My Mom’s Salmon Quiche with Cheat Crust

This one is perfect for a quick weekend lunch or a bring-and-share.  My mom made it for us as kids and it’s still a favourite 🙂 Mom's Salmon Quiche with Cheat Crust


Cheat crust

  • 1/2 packet of Provita’s or other savoury biscuits you have in the cupboard
  • 3 generous tbsp butter
  • Salt and pepper
  • Dash of mixed or Italian herbs


  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 tbsp flour
  • 200ml milk
  • 200ml cream or creme freche
  • 1 generous handful finely chopped parsley
  • 1 tin salmon (approx 420g) drained and roughly cut up
  • 1 cup grated cheese
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 5 ml Italian or mixed herbs
  • 30 ml chutney
  • 10 ml Dijon mustard
  • pinch of cayenne pepper
  • pinch of paprika
  • 3- 5 ml nutmeg

This is what you do

  1. Crush the biscuits in a plastic kitchen bag until fine (my 1L olive oil bottle works).
  2. Melt the crust’s butter until liquid.
  3. Mix and compress the butter, biscuits, salt & pepper and herbs in the base of a medium sized pie dish.
  4. Oven on 180 Degrees Celsius. Fry the onion until brown. Add butter and flour until it forms a paste.
  5. Add the milk and cream and stir with a balloon whisk on medium heat until the mixture becomes thicker.
  6. Add all the rest of the ingredients and mix except the eggs a little bit of cheese.
  7. Gently add the eggs so that they don’t solidify and mix thoroughly
  8. Pour the mixture on top of the crust and sprinkle the rest of the cheese and some herbs and paprika.
  9. Bake for 40 mins until the centre is baked
  10. Serve with bread rolls and a salad
