A day of flour and cheese

So yesterday we are headed over to the gorgeous Fae's for what I am told is an annual party. I have decided to make three things to take:

Pizza balls


Blue cheese twists

For Quiche all you need is

Plain Flour
Hard Margarine
Three Eggs
A block of cheese
A splash of milk
and if you want a type of cooked meat (Ham or Salami we use)

1. Take 8oz Plain flour, 2oz Margarine and 2oz Lard and rub them together until they look like bread crumbs.
2. Add four tablespoons of water and mix until it forms a dough, place this onto a floured surface and roll out until about 1cm thick.
3. In an 8 inch crinkled pie dish place the dough and lightly press into all the edges. Cut off the excess dough from round the edges.
4. In a bowl crack open the three eggs and whisk until light, add a splash of milk (about 2 floz) and the grated cheese and mix together. You should still be able to see the cheese which has been grated but don't worry this will melt in the oven.
5. Pour the mixture on to of the pie dish and place into a pre heated oven (200oC or gas 6) for 20 - 30 mins
6. When the Quiche is golden brown on top remove from the oven and leave to cool for a few moments before serving.

We usually have it with new potatoes and veg.

You can also split this recipe into small ramekins which look amazing and can be ideal cold for a picnic.

Today I also made a few jam tarts with the left over pastry, pizza balls and Blue cheese twists.
