About the bake

Our twist on the classic Quiche Lorraine is a batch of individual quiches which can be enjoyed on their own. We're aiming for a creamy centre with a crispy base and no soggy bottom! We've included a classic Baking Mad video to show you how to blind bake pastry.

If you enjoyed this recipe, we think you'll also like our broccoli and stilton quiche.

Method

  1. Step 1:

    Preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C fan, gas mark 4).

  2. Step 2:

    To make the pastry, put the flour and salt into a large bowl and add the butter . Rub the butter into the flour using your fingertips until it looks like coarse breadcrumbs.

  3. Step 3:

    Using a knife stir in enough cold water to bind the dough together. Wrap the pastry in cling film and chill in the fridge for 15-20 minutes.

  4. Step 4:

    On a lightly floured surface, roll out the pastry. Grease 8 small flan tins and line each one with pastry. Place a circle of baking paper on the pastry and fill with baking beans. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes, then remove the beans and paper and bake for a further 5 minutes.

  5. Step 5:

    To make the filling put all the ingredients apart from 50g of gruyere into a large bowl and mix gently, to avoid getting air into the mixture. Spoon the filling into the pastry cases, then sprinkle with the remaining gruyere.

  6. Step 6:

    Bake in the oven for 15 minutes or until set. Serve hot or cold.
