Västerbotten cheese quiche

A cheese quiche made with the Swedish Västerbotten cheese is a given with crayfish. This recipe is from a Swedish blog called Kryddburken and it was nice, but next time I think I will stick to my own quiche dough recipe so will add it to the recipe.


Västerbotten cheese quiche, 6 portions

My quiche dough recipe:

120 g softened butter

300 ml plain flour

1 eggyolk


250 g grated Västerbotten cheese (or a sharp cheddar will do)

2 egg yolks

2 eggs

200 ml cream


Mix the ingredients together for the dough and press it out in a quiche dish. Use a fork to pierce the dough all over. Pre-bake the dough for 10 mins at 175 C.

Mix the grated cheese with the cream, eggs and yolks, pour into the quiche shell and bake for another 20 mins.

If you serve it lukewarm or cold decorate it with caviar, lemon, chopped red onions and creme fraiche. Enjoy!
