Serves: 1

By blackrock



  • 1 onion (small)

  • 100ml milk

  • 250g cheddar

  • 55g flour

  • 1 slice bacon chopped

  • 3 sprigs thyme

  • 30g butter

  • 1 egg


  1. To make the pastry case, rub the butter into flour until like crumbs. Add a small amount of water until you can form a dough. Roll out (use additional flour to avoid sticking), and drape over small flan/tart dish (ovenproof). The pastry should drape over the edges of the dish to allow for shrinkage.
  2. Place a heavy ovenproof weight in the centre (or baking beans). Cook for ten minutes once oven hot.
  3. On a low heat, fry the bacon strips. When hot and fat melting, add the onion.
  4. Fry slowly, until soft. Add thyme leaves.
  5. Mix egg and milk. Whisk. Add pinch of salt and pepper.
  6. Remove semi-cooked pastry case from the oven.
  7. Place onion, thyme and bacon in the base.
  8. Pour milk/egg over the top. (Add cheese if desired.)
  9. Cook for about 30 minutes until the liquid is set and the top begins to brown. Grated cheese can be added to the top.

Handy Hint

I serve with boiled/crushed new potatoes and a knob of butter. I place tomatoes on the top before cooking to add more veg/fruit. I serve with peas or salad.
