Add corn and flour. Cook, stirring until thick. Combine eggs, milk, salt and curry powder. Stir rapidly into corn mixture. Add bacon. Pour into quiche dish . Bake 30 minutes or until golden. Serve immediately.
Nancy, this was a lovely/pie/tart/quiche : we really enjoyed it, liked the cracker crust, was careful not to over-season because of the salt in the crackers. liked the colour contrast of the pepper, agree that red (or a mix) would be equally good. This made a lovely dinner for us and then lunch for my DH, the curry powder was a really good secret ingredient, and I think it makes all the difference. I didnt add the bacon - I'm sure it would be great with it, but to be honest, its great without it! Thank you, Nancy, enjoyed for Consideration tag game!
My husband's assessment of this recipe is :Tasty good! I made a slight adjustment and added extra curry, as my husband really likes the flavor. Made for New Kids on the Block Tag game. :)
