An Easy Quiche Using Spring Roll Wrappers

An Easy Quiche Using Spring Roll Wrappers

This is a quiche using spring roll wrappers for the crust instead of a pie crust. It's easy but looks like you made an extra effort.

Ingredients: enough to fill one 22 cm pie dish

Eggs
3
Spinach
1/2 bunch
Onion
1/2
Bacon
3 slices
Spring roll wrappers
2 wrappers
Milk
100 ml
Melting type sliced cheese
5 slices
Olive oil
1 tablespoon
Salt and pepper
to taste

Steps

1. Preheat the oven to 360F/180C.
2. Cut the spinach into 5 cm pieces, and the onion into 1 cm slices.
3. Cut the bacon into 1 cm pieces.
4. Heat olive oil (not listed) in a pan and stir fry the onion and bacon.
5. When the color of the onions change, add the spinach and continue stir frying. Season lightly with salt and pepper.
6. Beat eggs in a bowl. Set aside about 1 tablespoon of the beaten egg in a small bowl.
7. Grease a pie dish with olive oil (not listed). Cut the spring roll wrappers from corner to corner into triangles.
8. Line the pie dish with the wrappers so that the square corners of each triangle go in the corner. Use the beaten egg you set aside to glue the wrappers together where they overlap.
9. This is how it looks with the pie plate lined with the wrapper pieces.
10. Cut the edges of the wrapper that stick out of the plate with a knife. Chop up these cut-off bits; they'll be added to the filling later, so don't throw out.
11. Add milk and finely shredded cheese to the bowl of eggs from step 6, and season with salt and pepper.
12. Add the stir fried bacon and vegetables from step 5, and the chopped up bits of cut off spring roll wrapper.
13. Pour the mixture into the pie plate, spreading the ingredients around evenly.
14. Bake for 30 minutes in an oven and it's done.

Story Behind this Recipe

The basic recipe is a crustless quiche we have at our house that we call "western style chawanmushi" (steamed savory custard). I recently saw in a magazine a quiche using spring roll wrappers for the crust, so I transformed our family's 'western style chawanmushi' into a quiche.
