Picnic time is upon us and a great way to make a crustless Quiche is in a lining of greaseproof paper.   All you have to do is bake it and it’s ready wrapped for you.  It feels like a little present as you unwrap the Quiche too!  The combination of artichoke and asparagus give a lovely summery taste but you could make this with any of your favourite fillings.   You can eat this warm straight from the oven, or cooled on a flower-filled meadow on a picnic blanket..

METHOD

  • Pre-heat the oven to 375F
  • Line a baking tin with greaseproof paper, with a piece much larger than the tin, so that the sides are covered.
  • Place the asparagus in a saucepan of water and bring to the boil.  Cover and simmer for 8-10 minutes until the asparagus is tender.  Drain and set aside.
  • In a bowl, beat the eggs with the cream and season.   Crumble in the goats cheese.
  • Place the asparagus and artichokes in the greaseproof paper case.
  • Pour in the egg mixture and bake for 30 minutes.
  • Eat and enjoy!

    HI ! Why does it need so many eggs ?! 8 eggs, that sounds a lot to me, have you ever tried with less eggs, and if you have, then how was the outcome ?

      I like a thick quiche, so used a lot of eggs. You could try it with less eggs for a slightly thinner quiche.

    how big a bunch of asparagus? Say – how many stalks? Costco bunches could fill a bread pan….
