New potato, spring onion & cheddar quiche is a paid collaborative post with Tesco Jersey Royal Potatoes. There is something amazing about the Jersey Royal Potato season, to me, they are the cream of new potatoes and as the daughter in law of a farmer, I understand the importance of eating seasonally. Tesco Jersey Royals are delicious, earthy and nutty and one of the traditional foodie signals that Spring has arrived. They are available only between April to July.
Tesco Jersey Royals are much more than just a side dish for us, so I decided to make them centre of the show with this retro quiche which is the perfect centerpiece of a meal and also great for vegetarians.
I have used premade shortcrust pastry here to show just how easy it is and also that there is nothing wrong with taking shortcuts or you can even leave out the pastry altogether and make a crustless quiche – just make sure you line your tray.
This quiche is perfect warm of cold and makes a great lunchbox or picnic food.
This is one of those good recipes that is all about quality home cooking that everyone can enjoy and anyone can make.
New Potato, Spring Onion and Cheddar Quiche
For the Filling
- 250 grams Jersey Royal New Potatoes halved, or quartered if large
- 2 bunches Spring Onions Slied
- 200 grams Cheddar Cheese Grated
- 4 Eggs
- 150 ml Double Cream
- 100 ml Milk
Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface and line a deep 12-inch tart tin. Cover with baking parchment and fill with baking beans (or rice if you don’t have baking beans). Cook for 20 mins, then remove the paper and beans and cook for 5-10 mins more until the tart case is pale
Turn down the oven to 160C/140C fan/gas 2. Position the potatoes then spring onions and cheddar on the pastry case.
Whisk together the eggs, milk and cream, then season and pour over the pastry. Sprinkle a handful of spring onions on the top and pop on the middle shelf of the oven.
Cook for 40-45 mins or until just set. Remove, cool on a wire rack then serve.
If you are going to eat this warm then do allow it to stand for 10 minutes. It is a big hit in my house even with the meat eaters.
It is also safe to freeze and you can reheat it.
I would love to know if you try our New potato, spring onion & cheddar quiche and you can get your Jersey Royal Potatoes from Tesco stores. I am all for bringing back quiche in all its retro and rustic glory.
