There is no quick midweek dinner quite like an easy Thermomix egg & bacon quiche. It honestly takes no time at all and tastes amazing. We usually serve our quiche with steamed vegetables or a salad (depending on the weather!). And it makes the best leftovers for lunch the next day.
This recipe also freezes really well so it's a great idea to make one on the weekend and freeze it in individual portions for a 'grab and run' lunch on the go. This is a really versatile recipe, so you can substitute the bacon for salami, add in a bit of feta, baby spinach or sundried tomatoes, or even use leftover roast chicken and corn. Yum!
I like to use a basic olive oil pastry for this recipe - which is incredibly simple to make in the Thermomix. But if you're running short on time, you can always grab a pre-made pastry shell from the supermarket. Speaking of pastry!! Whenever I'm making pastry, I always make a couple of batches in one go and freeze the rest. That way there's always pastry ready whenever I need it. Biggest time saver ever!
Oh and if you'd like your quiche to be a bit richer, you can use cream instead of milk. But to be honest, I always use light milk and it's absolutely delicious.
