  • Tasty, but crumbly!  It

    Tasty, but crumbly! 

    It cooked beautifully but was difficult to cut - solid base, and very crumbly corn! Next time, we might add more egg (to hold it together), and some vegetables for a little more variety.

    I've made this a few times - and it's now a family favourite. So quick and easy to do - and delicious! I haven't had a lot of success with quiches before but the TM pastry is so easy and reliable, and the sour cream just adds another dimension. I usually use 1-2 cobs of corn - but it depends on the size of the cobs. Great way of using up Christmas ham too!
