On Halloween, it seemed appropriate to post a recipe that seems very strange.
I actually didn’t believe this recipe when it was given to me by a Kiwi friend, (that’s someone from New Zealand for those who don’t know Aussie slang), but I tried it myself and it really works. It is so simple that it is the ideal dish for anyone who isn’t very confident in the kitchen.
The great thing about this is that you don’t have to mess about with the traditional pastry base but you still get a delicious meal. The end result tastes just like a Quiche Lorraine.
If you don’t like bacon or want to make this suitable for vegetarians, then just make a substitution that suits you.
Ingredients – serves 4:
- 1/2 tbsp oil
- 4 rashers bacon, chopped
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup grated cheese
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2/3 cup self raising flour
- 3 tbsp melted butter
- salad of your choice, to serve
- Heat your oven to 180C/160C fan forced/350F.
- Fry the bacon in the oil until crisp. Lift it from the frying pan with a slotted spoon, dry with some paper towel and then put aside to cool.
- Reserve about 2 tablespoons of the bacon fat in the frying pan and then fry the chopped onion until just turning brown. Drain, pat dry, add to the bacon and mix together.
- Place the eggs, cheese, milk, salt, flour and melted butter into a container that you can seal with a lid.
- Shake it all together well.
- Take a quiche dish and spray a little cooking spray into it. Layer the bacon and onions over the bottom of the dish.
- Pour the egg mixture over the bacon and onions in the dish.
- Bake for about 35 minutes or until golden and set.
- Remove from the oven and leave for about 5 minutes.
- Serve with a nice salad of your choice.
