Crab & Swiss Quiche
Since now the kids are at home, my access to the computer is a bit limited. The laptop is being conquered by Fatin and the pc by Syahmi...poor mama! So whatever I want to do, I have to do it quickly in the morning before they wake up!

So to cut short, for today's entry, I'll just put this quiche recipe that I've made quite sometime back. Got this idea from Zack's page. Made half the recipe just to taste. It was nice and very easy to do. Once out of the oven, 2/3 was gone, the work of me and the kids! Zack, thank you for discovering the recipe and sharing with us...and oh....sorry Zack, mama just 'copy and paste' the recipe from your site, as I am running out of time...the kids will be up soon. I do really hope you won't mind okay....

Crab & Swiss Quiche

Pie Crust

250 g all-purpose flour
180 g shortening ( I used 50g margarine & 130g shortening sbb I ran out of shortening )
20 g white sugar
8 g salt
1/2 egg
60 ml water

How to Make :
1. In a large mixing bowl, combine all-purpose flour, shortening, sugar, and salt. Blend together with a pastry cutter until crumbly.
2. In a small bowl, mix egg with water. Blend into flour mixture. Chill in refrigerator until ready to use. The pie crust will be slighlty soft due to the amount of shortening used in the recipe, but don't worry..the crust will turn out perfect. Remember to really chill it sebelum guna..kalau tak nanti masa roll crustnye the dough will stick to your rolling pin )

Crab & Swiss Quiche

2 egg, lightly beaten
120 ml milk
120 ml mayonnaise
3 g cornstarch
225 g imitation crab meat, flaked
160 g shredded Swiss cheese ( I used mozzarella & cheddar )
*fresh dill
*salt & black pepper ( Kalau guna mozzarella cheese, the filling tends to be a wee bit sweet )
*cayenne pepper or 2-3 drops of tobasco
1 unbaked pie crust

How to Make :
1. In a medium bowl, mix together eggs, milk, mayonnaise and cornstarch. Mix in the imitation crab and Swiss cheese. Add the *optional ingredients if you want to give the quiche an extra kick. I like mine with a tinge of spiciness Pour into pie shell.
2. Bake in preheated oven ( 180 Degress C ) until a knife inserted into center of the quiche comes out clean, about 30 to 40 minutes.
3. Serve warm with your favourite sauce - chilli sauce etc. I like having them with a basic Basil&Garlic sauce.

What I did :
1. I used mozarella and cheedar cheese too
2. Didn't put fresh dill...I don't have any at home..
3. Didn't put cayenne pepper ~ not available. Instead I put a dash of paprika.
4. I sauted 1 onion (diced) to mix in the filling.
5. I crushed a bit of black peppercorns.
