Mushroom and Pepperoni Quiche

How are you? Its been sometime right? I’m in Kerala for a few weeks. I wanted to post this recipe before I left Bahrain, but it was a last minute trip, so… Btw, sorry about the site crashing in between for a day or two. Both of us were traveling and couldn’t do anything about it. Hope you had a great valentines day with your loved ones. I had a great valentines day this year with two cutiepies ;) More about it in the next post, okies?

I’ve made this quiche a number of times before, but never got a chance to take the photo. So this time, I was determined to take photos. I’ve been getting requests for quiche and pie recipes for sometime. This can be served as an appetiser or as a main dish, with some salad on the side. Usually I make it as chicken quiche, but this time I made it with mushroom. It’s been sometime I’ve posted veg recipes, so decided to make a veg filling. I’ve given the details of chicken quiche  and also the eggless version in the notes section.

I’ve been getting mails asking for veg recipes during lent season. So if you are on lent, this is a good recipe to try.

  • hai maria ,
                    wow yaar i simply love this recipe, i will defnitely try it out, i was thinking of making quiche i thot it was soo tough so didnt give a try. now looking at this feel like trying and defnitely i will try . so maria, i only have ceramic tart cases, small ones. i have large non stick tart tin. is it ok if i use ceramic one.and one more, when we make tarts, normally we put some beans or raw rice on top of dough and bake for around 5 minutes, is that needed in this case. its a doubht ….

    • Hi Shabna,

      Sorry for the delayed reply dear :(

      You can use ceramic cases if it is oven proof. About baking the tart base with dried beans, actually the original recipe in the book does that, but I didnt do that. If you want to do that way, go ahead. Hope you get to try this soon and like it too…

      Cheers

  • Thanks a lot Maria for this yummy recipe.My hubby n friends loved it.n ofcourse me too..Your tips and suggestions are truly helpful.My quiche came out so well.

  • My dearest Maria,

    Did anyone tell you that your recipies rock! Of course I am not the first one to tell you nothing but praise! I tried the mushroom quiche and it was superb! After your dal makhani this is what I tried next and I was not surprised with the results. I tried it yesterday and couldn’t wait till I could write to you. I also minced in some broccoli to make it healthy. You can add some minced garlic toofor the filling!

    May you be blessed by the Lord! Thank You

    • Hi Rhea,

      Thanks a lot for such a wonderful feedback dear! I’m really happy to know that the quiche worked well for you. Thanks for sharing your tips too :)

      Best wishes to you too..

      Take care,
      Maria

  • Maria, I love you! This turned out so well and it was so yum that I wish I could give you a hu. Thanks so much for making cooking & baking so much fun. Xxx. Deepa George

  • yup yup agree with all it was yummy!!! used turkey meat and added garlic (i lovee garlic) and a whole tomatoe, cheated a little with chicken stock powder and butter :P but soo nicee definitely going to make again!! just a questions though how thick do you roll out the dough? because i think mine turned out slightly undercooked and if baked too long was worried it will dried out….if I wanted to make a huge quiche (using all dough on a pie dish) what diameter can I use? as I think mine was a little small and the dough end up slightly thick (didn’t want to waste any of that delicious dough)

    • Thanks Nadia! Nice to know that you liked it. I roll out the dough in 1/4 – 1/2 inch thickness. If you want to use a single tin, I think 7 or 8 inch tin will do.

      Happy baking :)

      Cheers

  • Hi Maria
    I don’t have tart tins at home but not keen on buying them since such dishes are not a regular affair…….is there an alternative I can use to bake the quiche?

    I also have a suggestion to make….would like to see you try out more pasta recipes :) :)

    • Hi Ranjini,

      You can use cupcake tins if you like for this or may be cake tins which are not too deep. Hope this helps..

      I’ll try to add more pasta recipes in future :)

      Cheers
      Maria

  • Hi Maria, I love your recipes. Thanks so much!
    Ive been meaning to make this one and I have a quick question. Dont we need to blind bake the pastry first? Also, will the holes prevent it from rising ?

    Thank you!
    Khushboo

    • Hi Khushboo,

      Thank you so much :) Sorry for the delayed reply.

      I didnt blind bake these tarts, but if you want, you can do that..

      Poking the holes prevent it from rising to an extent.

      Cheers
      Maria
