PASTRY

  • 1¼ cups plain flour
  • ½ cup self raising flour
  • ⅓ cup skim milk
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 tablespoons Flora Light® margarine melted

FILLING

  • cooking spray
  • ¾ cup (110g) bacon short cuts diced
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 cup skim milk
  • 3 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
  • ¼ cup fresh parsley finely chopped
  • ½ teaspoon crushed garlic (in jar)
  • ½ cup 25% reduced fat grated tasty cheese

Preheat oven 180ºC fan forced.

To make pastry:

In a large mixing bowl sift both flours. Combine milk and egg white, beat with a fork. Add melted margarine, then add milk mixture to flour and fold together.

Leave to one side.

To make filling:

Coat a small non-stick frypan with cooking spray, fry bacon until browned.

Leave to one side. In a medium sized mixing bowl beat eggs and whites for 1 minute using an electric beater.

Add milk and beat until blended. Add parmesan cheese, parsley, garlic, grated cheese and cooked bacon.

To prepare quiches:

On a well floured surface roll out pastry until fairly thin. Using an 8cm scone cutter cut 24 circles. Coat a 12 holed muffin tin with cooking spray and place 12 pastry bases into holes.

Pour egg mixture to reach nearly the top of pastry. Bake 20-25 minutes or until egg mixture is firm in centre. Repeat with other 12 pastry bases and filling. Serve hot or cold.
