I have been wanting to post this recipe for ages. It is a quiche I created for a beer themed potluck. Only I cooked it for the wrong day, so I ended up with a lot of quiche….
Well it was lucky for me, because it turned out pretty delicious, if I can say so myself.
I am thinking this recipe would be great to serve while watching football too!
- 9 oz flour
- 4 oz. butter
- 2 tbsp beer (from the bottle used for the filling)
- 1 bottle beer (I recommend a lager style)
- 1 tbsp flour (I used a mix of spelt and AP you can use whatever you prefer)
- 1 tbsp butter
- 1 egg
- 4-5 roasted pepper
- 3-6 jalapenos
- Cubed cheese
- Mix the flour with the salt and the beer. Cut in the butter and form into a pliable dough, adding more beer if necessary.
- Form in a brick, wrap and chill in the fridge.
- Prepare a "bechamel" by melting the butter in a pot. When the butter is melted add the flour and form a roux. Dilute the roux with the beer and keep stirring on the heat until it thickens up. Take off the heat and let it cool down.
- Dice the peppers, jalapenos and the cheese.
- Roll out the dough into a thin layer and place in a oven pan or cookie sheet. Scatter the diced pepper, jalapenos and cheese on top of the dough.
- Add an egg to the "bechamel" and pour over the quiche.
- Fold in the dough to create a border.
- Bake at 375F for 40 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is set.
