READY IN: 50mins


  • 1
    sheet shortcrust pastry, to line a 9 inch quiche dish
  • 3
    slices ham (about 120g)
  • 1
    garlic clove, crushed
  • 1
    tablespoon olive oil
  • 1
    cup Baby Spinach, loosely packed and coarsely chopped
  • 2
    tablespoons flour
  • 1 12
    cups milk
  • 3
    eggs, lightly beaten
  • 12
    cup shredded cheese (whatever type you like, I use cheddar)
  • 1
    teaspoon paprika
  • salt and pepper


  • Preheat oven to 230°C.
  • Chop shallots and ham, and sauté in olive oil with garlic. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
  • In a bowl mix the flour with a little milk until a smooth paste forms. Add rest of milk, eggs, paprika, salt and pepper.
  • To the milk mixture, add the sautéed shallots and ham, cheese and spinach. Mix well.
  • Prick the base of the pastry with a fork and gently pour in the filling mixture. Spread out evenly.
  • Bake for 30 minutes. If necessary, cover with foil for the last 10 minutes to prevent over-browning.
  • Remove from oven and leave for 5 minutes before serving.
