Phil Vickery's Bacon, Onion & Potato Quiche

Phil's here to teach us how to make the ultimate quiche! No more naff rubbery quiche with Phil's foolproof recipe. 

Bacon, Onion & Potato Quiche

Serves: 6-8 persons 


2 tbsp oil

4 rashers back bacon, cut into very small pieces

2 onions, peeled and finely chopped

24cm x 4cm shortcrust pastry case, blind baked brushed with egg to seal

350g cooked potatoes, cut into small cubes

2 tbsp fresh parsley, roughly chopped 

150g Gruyere or Emmental cheese, finely grated 

4 medium eggs

400 ml milk, boiled and cooled for 10 minutes

A pinch of nutmeg

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Dressed green salad to serve


1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, Gas 4

2. Heat the oil and add the bacon and cook for 10 minutes, then add the onions and cook for a further 5 minutes

3. Spread the onions and bacon over the base of the pastry case, and then sprinkle over the cooked cubed potatoes

4. Sprinkle over the parsley then top with half the cheese

5. Gently whisk the eggs with the hot milk, nutmeg and season with salt and pepper

6. Pour over half the egg custard, but only half fill the pastry case

7. Place the pastry case on a baking tray then place in the oven, fill up the pastry case to the top now it's placed in the oven. This way, you do not get any spillage. Top with the rest of the cheese. 

8. Bake for 25-30 minutes, do not soufflé

Phil likes to serve his quiche with a crisp, dressed green salad.
