Day 7 - Butternut Squash, Sage & Brie Quiche

Move over Nigella, Bee Rawlinson is the new Domestic Goddess!
The recipe called them butternut squash, sage and Brie Muffins, but I cooked it in a quiche dish and sliced it like nice little quiche portion to serve as part of our Sunday tea. Even the non Low carber's enjoyed it.
You can find the full recipe in the Neris & India's Idiot Proof Diet Cookbook or find the basic recipe here all you have to add is some small diced butternut squash, which you have fried in butter (with a little oil added to stop it burning) until tender , sprinkle with sage. Let it cool for a while then add diced brie, pour over egg mixture and cook at 180c for 30 minutes.
As you can see in the photo, my squash sank to the bottom of the quiche because I added the cheese while the squash was still too hot and it melted and well, I found it difficult to stir in the egg mixture as it has welded to the bottom of the dish. Next time I'll let it cool, then add the egg mixture, give it a stir THEN add the cheese before putting in the oven.
This was just as nice cold as it was hot!
