Ok this quiche recipe is from a woman I knew many, many years ago. She made us this quiche once and I was blown away at how delicious it was. My mouth still waters whenever I see a pic of this quiche or remember it. The key is the pastry which has a secret ingredient plus the filling which is a heavenly mixture of prosciutto, cheese and tomato.
If you love umami flavours then you will love these Nduja and olive sausage rolls. Buying the nduja saves you a whole lot of work seasoning the mince as it is so packed full of flavour!
What is a picnic without a dip of some sort? I'm sure everyone has a hummus recipe but have you ever tried smooth hummus? It's my favourite type of hummus and it can easily be done at home thanks to one clever little trick!
I promise I'm not being overly dramatic here (okay maybe I am) but this is the most amazing bacon and egg pie. It's also perfect with a short and crumbly sour cream pastry case filled with whole boiled eggs, bacon and cheese!
I finished this list off with the easiest but eye catching tart you will make! Springtime is asparagus season and this easy prosciutto wrapped asparagus tart is an oldie but a goodie! All you need is a sheet of puff pastry, cream cheese, a bunch of asparagus and prosciutto!
So tell me Dear Reader, do you love picnics? Is there a dish that you like to bring along to a picnic?
