Nokkelost Quiche

Nokkelost Quiche

I am really excited for you to meet two new kids on the block!  We are now making Havarti and Nokkelost.

Our newest cheeses at Appel Farms

Nokkelost means “Key Cheese” in Norway and goes by the same name in Sweden.   It is very much like the popular Dutch Leyden.  Nokkelost is flavored with cumin, caraway, and cloves, making it perfect for a Christmas treat.  Close your eyes while you let it roll around on your tongue and visions of sugar plums will dance in your head.  It’s also one of the prettiest cheeses we have (don’t tell the others, they might get jealous).

Look for Nokkelost in select grocery store chains around the Pacific Northwest during the holidays.  Don’t worry, you don’t have to wait for Christmas to enjoy this cheese!  Nokkelost is available right now at our Cheese Shop and at Everybody’s Store.   Everybody’s Store has it available online.

We can talk about the Havarti next week, right now, let’s get baking!

Making Nokkelost Quiche

“That’s too much cheese” said nobody ever!

Nokkelost Quiche ready for the oven

Nokkelost Quiche

  • 1 unbaked pastry shell
  • 10 ounces Nokkelost, grated
  • 4 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 pound Quark
  • 4 tablespoons chives, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  •  1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 6 sliced bacon, cooked and crumbled
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Place the grated Nokkelost onto the bottom of the pastry shell.
  3. Whisk together the eggs, Quark, 3 tablespoons chives, salt and pepper.  Carefully pour over the cheese in the pastry shell.  Spread to cover all the way to the edges.
  4. Sprinkle the bacon and remaining chives over the Quark mixture.
  5. Bake on the center rack of the oven until firm, approximately 30-40 minutes.

 

A little tip: If the crust is browning too much before the filling is set, tent with foil for the last 10-15 minutes.
