Recipe – Bacon, Broad Bean and Sun-Dried Tomato Quiche

You know the drill by now…fake it so you don’t have to make it! I am a big fan of these ready-made quiche bases. Yes, they are cheating slightly but if you fancy a delicious midweek pastry treat, you may not always have time to mix, rest and roll out pastry from scratch.

Seeing as the base takes little to no effort, I always think you need to make a real effort with the filling in terms of flavour. This one has salty, crispy bacon, sweet broad beans and rich tomatoes…a perfect melody of flavours and textures.

Ingredients

3-4 rashers of smoked streaky bacon

About 75g of frozen broad beans

5-6 sun-dried tomatoes, roughly chopped

150ml of crème fraîche

2 eggs

3 tablespoons of milk

A handful of fresh parsley

Salt and pepper

1 ready-made pastry case

A handful of grated Parmesan cheese

How to make it

  • Begin by preheating the oven to 180°C, Gas Mark 4
  • In a large pan, gently fry the bacon until it has started to go crispy
  • Pour some boiling water over the broad beans and drain
  • In a jug, whisk together the crème fraîche, eggs, milk, parsley and season well
  • Take your pastry case and layer the broad beans and tomatoes along the base

  • Carefully pour over the egg mixture ensuring it is evenly spread around the fillings

My name is Hannah. I live near Bath in a lovely village in the Cotswolds with my husband Ian, the love of my life for the past 10 years, in our dream cottage. I have landed my dream job as a primary school teacher and I can’t think of anything else I would rather be doing. I am a self-confessed foodie and I love to cook, bake, and eat out as much as possible. Here are some things I love: My friends and family, travelling, fresh flowers, good books, having breakfast on my balcony, horror films, Christmas, tea, Las Vegas, lie-ins, red wine, Liverpool FC, music, sausage dogs, Spain, rare steak, fashion, cheese, American TV series and camping. And here are my pet hates: People dressed as animals, whistling, being rushed, being made to wait, girls who act stupid to impress a man, spiders, sunburn and rocket (it comes with EVERYTHING!)
