    About this recipe: One of my all time favourites! My mother got this recipe from her friend. It's a make ahead recipe, to be frozen and used later. My mother used to make mass quantities and take them out whenever she needed for an easy meal or starter. She also made it with single cream instead of milk.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 8 

    • 150g grated Gruyere cheese
    • 4 teaspoons flour
    • 75g cooked ham, diced
    • 3 eggs
    • 250ml milk
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon mustard powder
    • 1 (23cm) unbaked pastry case
    • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley, for garnish
    • 2 tablespoons chopped roasted red peppers, garnish

    Method
    Prep:20min  ›  Cook:1hr  ›  Ready in:1hr20min 

    1. In medium bowl, toss 4 teaspoons flour with the grated cheese. Sprinkle mixture into the pastry case. On top of cheese, sprinkle diced ham.
    2. In medium bowl, combine eggs, milk or cream, and then add salt and mustard powder. Beat until smooth and pour over cheese and ham.
    3. Put piece of cling film large enough to overlap sides over top of quiche, then a piece of foil, and seal well around the edges. (plastic keeps the foil from sticking to the food). Place prepared quiche in freezer.
    4. When ready to prepare, preheat oven to 200 C / Gas 6. Remove foil and cling film. Put foil around edge of crust to protect it.
    5. Bake in the preheated oven for 60 minutes, or until filling is set and pastry is golden brown. Garnish with parsley and roasted red pepper if desired
