250g ready-made shortcrust pastry
1 onion, finely chopped
4 rashes of streaky bacon
100g cheddar cheese
2 eggs
300ml milk
1 tablespoon of oil
Salt and pepper

1.2 litre vegetable stock


1. Roll out the pastry to line an 8-inch quiche tin. Make sure it is placed to fit just above the sides of the tin because the pastry shrinks as it cooks.

2. Fry the onion and the bacon in a frying pan for a few minutes, until softened, then spread evenly over the pastry.

3. Sprinkle half of the cheddar over the bacon mixture.

4. Beat the eggs and milk and season, then pour over the cheese and bacon mixture.

5. Sprinkle the remaining cheese and a little paprika on the top.

6. Bake in a moderate oven, 190°C gas mark 5, for 40–45 minutes

7. Serve hot or cold with a mixed salad.
