Today we celebrate the most typical Swedish tradition of all; Midsummer. Family and friends gather to celebrate the beginning of summer with a never ending lunch party that involves flowers in your hair, dancing, singing and drinking flavored schnapps.
It’s normal to bring food to the party and we therefore want to share a recipe on a super tasty quiche made of cheese. This is a dish perfect for any occasion, not just midsummer.
3 dl flour (choose any type of flour you like)
125 g butter
5 tsp salt (preferably Himalayan)
300g grated Västerbotten Cheese (a tradional Swedish cheese, or other type of cheese)
2,5 dl cream
1 dl milk (or soy or rice milk)
Salt & pepper
Use a large bowl and mix the flour, salt and butter. Add the egg and mix until you have a nice and firm dough. Use a pie dish (approx. 20-25 cm in diameter) and press the mix out, until it has covered everything. Place it in the fridge and let it cool for 30 minutes before you pre-bake it in the oven for about 10-15 minutes on 200°C.
Whisk together the eggs, milk and cream and gradually add the grated cheese, salt and pepper. Then pour the filling into the pie crust and bake in the oven for 25–30 minutes (at the bottom) until it’s a bit golden. Garnish with some fresh herbs and it’s ready to be served.
