Bacon, Apple & Cheddar Quiche

Servings: 6 slices

Ingredients

for the pastry

  • 1 cup all-purpose white flour
  • pinch salt
  • 2 tablespoons cold butter
  • 2 tablespoons cold lard
  • cold water

for the filling

  • 1/2 onion
  • 2 green apples peeled and cored
  • 4 slices bacon
  • 4 medium-sized eggs
  • pinch pepper
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese grated

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350F/180C and start by prepping the pastry. In a medium-sized bowl, stir together the white flour and salt.
  • Add in the butter and lard and rub them in with your fingertips until you have a breadcrumb-like consistency.
  • Pour in cold water 1 teaspoon at a time, stirring in between. Add water until the mixture comes together into a dough.
  • Roll the dough out onto a lightly floured surface until it's large enough to cover an 8 inch/20cm cake tin. (Or special quiche tin, if they exist.)
  • Line the cake/quiche/pie tin with the pastry and stab the bottom section all over with a fork to ensure even baking.
  • Pop the pastry case into the oven and bake for around 10 minutes, until it just starts to turn golden.
  • Whilst the pastry is baking, prep the filling. Dice the onion, apples and bacon and cook them all together in a saucepan over a medium heat until everything is soft. Stir regularly to ensure nothing burns or sticks to the bottom of the pan.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, beat the eggs together with a pinch of pepper.
  • Remove the pastry case from the oven and layer the onion, apple and bacon mixture into the bottom.
  • Pour the egg mixture on top and sprinkle over the cheese.
  • Pop the quiche back into the oven and bake for around 30-35 minutes until the top is golden and the filling has set.
