Bacon and Mushroom
Mini Quiche


  • 250g bacon, diced
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 200g button mushrooms, chopped
  • 12 sheets filo pastry
  • 120g tasty cheese, grated
  • 2 tablespoons chives, chopped
  • 4 eggs
  • 185ml (3/4 cup) pouring cream


Preheat oven to 180C/160C fan-forced. Grease 2 x 12 hole ¼ cup capacity patty tins with non-stick cooking spray.

Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Spray with oil, add bacon and onion, and cook, stirring for 3-4 minutes or until golden. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring for 4-5 minutes or until soft and golden. Remove from heat, cool.

Lay a sheet of filo on a clean work surface. Spray with oil. Place a second layer of filo on top. Repeat with spray and filo until there are six layers. Use remaining six sheets to form a second stack. Cut each stack into 12. Line the patty tins with squares of filo pastry, scrunching to make little cases.

Using half the cheese, place a small amount into each pastry case. Add the chives to the bacon mixture. Divide evenly between the pastry cases. Whisk the eggs and milk in a large jug, season with salt and pepper. Pour egg mixture evenly between pastry cases. Scatter over the remaining cheese.

Bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden and crisp.
