Salmon & Goat Cheese Quiche

Ah yes, more salmon! This time it is the cold-smoked salmon baked in a quiche with goat cheese, fresh chives and dill.

Fresh sniped dill added to the custard.

Pour the herbed mixture of eggs and cream over the goat cheese and salmon layered in the crust.

I use my Le Creuset Enameled Cast-Iron Tarte Tatin pan for making quiche as well as tarte tatin. This is a great pan!

My ratio for quiche custard is:

  • 5 whole large eggs
  • 2 1/2 cups of warm light cream
  • 1 T flour
  • salt and pepper
I beat this with an electric hand mixer.
Bake at 350 for about 1 hour (maybe a little longer).

Uh, oops. How did that get in here?

I’m keeping no secrets from you: I used Trader Joe’s Baking Spray with Flour and Pillsbury Pie Crust 🙂

P.S. Happy Pi Day! 3.14.2008

My egg pie is a tribute to this mysterious and most important mathematical constant known as pi: 3.141592653589793238462643383279502884197169399375105820974944592307816406286208998628034825342117067982148086513282306647093844609550582231725359408128481117450284102701938521105559644622948954930381964428810975665933446128475648233786783165271201909145648566923460348610454326648213393607260249141273724587006606315588174881520920962829254091715364367892590360011330530548204665213841469…it’s an irrational and transcendental number that never terminates…

  1. i’m on a salmon kick, too! just bought some. now i’m going to have to figure some buttery crust and custard into the mix!

  2. Hi Maryann – yes, again, and then again to demonstrate the use of pi in the next post (and I mention you, too)!

    Hi Pinknest – looking forward to seeing your salmon creations.

    Hi Sylvia – thanks. Are you using yours for anything besides Tarte Tatin?

  3. I want that pan! If I had it, I’d show it off too! As far as the numbers go… way over my head!!!! I’m definately NOT a math person! But admire those who are.

  4. Oh, how divine! Your quiche looks beautiful and delicious. And I MUST get one of those pans! (Love all the Pi data, too.) 😉

  5. HI Nina – Likewise!

    Hi Simona – the pan has such a specialized name, for Tarte Tatin, you think it might be frivolous to get it just for that. But it fabulous for all sorts of things, including quiche!

    Hi Marie -knowing the circumference of the beautiful Le Creuset pan to be 29.84 inches is not particularly useful to the cook!

    Hi Lisa – highly recommending the pan. Pi is fun!

  6. Hi Laurie- thanks on the quiche, it is one of my favorite things to make. I think up all sorts of combinations. but my absolute favorite is brie and toasted almond quiche.

    I don’t dream in numbers, but for some strange reason, I find them fun. Go FIGURE! ha!
