Bacon and onion quiche

    1 hour 10 min

    A delicious, simple quiche recipe. It is possible to use a different kind of cheese for this quiche. The onions go perfectly well with a cheese like Comté - but you can also use slices of goat's cheese. In that case, place the goat cheese on the quiche just before baking it.

    1. Start by preparing the shortcrust pastry: In a large bowl, add flour then butter and salt, mix well then stir in 50ml of water.
    2. Form a ball with the dough, wrap in cling film and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
    3. Preheat the oven to 190 C / Gas 5.
    4. Roll the pastry out on a floured work surface, then line it in a 25cm diameter buttered pie dish.
    5. Prick the pastry with a fork. Cover with baking parchment, then add dry beans and bake for 12 minutes.
    6. Meanwhile, start preparing the filling: Heat the olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add the onions and bacon and cook for 7 to 8 minutes, stirring regularly.
    7. Remove the pastry case from the oven (leave the oven on). Remove the parchment and the beans. Spoon the onion mixture over the pastry case.
