Homemade Quiche

I think they turned out more like tartlette, a savoury one....oh well, whatever! My mom used to say homemade means not perfect. I think for once, I choose to agree with her.

Simple ingredients and simple indulgence.  Enough said!

Here's the recipe ( From RTHK website)

For the crust :

100g plain flour
50g butter (cold and cubed)
1 egg
1/8 tsp salt
20g cold water

For the filling :

2 eggs
some bacon
70g heavy cream
some shredded cheddar cheese
salt and pepper to taste

Method :

  • Sieve the flour and salt
  • Add in butter and rub in till it resembles bread crumbs
  • Add in egg and water (might need to gauge depending on the brand of flour)
  • Mix everything until a dough is formed
  • Wrap with cling wrap and place in the fridge for about 30 minutes
  • Meanwhile, prepare the filling. Fry bacon till fragrant. Beat eggs and add in cream,salt and pepper. Sieve the mixture. Set aside
  • Roll out dough and cut to the size of the tart mould. Gently place dough over the mould and shape the dough neatly to the sides. Use a fork to poke holes at the bottom.
  • Blind bake at 200 degrees celcius for about 15 mins.
  • Remove from oven. Place bacon and shredded cheese on top and pour the egg mixture to fill the whole tart. Reduce oven heat to 180-190 degrees celcius.
  • Place them back into the oven and continue to bake till egg is set.
