Smoked Salmon Quiche with Dill


This recipe is from our Bed and Breakfast days. It can be part of a breakfast or luncheon. It is great and easy. Easter is coming so if you have family coming to visit….serve this. They will love you for it.


  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 2 tbsp. flour
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 cups  heavy cream
  • 1 tsp. fresh dill, chopped
  • 1/4 tsp. yellow mustard
  • freshly grated nutmeg
  • tabasco, a couple of drops
  • 6 oz. swiss or provolone cheese, chilled
  • 1 cup flaked smoked salmon (if leftover from last night dinner – great)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a skillet on medium heat, saute the butter and onions until transparent. Add the flour and stir, making a ‘sort of’ roux’.

In a bowl, beat well the eggs, cream, dill and mustard. Add a dash of grated nutmeg and tabasco, mixing well to combine. Mix together with the onion mixture.

Pour the ingredients into a buttered pie plate and slice the cheese thinly and lay over the top . Bake for 35-45 minutes until cooked through. Let cool for 6-7 minutes before slicing and serving. Add fresh fruit (if breakfast) or salad if for lunch.
