Cheddar...

Let's start with a video:


Cheddar that relatively hard, pale yellow to off-white (unless artificially colored), and sometimes sharp tasting cheese has long history. Originating in the English village of Cheddar in Somerset, Cheddar has been produced since at least the 12th century. A pipe roll of King Henry II from 1170 records the purchase of 4,640 kg. Romans may have brought the recipe to Britain from the Cantal region of France.

Nowadays it is still very popular in the UK and widely know as the cheese that melts on your regular cheeseburger.


Now I had Cheddar in my fridge and ham and puff pastry so it was obvious to make a "Quiche with chicory, ham and cheddar" 

Of course my buddy Jeroen helped me with the perfect recipe. The recipe is in Dutch (just watch the video then or watch this one here for a somewhat stripped down version; ham & cheese only) but all you really need take special care about is these 3 things:

Quiche with Cheddar
-Preheat the puff pastry in a quiche dish some 15 minutes in a preheated oven. (180°C.)
-The vegetables should not be moist (but also not chewy). If your chicory is too wet, the quiche will become soggy in the baking process.
-Finally divide the cream & egg mixture (custard) equal over the entire surface of the quiche.

Bon Appétit!
