Easy full English picnic quiche
Brunch is undeniably one of the best things about British culture, we seem to just bloody love it. You legit can’t go anywhere without there being a fucking popup serving literally anything coupled with bottomless prosecco while everyone moans about how hot or cold the weather is. Go for a picnic yeah? Exactly, that’s why I’ve made this guy. A true English breakfast, all packed into a quiche (or kweesh as I pronounce it because I'm hilarious) ready for a summery day, maybe even have a glass of prosecco or two and moan about the weather. The choice is yours. Here’s how to make the full English picnic quiche.
TIME: 45 minutes SERVES: 2-4
For the pastry:
175g of plain flour
100g of butter
1/2 teaspoon of sea salt
For the filling:
4 large eggs
6 rashers of smoked, streaky bacon, fried and cut into small slices
100g of black pudding, cooked and cut into small chunks
2 Cumberland sausages, cooked and sliced
100g of baked beans
100g of cheddar cheese, grated
50ml of milk
50ml of single cream
1.) Pre-heat the oven to 180 celsius - In a jug add the eggs, milk, cream, cheese, cooked bacon, sausage, baked beans and black pudding and mix well.
2.) Grease a flan/tart tin with butter and then roll the shortcrust pastry out into a circle about a 5mm thick and lay over the tin. Press the dough into the corners of the tin and leave a little bit over hanging which will reduce when baked.
3.) Fill the unbaked tart with baking beans or a useful substitute like rice in an ovenproof bag and bake for 15 minutes, take out from the oven and remove the baking beans and then cook for a further 5 minutes.
4.) Remove from the oven and pour the mixture into the tin, sprinkle the extra sausage, bacon and black pudding over the top followed by the cheese and bake for 30 minutes or until the mixture doesn't jiggle.
5.) Let cool for 10 minutes and serve!
