This simple quiche Lorraine uses a tortilla as the pastry base to keep the SmartPoints low and crust crunch factor high.

Ingredients

extra light tortilla

144 g, (3 x 48g tortilla)

sunflower oil

1 tbs

onion

1 medium, thinly sliced

shortcut bacon

125 g, coarsely chopped

egg(s)

4 medium

fresh flat-leaf parsley

2 tbs, finely chopped

vegetable stock cube

¼ individual, to make 100ml of stock

reduced-fat 15% cheddar cheese

50 g

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C and heat a baking sheet until hot. Brush one side of tortilla with 2 tsp of oil, then microwave each on high for 10 seconds to soften. Press one tortilla, oil-side-down, into the base of a 20cm cake tin or pie dish. Halve two remaining tortillas, and press around sides of the tin, making sure they overlap and leave no gaps.
  2. Heat remaining oil in a medium non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Cook onion for 5 minutes or until softened, add bacon and cook for 3 minutes or until just cooked.
  3. In a medium bowl, lightly whisk eggs, parsley and stock. Season with pepper.
  4. Scatter two-thirds of cheese over base of prepared tin. Spoon over onion mixture. Pour over egg mixture then top with remaining cheese. Transfer to hot baking sheet and bake for 40-45 minutes, or until filling is set (see tip).
  5. Cool in tin or dish for 10 minutes. Cut into wedges to serve.

Notes

To check the filling is ready, give the tin a little shake – it should have a slight wobble in the middle.
