After a long week of baking absolutely sweet food, I thought it'll be really nice if I settle for something savoury for a change. After a few hours of contemplating what to bake next, I decided to go with quiche. I'm not exactly a pie person (chicken pie, beef pie or whatever pie for the matter), so I went on with quiche. To be really honest, I was only introduced to quiche very recently (yes, I didn't know what it was). My mum's friend (Aunty Eve) baked it during a christmas party, Salmon Quiche. I looked at it and said to myself... "salmon pie lookalike, hmmm.. how weird" Haha, i mean come on, I never actually heard of salmon pie okay. and it looked like pie anyways. But heck, she makes really good food, so I gave it a try and I loved it big time! Haha, I remember we even packed some leftovers home and I had salmon quiche for breakfast and tea for the next few days. YUM!!!
Ever since then, quiche was absolutely... delicious to me! But I must say, I went ordering different types of quiche in various restaurants and some of them were alright, but some of them were just disappointing. None of them were really as good as what I tasted in Aunty Eve's house. Its salmon quiche yo!
So I was hoping that I would make good salmon quiche to reach up to my own expectation. I went researching for good recipes for a few hours. Many recipes used ready made crust which I did not like. I rather make my food from scratch. And finally I stumbled upon this recipe where there is no need for crust at all!
CRUSTLESS SALMON QUICHE
Seriously, this was perfect! No ready made crust, nor do I need to trouble myself with making the crust for quiche! Small in size, easy to make, easy to eat!!! WORTH THE TIME AND EFFORT!
