Quiche Lorraine with Slow Cooked Pulled Gammon

Flan, puff pastry, egg and ham,

I have been using my slow cooker more and more lately and recently came across “The Best Slow Cooker Gammon Recipe” over on This Mummy which is run by the lovely Laurenne. The whole family are completely addicted to this quick and simple recipe which you serve as pulled gammon. The best thing about it is that there is always plenty of leftover gammon and so my Quiche Lorraine is the perfect dish to use some of it up! If you don’t happen to have any pulled gammon then of course you can just use chopped up ham like I’d been doing up until now! I do however implore you to try out Laurenne’s recipe as it’s quite the simplest gammon recipe you could ever find. I’ve been using Value gammon which costs around £3.75 and when you can get 2 main meals plus sandwiches out of it I think this is a really great way of saving money on your food bills.

Flan, puff pastry, egg and ham,

Puff pastry sheet is layed in tin, trimmed and filled.

I’m not a fan of fuss and fiddle so this Quiche Lorraine recipe simply uses a sheet of puff pastry which you roll out still attached to its plastic backing (just to make it slightly wider to fit the tin). Then the pastry is simply popped in the tin and the edges are trimmed and folded down over the filling for a really quick and easy dinner.

The puff pastry edges are then folded in on the filling.

If you like the look of this quiche you might also like my Salmon, Courgette and Shallot Quiche and my Croquiches which are ideal for picnics or packed lunches!

As this dish is so frugal using leftover gammon I’m entering it into Credit Crunch Munch which is run by myself and Helen of Fuss Free Flavours and being run this month by Alex over at Gingey Bites. I am also entering the Family Foodies challenge which is run by Vanesther of Bangers & Mash (current host) and Lou of Eat Your Veg where the theme is cheap and cheerful.

    Looks delicious, great use of leftover gammon, and I love the idea of a puff pastry quiche.

  15. Paul Wilson

    Looks a lot less faff that the usual quiche method.

  16. Carolyn Clapham

    I still haven’t got round to making this, but it sounds so tasty and simple that it’s only a matter of time.


    Yum! Have to admit I have never made one…… really should though I do love quiche and salad especially in summer!

    1. Camilla

      It’s so simple you simply must:-)

  18. Miss. Lucinda Fountain

    I love Quiche lorraine – it is a true tasty classic, and your simple-to-use recipie is fantastic! I also love the use of puff pastry as well, so to make it a ‘lighter’ dish and idea for summer with a salad.

    I shall be printing off your fantastic recipie for my cookbook.

    1. Camilla

      Thank you – glad you like it;-)

  19. Vanesther - Bangers & Mash

    I love this kind of quiche and am a huge fan of ready-made puff pastry – super easy and super tasty! And such a perfect cheap and cheerful recipe for this month’s Family Foodies challenge. Thanks so much for sharing, Camilla 🙂

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Vanesther:-)

  20. Fish Fingers for tea

    You’ve got to love ready rolled puff pastry! Your quiche sounds lovely Camilla. We use the value gammon a lot and for the amount of meals you can get out of it they are a complete bargain!

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Sian;-) Yes Value Gammon has become a regular ingredient here, so versatile:-)

  21. Carolyn Clapham

    This quiche looks and sounds lovely. I can’t wait to try it. 🙂

    1. Camilla

      Thank you Carolyn – hope you enjoy it:-)

  22. What Kate Baker

    That’s sure to become a family favourite Camilla and I love the twist of using not just any old ham but fabulous pulled slow cooked gammon!

    1. Camilla

      Thanks, I’ve been making this for ages but had to post it with this new slow cooked gammon version:-)

  23. Maya Russell

    It looks great! Mmm.
    Funny that whenever I see the word ‘pulled’ in a recipe, I have visions of people in the kitchen having a tug-of-war with a joint of meat!

  24. Janice

    Great idea to use a puff pastry sheet, they are super versatile, love them.

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Janice, I far prefer them to Shortcrust which can be a bit temperamental!

  25. Ursula Hunt

    Looks like a great quiche

    1. Camilla

      Thank you Ursula:-)
