Quiche Lorraine

By Edited May 27, 2016 2 1

Finished quiche


6 ozs/170g shortcrust pastry

8 fluid ozs/236 ml milk

3 eggs

1 small chopped onion

2 rashes of bacon (chopped)

3-4 ozs/85-114g grated Cheddar cheese

Pinch of dry mustard

3/4 oz/21g butter

Salt and pepper to taste

Pinch of Cayenne pepper



You will need a bowl large enough to contain everything except the pastry, a flan case large enough for everything and a frying pan that you will be able to cook the onion and bacon in.

Don't use a Cheddar that is too strong a flavour, or it will dominate the quiche.

You can buy pre-made shortcrust pastry which is easier than making it yourself.

Chop the onion and bacon separately and set aside. Grate the cheese.

Preheat the oven to the required temperature of 180 degrees Celsius/Gas Mark 4/350 degrees Fahrenheit

Cooking instructions

Prepare the pastry by rolling it out if required and line the flan case with it. Prick the base of the pastry.
