Easy quiche recipeI don’t usually post recipes but lately deciding on what to cook for dinner, let alone getting to the shops to buy the ingredients or make it, has become a chore for me. With a new baby in the house and a fussy toddler, I’m not loving food right now. That is why my mom’s recipe is a must have and is cheap, quick and easy to make. You can add a variety of fillings and I usually make a spinach and feta quiche, but this time I also added bacon and mushroom which I had in the fridge. Asparagus (tinned or fresh) is another nice filling choice.

This quiche is an easy family dinner or a lunch meal for when friends and family come round. Serve with a salad and you can also make ahead, freeze and defrost when needed. My mom bought me this Pyrex dish from Pick ‘n Pay as I didn’t have one – she’s a star!


  • 1 large cup or mug of self raising flour (depending on dish size)
  • Third cup of sunflower oil and milk added to make it to half
  • Pinch salt
  • If mixture is too dry or soft just add a bit extra of flour or oil
