Ingredients
  1. 125ml milk
  2. 125g Kerrygold butter
  3. 2 cups self-raising flour
  4. 4 eggs
  5. 3/4 cup milk
  6. 3/4 cup cream
  7. 3 tbsp semi-dried tomatoes
  8. 3 tbsp goats cheese
  9. 1 tbsp basil, chopped
  10. 1 tbsp parmesan, grated
  11. sea salt and cracked black pepper
  12. loose base quiche tin, similar to this
Instructions
  1. To make the pastry, melt the butter and milk over a low heat in a saucepan.
  2. Once fully melted, leave to cool. I add the mix to a bottle and then run it under a cold tap to speed up the process.
  3. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees.
  4. Add the flour and mix. Press the mixture into the quiche tin, making sure the base and sides are fully coated and there are no 'holes' in the pastry.
  5. Sprinkle the base with the goats cheese and sundried tomatoes.
  6. Mix the eggs, milk and cream. Season with salt and pepper and add the basil.
  7. Top the pastry with the egg mix, making sure it does not go over the top of the pastry at the sides.
  8. Bake for 10 minutes, then turn the oven down to 180 degrees.
  9. Bake for another 30 minutes. Remove and sprinkle with parmesan. Leave to cool slightly before serving.
