Twice now, I've forgotten to put greaseproof paper under the baking beans. Perhaps this picture will remind me next time!

Another recipe that has come about as a result of my recent craze, making quiches. This time I thought I would use some of our Home smoked bacon and fresh eggs from our hens.

I'm using Jus Rol ready made shortcrust pastry and find that 1 500g pack is too much pastry for a (shallow) 10" Push-out flan dish, so this time I used about half - which means I can make another one tomorrow!

Mise en place

  • Allow the pastry to get to room temperature before rolling it out.

Method

  1. Preheated the oven to 200° C (400° F - Gas 6)
  2. Roll the pastry and use it to line a greased 20 cm (8") push-out flan dish
  3. Bake blind at 200° C (400° F - Gas 6) for 10 minutes
  4. Beat the eggs, milk, mascarpone cheese and season to taste with pepper - salt won't be needed with the bacon
  5. Stir in the bacon pieces
  6. Pour the egg and bacon mixture into the blind-baked flan case
  7. 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.
  8. Reduce the heat of the oven to 180° C (350° F - Gas 4)
  9. Bake for a further 40 minutes
