No Fail Quiche

Oh, I am a real pastry lover.  I swear you could put anything in a crust and I would be all over it like a rash. I come by that love honestly.  Everyone in my family is the same.  Crust crazy!

Since being diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes several years ago however, I have been trying my hardest to avoid things like pastry. Oh, I do cook them for Todd, and trust me, it is really hard to have things like that in the house.  I have become an expert at cutting the quantities of recipes down so that I only make a few of most things. That way Todd doesn't have to suffer and I don't have to be overly tempted.  Its a fine line!
This No Fail Quiche makes the perfect quick supper dish, and if you use whole wheat self raising flour and low fat cheese and milk, is quite diabetic friendly.  You can load it with lots of vegetables or just a few vegetables.  You can use ham instead of bacon . . .
You can raid your fridge and get rid of all the bits and bobs that are laying about waiting to get used up.  Peppers, sweet corn, broccoli, cauliflower, cooked carrots, sprouts, etc. Just throw in whatever you have, making sure of course that the flavours go together.
Today I used mushrooms, onion, two rashers of bacon, some romanesco cauliflower and grainy mustard along with low fat cheddar and milk.  You can use chutney or pesto instead of the mustard. It is a very forgiving recipe, that turns out perfectly every time I make it.  A bit of salad on the side and dinner is served!  Leftovers heat up very nicely the next day also.
