This is another no-pastry quiche which Mum collected from the New Idea. I’m not sure what the difference between a quiche without pastry and a frittata is. I suspect it’s just the country it’s made in – Quiche, Australia – Frittata, Italy. What do you think?
This recipe gets it’s name from the Mallee District an area in north west Victoria, but over the years I’ve seen it with lots of other names including Impossible Pie and Zuccchini slice. I suppose it’s an Australian version of a frittata, the Italian crustless quiche to which a variety of meat and vegetables are added. It’s a nice easy meal and if you make this version you’ll feel very Australian.
