How to make Old Fashioned Corned Beef Flan?

Found 19th Apr 2008
Many years ago my mum used to make a Quiche using corned beef and either condensed mushroom soup or tinned creamed mushrooms (the type you put in Vol-o-vents). My husband keeps reminding me of the fact it was his favourite tea when we were "courting". Question is does anyone have a recipe as my Mum (74 Years old now!) can't remember and I didn't take much notice then. All I know is that it looked a disgusting mixture before cooked but tasted delicious when baked. I have seen recipes with cottage cheese and the Slimming World one but don't think they are the ones. Help anyone?

they're not exactly probably what your mum used to make, but if you make it a few times, you will then be able to get the "feel" for the liquidity of the mixture and you can then start to add in / substitute the tinned stuff and adapt the recipe to get as close as you can to your mum's.

the second one probably has more scope for manoeuvre - you could try swapping the sliced mushrooms and the 1 1/4 cup of milk for some condensed mushroom soup or tinned creamed mushrooms.

hope i've been of some help!

Not too sure if exactly what I think we had but will give them a try. Many thanks and any other recipes still welcome.
