Make spinach a favourite
Spinach might not be on children's top-ten list of favourite food but with some deception one can easily get this powerful veggie into one of their meals.
BASE: Pour melted butter into a 22 cm pie dish. Add flour, salt and cheese and mix ingredients together. Use your finger tips to press the dough to line the dish. Pick all over, using a fork. Bake in preheated 180 ºC oven for 10 minutes.
FILLING: Heat butter and fry onions until soft. Remove from the pan and set aside. Add bacon to the pan and fry until crisp. Drain off excess fat, then add spinach and mix well. Remove from the heat. Mix eggs, milk, cream and flour together. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Add the spinach mixture and stir well. Pour into pie crust. Sprinkle with cheese and paprika and bake in preheated 180 ºC oven for 30 minutes until golden.
Make this quiche over the weekend and then you have at least two lunchboxes covered for the coming week.
