Mini Bacon & Cheese Quiche

Other than Pizza, another savoury cheesy pastry that my teens love would be Quiche. Using the recipe that my 'master' (师父) an old friend once shared, I've baked quiches few times, big pie or mini ones. With the basic recipe for crust dough, I love to make some variations to my choice ingredients with whatever I could salvage from the fridge.

Mini Bacon & Cheese Quiche
(makes about 12 muffin foil case)
Flour 190g (multi-purpose plain flour)
Cold butter 90g
Cold ice water 35ml

1) Sift flour & a pitch of salt in large bowl.
2) Cut cold butter in small cubes or pieces, pour into flour.

3) Rub the butter with flour (rub in method using fingers not palm) till crumbly consistency.

4) Add in water to desired consistency.

5) Mix into dough - a light smooth paste and rest it at least 30 mins before cutting/dividing the dough into smaller portion.
Meanwhile, prepare the *choice ingredients and set aside.

6) Divide and weigh dough into smaller balls. {25g each for muffin foil case}

7) Fill dough into foil case. Rest 5 - 10 mins before tidying the edge.  While waiting, prepare the **quiche filling**.

8) Preheat the oven at 180°C
Fill the case base with grated Cheddar cheese and choice ingredients (slightly 3/4 full).
Pour Quiche filling into case 3/4 full. Top with some Parmesan cheese and bake about 35 mins.

**Quiche filling**
1 egg
Fresh milk 75ml
Whip cream 60ml
Beat egg, liquid and strain. Set aside.
Note: if making mini quiche, strain the liquid into a water measuring jar for easy pouring into the mini case.

Some grated Cheddar or Mozzarella cheese
Some Parmesan cheese

*Choice ingredients [do adjust to your preference]
Bacon (pan-fried till slightly crispy)
<cut in small pieces for above>
Some frozen mixed carrot, corn & peas (thawed)

Yummy pipping hot Bacon & Cheese Quiche ... perfect weekend treats together with a cup of hot or cold beverages !
