Birthday quiche!

35 quiche. Only 1 quiche was sacrificed to quality control. At my work, it’s tradition to organise something for a morning tea shout or lunch shout for your birthday. The last 4 years I have just bought food from the local bakery to share, but this year I decided make something. We don’t have much of a kitchen at work so it really had to be something that could be served cold or could be microwaved. I’m not much of a baker, but I can make a pretty mean quiche. I made 36 of these quiche filled with eggs, cheese, tomato, broccoli and onion. They took much longer than I anticipated due to only 1 muffin tin. If I were to do this again, I’d buy or borrow some more tins. Everyone at work seemed to enjoy them with most scoffing back 2 quiche. Based on my recipe here.

Wash the flounder and slice a large X on both sides of the fish with a sharp knife. Tear off a piece of foil large enough to fit the fish on and to wrap up. Lay this on a large shallow roasting dish.
