Easter quiche
Earthy mushrooms and spring onions bring together this rich Gruyere cheese filled quiche.

1 x short crust pastry, thawed

All-purpose flour, for surface

2 tbsp unsalted butter

3 spring onions, thinly sliced

12 to 15 mixed mushrooms, halved

175ml whole milk

235ml double cream

1 tsp coarse salt

½ tsp freshly ground pepper

3 large eggs

100g finely grated Gruyere cheese

Roll the short crust pastry on a lightly floured surface.

Fit the pastry into a tart tin with a removable bottom; trim the pastry flush with rim.

Prick the bottom all over with a fork.

Preheat the oven to 190°C / 375°F / Gas mark 5.

Bake until edges turn gold. Remove the parchment and bake until crust is golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes.

Let cool on a wire rack.

Reduce oven temperature to 180°C / 350°F / Gas mark 4.

Melt the butter in a medium pan over medium heat until foamy.

Add the spring onions and cook, stirring, for 1 minute.

Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring often for 2 minutes.

Stir in milk and cream and bring to a simmer.

Transfer to a medium bowl, let cool to room temperature then stir in salt and pepper.

Place the crust on rimmed a baking tray.

Whisk the eggs in a medium bowl and stir in the mushroom mixture.

Add the cheese and fold in.

Pour the mixture into the crust.

Bake until golden and puffed, 20-25 minutes.

Let cool slightly, serve warm or at room temperature.
