Sasko Tuna Quiche


A while back I posted a recipe for a Sasko pie crust that dated back to 1985, well know I have a filling for that pie crust that dates back to the same here.

Of course I adapted the recipe to move with the times because back then they were not heavy on certain flavours.

My mum always told me never to mix fish and milk together otherwise I would get white spots on my face, but seeing as this was my granny’s recipe I put my trust in her to not give me white spots to show the world that I did not listen to my mother.

The dish itself was delicious and the pastry so warm and buttery.

Of course I had a little accident and some leakage occurred, because I put the quiche pan directly onto the oven rack and not in a baking sheet, again in my defence, my mother always told me not to put on a baking sheet as this disrupts the heat distribution.

But after having a smokey smell in the house throughout the course of the baking time, and after posting about my leakage on facebook, people came back and replied to use a baking sheet, when I mentioned this to my mum, she somehow can’t remember mentioning DO NOT PUT ON A BAKING SHEET TO ME… how convenient if you ask me.
