Quiche and Mango Salad

We have quite a good crop of silver beet and spinach in the veggie patch
So it's Quiche and salad for dinner tonight.

I usually make a nice nutty wholemeal pastry
but you can use whichever is your favourite

I line a quiche dish with the pastry

Then slice up some onions,
I use red ones as they are less acid I find, and sweeter

In a pan,sprinkle some soft brown sugar and a little water
and warm a little

Put in the sliced onions and saute gently until caramelised

Beat 4 eggs with about just under 300mls of cream

Grate some cheeses
I used mostly cheddar with a little parmasen 
but you can use whatever cheeses are your favourite

When the onion is cooled a little, add it to your flan

Add chopped silver beet or spinach (stalks removed)

Then sprinkle with the grated cheese

Pour the egg mixture over

Place in a med to hot oven until set and pastry cooked

Serve with your favourite salad
I used Rocket as the base,
red and yellow capsicums/peppers
tiny halved tomatoes from the garden 
and topped it with cubed mango

This Fasolia,a Greek bean dish
an optional extra

 I posted this recipe previously
but if you would like it again 
Please email me
It's really just home made baked beans, 
but more delicious than the canned kind

I hope you enjoy my little feast
lovely on a hot day hot or cold

Thank you for visiting. It's always wonderful to hear from you. Thank you for the B-day wishes and the lovely comment about the embroidered pillowcases my mother made for me.
When I posted them..... I thought about you. You are always making such pretty things. I thought you might like them and appreciate the work that went into them. So glad you saw the post.
You are a real "Martha Stewart"!! Sewing, quilting and! baking!!!
My mother would make bread while were at school.... when we got off the bus.... you could smell the bread cooling in the window from blocks away. One of my best childhood memories!
I think I am going to take a crack at it.
Will visit again soon!

You know what, this would be one of my favorite kind of meal. For whatever reason, I never get tired of quiche and the hubby likes it, too, despite what they say about real men!

I've been making a Bisquick quiche for some time now which helps cut down on calories, but there's nothing like the real thing with a pastry crust!
The mango salad is colourful and looks tasty.
