Mixed Seedbread and Onion/Mushroomquiche

Last weekend we were invited to the birthday party of a friend of mine. The evening before she called a little bit worried, because she realised that the party food was not vegetarian, except off salate and bread. I offered instantly to bring a quiche, pleased that I had a reason to bake.

But then I could not decide: onions or mushrooms? And I planed to bake bread also , for that I prepared already a preferment. So what to do?

But then I had an idea. Why not make one dough, then splitt it and make bread with two-thirds and the quiche with the other third?

Mixed Seedbread and Onion/Mushroomquiche

yield 2 bread (each about 900g )and a baking tray quiche


  • 500g flour (Typ 550)
  • 350g water
  • 2g yeast


  • 500g flour (Typ 550)
  • 500g wheat, freshly grounded to flour
  • 30g salt
  • 15g yeast
  • 700g water

for the bread

  • 250g mixed seeds

Onion filling:

  • 750 g onion
  • 1 egg
  • 100g heavy whipping cream
  • salt
  • pepper

Mushroom filling

  • 800g mushroom
  • 1 egg
  • 100g heavy whipping cream
  • salt
  • pepper
  • cress

Mix all incredienice for the preferment and let ferment it over night at roomtemperature.

The next day put the preferment, the diffrent flours, salt, water and yeast in the bowl of the kitchen machine, mix shortly  and rest it for 30 min (autolysis). Now knead for 10 min untill the gluten develops.

Take one third (for the quiche) to another bowl and mix the seeds to the other two-thirds. Proof both dough for one hour. Preheat the baking stone to 250°C.


Cut the Onions and the mushrooms into slices and roast in two diffrent pans untill golden. Let cool down, then mix with egg and cream and season with salt and pepper.

Roll out the dough to the size of the baking tray and lay it on the baking tray. Let ferment for half an hour, then cover half of the dough with the onion filling, the other half with the mushroom filling. Put the tray on the hot stone and bake for 30 min.



Put the dough to your working sureface and divide it into two pices of the same size. Shape it to oval breads and rest it for 60 minutes. Slash the bread after 45 min. Preheat the oven and the baking stone to 250°C during this time.

Put it in the oven on the hot stone and bake with steam for around 35 min.

    Thank you, Stefanie. Yes, whipping cream is around 35% butterfat.

    Hahaha!! I hadn’t noticed the large amount of onion. That would be for a very big party!! Think of the tears!

    Hi Elizabeth,
    Sahne is cream, thats right. The butterfat content of the “Sahne” is around
    35%, that should be the same butterfat content heavy whipping cream, or am I wrong?

    Upps… I see it just now – I put the cream twice in the recipe, on time im german, on time in english.

    Its now correct! I should not try to watch TV and write, it always ends with stupid mistakes. In the first version, the recipe claims for 750 kg onion, too. I think, that would be a funny picture: Myself in the kitchen chopping a gigant pile of onions *lol*

    I think these should be required food at ALL parties. I am not vegetarian but I can’t imagine caring that there was no meat. Those look fabulous.

    What is the difference in butterfat content between sahne and heavy whipping cream? (sahne is cream, yes?)

    Hallo Susan,
    they liked it 😀 Not only the vegetarians (another girl and me) but all the other guests, too. I always like to prepare food for partys, where nobody is missing meat.
    My seed mix was: pumkinseeds, sunflower seeds, flaxseeds, sesame, some rolled oats.
    I am so curiose for this weeks Yeastsspotting
