red pepper, chopped 
- 3/4 cup shredded cheese - almost any kind or combination is fine, but not too much strong-flavoured cheese such as Parmesan
- 1 tsp dry mustard (I replaced with Dijon)
- 1/2 tsp thyme
- pinch of cayenne pepper or a bit of hot sauce
- paprika, salt and pepper

Preheat the oven to 375 F.

Saute leeks in a little olive oil. When they begin to soften, add the peppers. Add a little salt and cook for 3-4 minutes. Just before taking off the heat, add the thyme.


Meanwhile, crumble the salmon in a pie plate (I used a 9-inch Pyrex). Cover with the vegetables when done, and then sprinkle with the cheese.


Also meanwhile, blend eggs, milk (or cream), mustard, cayenne or hot sauce, salt (about 1/2 tsp, but less if salmon is salty) and pepper. 

Pour the egg mixture over the rest of the ingredients and sprinkle with paprika


Bake for 45-50 minutes. Start checking after half an hour. If it's getting too brown but the centre is too liquid, cover with foil. When done, the center will still be a bit loose. 



Take the quiche out of the oven (to avoid overcooking). In 5 minutes, the centre will be set, too.



Enjoy!

Your quiche looks so nice. Would you believe it if I told you I have yet to taste salmon? It's true, somehow I haven't had the courage but I would love to learn as the health benefits are wonderful!

I put smoked salmon into everything. We love it. I must make this. If I had not put dinner, up in the crockpot, I would make this.

I guess, Sunday breakfast will have to do.

Perhaps, you would link this to Bake with Bizzy. I am on the look-out for savory baked goods.
