By PaulineComms 15 Apr 2024

If you're itching for a break from the textbooks and looking to soak up some sunshine, why not head out for a laid-back picnic in London? Picture this: lounging on a cozy blanket, surrounded by friends, and munching on delicious homemade snacks – sounds like the perfect day, right? Well, we've got you covered with four super chill recipes that won't leave your wallet crying.

👨‍🍳 Mini Quiches

📋 Ingredients:

  • 300g shortcrust pastry
  • plain flour, for dusting
  • 4 rashers back bacon, fat trimmed, chopped
  • oil, for frying
  • 100g gruyère cheese, grated
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 125ml double cream
  1. Begin by rolling out the pastry onto a lightly floured surface until it's thin. Cut out circles slightly larger than your tartlet tins. Line the tins with the pastry circles, pressing them gently into the edges and up the sides. If you have more pastry than tins, you may need to bake them in batches. Once all tins are lined, chill them for about 30 minutes. If you're baking in batches, chill the off-cuts of pastry as well.
  2. Preheat your oven to 200°C/180°C fan/gas 6. Line each pastry case with a piece of foil and fill them with baking beans or uncooked rice. Bake them for 10 minutes, then remove the foil and beans and bake for an additional 5 minutes. While the pastry is baking, fry the bacon in a little oil until it's crisp.
  3. Once the pastry cases are pre-baked, divide the crispy bacon and half of the cheese between the cases. In a separate bowl, beat together the eggs and cream. Pour this mixture over the bacon and cheese until the cases are almost full. Scatter the remaining cheese on top. Bake the tartlets for 20-25 minutes or until they're golden and puffed up. Let them cool, then chill before serving. These tartlets can be made a day ahead for convenience!
