It’s that yum, yum, yummy time of the month again. It’s Fantastic Bake Along Time:) Yea!! This month’s star baker is Emma over @ Emma Crafts Design.
This month’s recipe is Emma’s delicious quiche. She says it is her husband’s favorite. Doesn’t it look so delicious? I can’t wait to give it a try!
Here is the recipe:
Preheat your oven to 180°C (356°F).
You will need for the pastry:
- 75 g butter (you can also use margarine)
- 150 g plain flour
- 50 g water (50 mL)
- salt for seasoning
For those of us using cup measurements, you can convert measurements on Google or a close approximate conversion is– 50ml = 1/4c
Mix all your ingredients together until well combined. Roll your pastry out and place in a quiche tin (I roll my pastry on a sheet of baking paper and use it to line the tin, it makes it easier to clean!). Trim your pastry and pick the bottom of the pastry with a fork to prevent it from raising once in the oven.
You will need for the filling:
150-200 g of bacon bits
- 4 eggs
- 100 g of thickened cream
- 50 g of milk (50 mL)
- block cheese (you can use gruyere or Swiss cheese too)
- salt and pepper for seasoning
Cook your bacon bits in a pan for 3-5 minutes, then lay them evenly on your pastry. In a bowl, whisk the eggs, cream and milk together, adding salt and pepper to taste. Pour the mixture over the bacon bits, straight on top of your pastry. Grate about 50 g of your block cheese on top of your quiche.
Bake for 30-35 minutes or until the cheese is golden brown.
