Throw it all in quiche!

Normally Quiches in our house are saved for occasions when there is very little food in the fridge, but last night l thought I might actually put a little bit of effort into it. I normally make Donna Haye's Short Crust Pastry but the last two times l have made it has failed miserably.

I'm so glad l decided to try another recipe, because this one was so beautiful. I couldn't believe how easily the pastry rolled, there were no tares or cracks which is a very rare thing for me! Oh and of course tasted fantastic.

The recipe for the pastry is

Pre-Heat oven to 180' Degrees

2 cups of flour
125g butter chilled
2 egg yolks
Iced water if needed

Chop butter into small cubes and place in flour, combine until it looks like breadcrumbs. Mix together until a dough is formed, add small amounts of water if required. Wrap in plastic and put it in the fridge for 15 minutes.

Roll out and then place in a tin I used an 8 inch tin, cover with baking paper and put rice or baking weights over the paper. Cook for 15 mins , then remove the paper and weights and cook for another 15 minutes or until lightly browned.

Now for the filling l am just a throw it all in kind of girl. So l added bacon, mushrooms, spring onion, roasted capsicum, feta cheese, 4 eggs, and about 200 ml of cream.

Mix all your filling ingredients and cook until lightly brown and the mixture is set.
