This recipe is a free adaptation of the French quiche but made with spring onion, bell pepper and bacon, perfect for a light lunch or for the weekend!

It takes no more than 30 minutes to be ready to serve and it is really quick and easy! You can also prepare it in advance and it is perfect for dinner party and picnic.

Ingredients for 4 persons:

–      1 ready to cook puff pastry dough (you can find it easily in fresh departments of supermarkets)

–      100 gr. of diced bacon

–      4 eggs

–      2 red bell peppers/paprikas

–      1 spring onion

–      1 handful of chives

–      50 gr. of Emmenthal cheese

–      Salt and pepper

Turn the oven at 180ºC.

1/ Take a puff pastry dough and place it in a tart mold. Pinch it with a fork and cover with oven paper with dry beans and put in the warm oven at 180ºC for 10 minutes to pre-cook it.

2/ In the meanwhile, in a fried pan, cook for 5 minutes 100 gr. of diced bacon and 1 spring onion sliced thinly. You don’t need to add oil, the bacon is fat enough! Reserve it.

3/ In a bowl mix 4 eggs, salt and pepper (not too much salt because the bacon and cheese are already quite salty), and sliced chives. Cut some of the bell peppers/paprikas and add them to the eggs as well as the bacon.

4/ Take out the dough from the oven and spread the mixture. Cover with slices of Emmenthal and put it back to the oven for 20 minutes at 180ºC.

Serve it with some nice green salad and you have a perfect lunch! Enjoy! You can perfectly change the veggies with the ones you have available in your fridge! Dare to be creative and then share your favourite combination with us!
