Dinner Day 1:

Quiche (with prawns & roast veg)

6 Large Eggs beaten
2 tablespoons Milk
250g Cottage Cheese
Spelt flour 1 tbsp
Any cooked veg - Roast Veg, diced (swede, carrot, onion, courgette - I used left overs from night before's dinner)
Any meat - 200g Small prawns, cooked & peeled, I used frozen and defrosted by running water over them
Any type of cheese - Shredded mature cheddar, 125g
Seasoning to taste (I used herbs de provence, salt and pepper with a dash of caribean seasoning but it is really up to you what you like)

Beat eggs with the milk, add cottage cheese some seasoning and flour, combine until somewhat smooth. Then add in veg, prawns & 1/2 the cheddar. Pour into your cooking dish (I used 3 glass dishes but sometimes I make them in fairy cake pan to create quiche cups)

Top with remaining cheese and some seasoning.

Bake at 200/Gas mark 6 (180 for fan assisted) for 30-40 minutes until the quiche looks firm (no wobble in the surface when you shake it) and is golden.

Remove from oven and let cool for 5-10 minutes, the quiche will shrink as it cools so don't panic if it becomes flat, that is normal!

Remeber this can be customized, I use leftover bacon, swiss cheese & grilled peppers which is a lovely combo. Also, spicy things work well too, like leftover curry or spicy sausage. Have fun with it. I sometimes top it with fresh tomato slices or fresh mushrooms.
This sounds easy enough for our resident non chef Sally! Haha

I might try this for the breakfast thing?? Thanks chicken x

Hi Nic, Thanks for the fab recipes. I am a true novice in the kitchen but desparate to learn, so I was wondering would these quichies freeze or does it spoil them?

Many thanks

The quiche will freeze well, no worries, in fact I always freeze at least half what I make.

Good luck, they are pretty easy. Shout if you have trouble.

Nic:)

1.5 litres of water

Hi Nic

Sorry to be a pain but the Bananaberry Protien bar, is this somehing you made or bought? I love this type of thing and it would also be great to take with me to work so if you have the recipe or one for something similar I would much appreciate it.

Goodness I can't belive all these cooking questions and recipes I am after, I think my bypass has changed something in my brain in regards to actually WANTING to cook...lol:p

Many thanks

How many quiche cups would the ingredients make please?

Would probably be about 18 cups from this recipe, I always do a glass dish (for hubby) and then a tray of 9 for myself. But I think it would be about 2 trays of 9.

Just wondering if I will have enough room in my freezer!!! Also once frozen would I have to defrost then warm through or can they go in the oven frozen???

They are just as good cold as they are hot, actually hubby likes them straight out of the fridge. As for freezing, I put them forzen in the microwave (I usually have 2) for like a minute and that works. It is slightly warm but not hot. If you want to pop them in the oven to warm up I would wrap them in foil and cook for 10-15 mins at 180. I would however recommend you try them cold or room temp as they are tasty that way and less fuss.

You are such a star sharing your recipes... thank you so much... giving you some reps xxx
Thank you!
