Temp =
160° c  -  320° f

Step 1: You will need …

  • 300 g shop crust pastry
  • 250 g Gruyère cheese
  • 200 g bacon, chopped
  • 5 eggs beaten
  • 100 ml milk
  • 200 ml double cream
  • 2 tbsp flour for dusting
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 Pie tin 23cm / 9 inch in diameter
  • 1 Frying pan
  • Kitchen roll
  • 1 rolling pin
  • 1 fork
  • Tongs
  • 1 Circle of Parchment paper cut to size of pie tin

Step 2: Preheat the oven

Begin by turning the oven to 160 degrees centigrade or gas mark 2.

Step 3: Fry the bacon

Place a frying pan on a medium heat. Allow pan to warm through. Then add the bacon. Fry until crispy, stirring occasionally. Once crispy, tip the bacon onto a plate lined with kitchen roll to drain. Reserve for later.

Step 4: Place the parchment

Taking your circle of parchment, carefully lay it into the pie tin. Dust it with flour to avoid the quiche sticking. And set aside.

Step 5: Roll the pastry

Liberally sprinkle your work surface with flour. Then lay your ball of pastry into it. Dust the pastry with flour. And begin to roll out the pastry, into a thin flat sheet with your rolling pin, using the heel of your hand.

Step 6: Lay the pastry

Taking your pastry sheet, carefully lay it over the paper in the pie tin. Mould it into the bottom and around the sides. Crimp down the edges with your fingers, which simply means to push down lightly. Then remove excess pastry from the edges.

Step 7: Add the cheese and bacon

Evenly sprinkle first the cheese into the pie tin, and then the chopped bacon.

Step 8: Make the egg mixture

Add milk into the bowl of beaten egg. Then follow with cream, salt and pepper. And combine well with a fork.

Step 9: Add egg mix

When nicely combined, carefully pour the egg mix evenly over the bacon and cheese. It is now ready to bake.

Step 10: Bake

Place the quiche into the centre of the preheated oven and bake for 30-40 minutes until it has set.

Step 11: Serve

Allow to rest for 10 minutes before serving, as this will make it easier cut. Slice and serve hot or cold with some fresh parsley for garnish. And that's how to make classic quiche lorraine the VideoJug way. Enjoy!
