Rustic Quiche with Caramelized Bacon & Garlic

Rustic Quiche with Caramelized Bacon & Garlic

A few weeks ago, hubby attended a talk and came back raving about tasty quiches made with bacon and garlic that were served during lunch time. He told me he ate nine of them.

NINE! Gosh. :P

He showed me the picture of the quiches and the placard with their name. It said, Rustic Quiche with Caramelized Bacon & Garlic. I Googled for some basic quiche recipes and gave them some twists.


(Yields 6 muffin-sized quiches) 

6 slices smoked streaky bacon, chopped to bits
8 garlic cloves, peeled and smashed lightly
Vegetable oil for frying
1 cup grated Cheddar cheese
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup plain yogurt
6 frozen puff pastry, thawed
Some butter, softened

How to: 

1. Preheat oven to 200°C for at least 10 minutes.

2. Place thawed puff pastry into a 6-cup muffin pan; one puff pastry for one cup. Brush each cup with some butter. Set aside.

3. Heat a frying pan. Add vegetable oil and fry bacon bits until caramelized and crispy. Remove from pan and set aside.

4. Fry garlic cloves for approximately 6-7 minutes, flipping often to avoid burning and until individual cloves become golden brown and fragrant. Remove from pan and set aside.

5. In a medium bowl, mix bacon, garlic, and cheese. Scoop this mixture into the prepared muffin cups with puff pastry.

6. Mix beaten eggs and yogurt in a bowl. Mix until smooth. Spoon this egg-yogurt mixture over the cheese mixture.

7. Bake for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 175°C and bake for an additional 35 minutes, until top of quiche begins to turn brown.

8. Serve hot.
