List of ingredients for Egg and bacon flan

* 250 g (9 oz) from block of ready-made shortcrust pastry
* 2 free range eggs, beaten
* 45 ml (4 tablespoons) of milk
* 3 tablespoons of mascarpone cheese
* 5 rashers of cooked bacon, home smoked bacon or ham, chopped into tiny pieces.
* freshly ground black pepper
* Slices of tomato or red pepper or green pepper or a mixture of all to garnish

* Preheated the oven to 200 C (400 F - Gas 6)
* Roll the pastry and use it to line a greased 20 cm (8") push-out flan dish
* Bake blind at 200 C (400 F - Gas 6) for 10 minutes
* Beat the eggs, milk, mascarpone cheese and season to taste with pepper - salt won't be needed with the bacon
* Stir in the bacon pieces
* Pour the egg and bacon mixture into the blind-baked flan case
* Decorate with whatever you have to hand, I used half of a green pepper, sliced, but use whatever you have to hand, tomatoes look and taste are good.
* Reduce the heat of the oven to 180 C (350 F - Gas 4)
* Bake for a further 40 minutes
