Yes, I meant quichata. This is my version of a quiche crossed with a frittata, including dough and super fluffy eggs. Bonus, I baked it in a Dutch oven. With just a few delicious ingredients, you can make yourself a quichata too!
For the Dough:
1 Large Egg
2 1/2 Tbsp Ice Water
1 1/2 Cup Flour
8 Tbsp Butter, Cubed
For the Filling:
4 – 5 Eggs
1/4 – 1/2 Cup Cheese
1 Cup Sliced Swish Chard Leaves
1 Tbsp Garlic
1/2 an Onion – I used red and yellow onions
1 Serrano Chili – for spice
Up to 1lb Chorizo or Sausage
Olive Oil – for frying
What To Do:
- First in a small bowl, whisk together the egg and ice water. Set aside.
- In a food processor bowl, add the flour and salt. Pulse briefly until mixed. Add in the cubed butter pieces and pulse until the mixture is coarse. Add in the egg/ice-water mixture. Pulse again until a dough forms.
- Transfer the dough onto a lightly-floured board and roll out the crust so it fits in your Dutch oven. Slightly pat the dough into place, and if you want, even the top with a knife. I left mine as is.
- Add some of your cheese to the bottom.
- Heat a pan of olive oil, and toss in your garlic. 30ish seconds after, add the Swiss chard, and cook until tender. About 1 – 2 minutes. Evenly distribute into your quiche.
- In the same pan, sauté the onions and Serrano chili until tender, then distribute onto your quiche.
- In the same pan, cook your chorizo until done. Add some more of your cheese last minute, then, again, evenly distribute onto your quiche.
- Top with the rest of your cheese.
- In a separate bowl, mix all your eggs with an electric mixer until light and fluffy, then completely cover your quiche.
- Cover your Dutch oven with the lid, and cook for 20 minutes.
Wow! That was delicious, we ate half a quiche between the two of us 😮
