My husband’s grandmother cooked this for lunch the very first time I met her (a long time ago!) She wrote the recipe out for me and I have been cooking it ever since. In my recipe folder it is titled ‘Nan’s Impossible Pie’, so I think of her when I make it.
When I got my Thermomix I converted the recipe. It is a very simple and quick kid-friendly dish that can be in the oven in less than 5 minutes. Great for lunch or a an easy dinner served with baked potatoes and salad. It can be made with or without bacon for a vegetarian option. Substitute the bacon with asparagus (fresh or from a tin), corn, or mushrooms.
- 100g cheese
- 1 small onion (in half)
- 100-150g bacon (to your taste)
- 3 eggs
- 15g butter
- 300g milk
- 90g plain flour
- Chop cheese into rough cubes and place in Thermomix bowl. Grate 5 seconds, speed 8. Place aside
- Put onion and bacon into bowl and chop 2-3 seconds, speed 7. NOTE: If you prefer your bacon in larger chunks cut it by hand and add at the end to stir through.
- Add eggs, butter, milk, cheese and flour and mix reverse speed 4-5, 25 seconds.
- Pour mixture into a greased 20cm quiche dish (place sliced tomato on the top if you like) and cook at 180 degrees for approx 45 minutes or until slightly puffed and golden on the top.
