• 1 pkt shortcrust pastry
  • 250g rashers bacon, rind and fat removed, chopped
  • 1 cup grated tasty cheese

Place a baking tray in oven and preheat oven and tray to 200C.

Line base and sides of a 2.5cm deep, 25cm (base) fluted loose-based flan with pastry.

Cover with baking paper and weights (rice or beans work well) and bake according to directions on the packet.

Meanwhile, heat a non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Add bacon and cook for 4 minutes or until light golden. Set aside to cool completely.

Reduce oven to 180C. Spread bacon mixture over pastry base.

Place eggs, cream and salt and pepper in a jug and beat with a fork until well combined. Pour over cheese.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until the centre is set.

Cut into slices and serve hot or cold with salad.
