*Hi everyone! This is a bit unusual, but fun, I think! A bit before Christmas I was given the opportunity to share one of my recipes in the new recipe section at George Wilkinson Bakeware, a British bakeware company! Their products look wonderful, I truly am considering ordering one... or three... like a tart tin... or a sandwich tin! I'm assuming that is for cakes that are "sandwiched" together... Anyway! I shared my Apple Butter Cake, which you can see on their site here, if you'd like. In exchange, I agreed to share one of their recipes here! I haven't tried this one, but it looks gorgeous. I'm just posting it as it was given to me (well, mostly :). Thank you to George Wilkinson Bakeware for this fun swap! Enjoy!
PS- If anyone tries this, I'd love to know how it turns out! *
Pepper, Leek & Stilton Quiche
A simple, classic, quiche with Stilton cheese, pepper and sweet leeks
There aren’t many dishes as impressive as a proper quiche, with crisp, flaky pastry and creamy, just-set filling.
It is one of those classic dishes with mass appeal – traditional and hard to refuse.
For the pastry:
200g plain flour, plus extra for dusting
Pinch of salt
100g butter, plus extra for greasing
For the filling:
1 red pepper sliced & deseeded
1 clove garlic crushed
1 leek finely chopped
1 tbs oil
4 oz Stilton crumbled
2 tbs Greek yogurt
To make the pastry, sift the flour and salt into a large bowl. Rub in butter until you have a soft breadcrumb texture.
Add 2 tbsp of cold water to form dough. Leave this to rest for 30 minutes.
Lightly grease your George Wilkinson Quiche Tin with butter and then roll out the pastry on a floured surface – use this to line your quiche tin. Leave this to rest for 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 190°C/375°F, Gas Mark 5. Line the bottom of the pastry case with baking parchment, and fill with baking beans.
Place on your Place on your George Wilkinson bakeware and bake for 15-20 minutes.
Remove the baking beans and parchment or foil, and return to the oven to bake for a further 5 minutes. Set aside.
Reduce the oven temperature to 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4.
Fry the leek, pepper and garlic in oil until softened, allow to cool and then place in pastry case.
Blend yogurt, egg and half Stilton until smooth and creamy. Pour over the peppers and leeks.
