Bacon Tomato and Basil Quiche
Most of my favourite dishes could be possibly be described as comforting or stodgy, definitely more autumn winter fayre than spring or summer. However, when the weather warms up, I do find myself craving lighter foods. This week has been one of those rare spring weeks where the temperature has been pushing past 25°C, so I find I am reaching for salads. Another favourite dish when the days grow longer is quiche. Many think that quiche is too unsubstantial for a mail meal, and relegate it to lunch, or picnic food.
Quiche is basically just egg, cream and milk baked in a pastry case–what’s not to like? Throw in some other ingredients, the combinations of which are limitless, and you definitely have something special. Bursting with juicy tomatoes, aromatic basil and smoky bacon, this quiche is robust enough to be a main meal. Serve warm or cold with a crisp green salad.
