Favourite flans.

What's your favourite flan or maybe you call it a quiche?

I often make a cheese and tomato flan but really should try something different as it's getting boring now and as I don't really like the taste or the smell of goats cheese so any containing that I wouldn't make, well I might make it for someone else but I wouldn't eat it.
I think pies are more versatile but the OH isn't keen on too much pastry.

Cheese and leek flan is wonderful as a warming winter comforter. I use a Cranks recipe.

One of my favourites is Delia's Thick Onion Tart. The title is a bit off putting in my opinion, but if you like onions, this is really super.

Or try this one from BBC Good Food. I can't give the link here, but try searching for Leek, mushroom & Gruyère quiche for a no meat version.

I make a cheese and spinach flan with cream cheese, a little finely chopped raw onion, cooked chopped spinach, eggs and some parmesan cheese. I also make individual ones in patty tins using puff or flaky pastry, like savoury Maids of Honour. Courgettes can be used instead of spinach.

Quiches


I do like a quiche.

I make quiche lorraine's. using either bacon, lardons, or ham.

I really like mixed roasted veg, which can be anything from asparagus, tomatoes, aubergine, courgette, 2 or 3 different coloured peppers, mushrooms, with a bit of gruyere too.

Onion quiche is delicious.

there is a lot too choose from but they are my 3 favs.

This has to be my all time favourite, Delias "Smoked Salmon Tart"

the addition of the Parmesan is so tasty.

Flans,tarts & quiches

They all sound mouth-wateringly delicious .
Like the sound of the leek ones so looked up the Cranks and the Goodfood recipes, I will give those a try.
Sometimes I ring the changes and make a wholemeal pastry.
I once made a flan using dairylea cheese.

Leek quiche

Honey ,I made the leek and mushroom quiche today it was really good,I didn't have gruyere cheese so used mature cheddar and Parmesan . I made it in a 9in flan tin so got loads left over , do you think it will freeze ok? If not we will be eating it all week.

I would try freezing it Violet. I really can't remember if I've frozen it to be honest. Mushrooms don't freeze ever so well... but okay. I'd eat some and freeze the rest. You can buy grated gruyere and it makes it very easy and I do love gruyere.

Thanks for that Honey I will freeze a couple of slices and eat the rest cold, the OH said it was really nice I think the addition of the cream helps it make it extra special.
Can I ask you please if you have the time to put that leek and sausage meat flan recipe in your profile I would like to try that.

When I returned to this thread I realised I'd not done it yet. I'd hoped it was in a Word document that I could just copy and paste... but I've remembered this is a VERY old recipe that I acquired back in the early 70's and I will have to go a hunting. I think it's in the red file (one of many!) and so shouldn't be a problem. I'll have a look later and put it in my profile. This is a very different type of flan... very popular with the men because of the meat content... it's firmer than the more eggy ones. But very tasty.

Country Sausage Flan

Panicked a bit... it was in the green file not the red one!

Had to smile at some of the instructions... Remove the rind from the bacon!! It's a long time since I've done that.

Country sausage flan

That's so kind of you Honey to do all of that so late in the evening , I will give that one a try soon.
I think we sometimes forget the recipes we made in the olden days and many were very tasty , thanks again :0)
