    I have NEVER EVER EVER in my life made anything....and Im not joking either. I make muffins out of a packet thats about it. Well this weekend I was in the recipe area and found quiche and got a flee up my booty.
    So went out and got all my fixings, sausage, mushrooms, onion, cheese and my own duck eggs. It will be ready in 10 mins.

    Hopefully my DH wont fall down dead when he gets home to eat it.

    I make lots of quiche, and ever since I got ducks & duck eggs that's all I use in my recipe. My quiches are more like a rich egg pie, and now by using duck eggs I don't even have to add any additional cream or milk.

    First I make a crust:
    1 C + 2 T flour
    1/2 t salt
    1/3 C oil (I use extra-light tasting olive)
    2 T cold water

    Then I place a layer of sliced or chopped raw carrots across the bottom

    Next I thaw about 10 ounces or so of frozen chopped spinach (one whole box or part of a bag) and squeeze out the water
    Put that in a bowl and add about a dozen duck eggs and a couple tablespoons of seasoned salt (I like Spike original http://www.modernfearn.com/index_files/Page390.htm)

    I
    whip it all together with a big fork and pour it into the crust over the carrots

    Put foil around the crust to keep it from burning and bake at 350 for about 40 minutes, until it's set well. Then I put about 8 ounces of cheese, usually cheddar or colby-jack, on the top and put it back in the oven for another few minutes until it melts.

    This is good with baked or roasted potatoes cooked in the same oven.

    I hope your duck-egg quiche is deeeeeelicious!

    Be sure to take it out of the oven before the middle is totally set - not liquid still, but not totally set (if that makes sense). Then let it rest for a few minutes and it will finish cooking. If you wait for it to be totally cooked in the middle the whole thing will be rubbery. At least that's what I've found.

    Yum! Duck egg quiche! Mmmmm....

    If only they knew how much effort and love goes into baking something so beautiful and tasty, eh! It really does look lovely, and anybody who saw it would think you had been baking quiches for years and years. I am feeling really hungry now!

    Well done you!! [​IMG] [​IMG]
