Ingredients

How to make it

  • Place the fflour, salt and butter into a food processer and whizz for 30 seconds or until a ball starts to form. Add the water and whizz again until the pastry leaves the sides - no more than 2 minutes. This can be done by hand.
  • Wrap the pastry ball in cling film or foil and place into the fridge for 40 minutes.
  • Heat the oven to 425°F/220°C/Gas Mark 7 (Hot)
  • Use a floured rolling pin and roll out the pastry so it is about 2 inches larger than a 9 inch quiche pan. Fold into quarters and place it into the dish.
  • Unfold and press the party into the bottom and sides. Cut the pastry about 1 inch above the lip of the pan.
  • Carefully line the pastry with a sheet of foil and bake for 10 minutes.
  • Beat the eggs, salt, cayenne and black pepper together in a medium bowl.
  • Cook the lardons. They don't have to be crisp unless you like them that way. Just cooked will do.
  • Remove foil carefully and bake for another 2 minutes.
  • Take the pastry case from the oven and turn the heat down to 325°F/150°C/Gas Mark 3 (Low)
  • Sprinkle the lardons, most of the grated cheese (leave half a handful) and the onions over the base of the pie crust. Pour in the egg mix and sprinkle the remaining cheese on top. Place the tomato slices on the top of the cheese - leave spaces if you like cripsy bits of cheese.
  • Bake for 45-50 minutes or until a knife comes out clean.

    Husband said he'd like to have an egg and bacon pie. His mother u sed to make it and it was his favorite dish. His mum was wonderful incidentally but a lousy cook! I made it and its now no.3 on his favorite list. I like it too but I'm more of a cook than an eater.
