I love making quiches! Especially for picnics.
They are so easy to make and you can put pretty much anything you want in it. Super handy when you have picky friends like I do. And even if they are picky, they don't notice what's actually in a quiche because everything is hidden. How lovely.
Here is my latest, delicious quiche creation. It has bacon, rosemary, feta, and caramelised onions in it. And made with filo pastry, which I like to pretend is healthier. Jamie Oliver says it is.
Bacon, Rosemary and Feta Quiche
- 6 sheets filo pastry, thawed
- 250g bacon, sliced thinly (or you could use bacon bits, but the little cubes always freak me out, or shredded bacon)
- 1 onion, diced
- 3 cloves garlic, crushed
- 3 sprigs rosemary
- 10 little cherry/grape tomatoes, halved
- 100g feta, crumbled
- 200ml heavy cream
- 1/4 cup milk
- 3 eggs
- 25g butter, melted
- 1/2 tbsp oil
- 1/2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
- 1 tsp sugar
- salt and pepper, to taste
- Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease a 20cm quiche pan and line with baking paper.
- Lay one sheet of filo pastry and brush with melted butter, and top with the second sheet. Repeat until all the pastry is used up. If you run out of butter, just melt more (:
- Heat the oil in a little saucepan and fry the garlic until golden and fragrant. Remove the garlic, keeping the oil in the pan, and sprinkle onto the pastry. Fry onion until translucent. Add the sugar and stir until it dissolves then the balsamic. Keep stirring for about thirty seconds then take the pan off the heat. Set aside to cool.
- In a bowl, whisk the eggs, cream, and milk until combined and frothy.
- Sprinkle the onion, feta, rosemary (crumbled off the stems), and bacon bits on top of the pastry. Arrange your tomatoes nicely on top. Season with salt and pepper.
- Pour the egg/cream mixture on top, and then bake fore 30 minutes, or until the pastry is golden brown and the quiche is set, but slightly wobbly in the middle.
- Go on a picnic, serve and enjoy!
