Grandma Bush's self crusting quiche

This recipe is a must have for every country house, it is so easy and quick. My grandmother must have made thousands of these over the years and now it is regularly used in our house too. It's a great way of using up left overs or quickly thrown together with a salad to feed unexpected lunch guests. Gran used to say that "each quiche is always the same only different" you can put just about anything into this recipe and it will still be just as good- so get creative

  •  1 Cup Milk
  •  1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 Cup spinach
  • 1 cup grated cheese
  • 1 onion
  • 1 clove garlic
  • pinch salt
  • 3-5 eggs
  • butter to grease dish
Beat eggs with salt, milk, flour and Baking powder in a bowl. Add veges and cheese. Stir to combine. Pour into buttered quiche dish and bake at 200 degrees Celsius for 25-30 mins.
This recipe is great for using up left overs from the fridge so it can become more of a flan style dish if you want. I also make these and freeze them in slices for farm lunch boxes. Try out some of these different combinations;
  • salmon and cream cheese
  • mixed roast veges- pumpkin, kumara, potato
  • spinach, pine-nuts and shredded chicken
  • ham left over from Christmas is great
  • bacon and mushrooms
 Thanks gran xx A


  1. This was awesome and fast and easy to make!

  2. how much does this serve?

  3. Hi thanks for the question.
    This would easily serve 4 but if you team it with a salad/side it will slice into 6 decent sized pieces

  4. Hi I just made this to take to a church supper and it was very popular. Thanks for sharing your recipe. I didn't have spinach so used mixed vegetables.

  5. I used asparagus and it was delicious. Easy recipe. Will definitely make it again
