Onion, Orange and Bacon Quiche

Onion, Orange and Bacon Quiche

Experience the comfort of a rich, homemade quiche, with buttery pastry, salty bacon and sweet orange and onions. A perfect winter combination and a delicious dinnertime recipe. 


  • 400g plain flour
  • 200g unsalted butter, softened and cubed
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 6 rashers smoked bacon, chopped
  • 4 large eggs
  • 200ml single cream
  • 100ml semi-skimmed milk
  • ½ zest large orange
  • 140g mature cheddar cheese
  • 3 tbsp Montecoppe Red Onion and Orange Peel chutney


  1. Pre-heat the Smeg Pizza Stone in the base of the oven at  160oC for 45 minutes, on Turbo cooking function.
  2. In the Smeg stand mixer, add the flour and butter. Using the dough hook, mix on speed 3 for approximately 1 minute, until resembling fine breadcrumbs. Add chilled water, 1 tbsp at a time, until the mixture pulls into a ball. Cover with cling film and refrigerate for 15 minutes.
  3. In a frying pan, heat 1 tbsp oil on a medium heat. Fry the bacon for 2 minutes until lightly cooked.
  4. With a fork, beat together the eggs, cream, milk and orange. Season well. Add the cheese and half of the bacon.
  5. On a well-floured surface, roll out the pasty into an even circle, around ½ cm thick. Grease a metal 24cm flan dish, line with the pastry, prick the base and pour in the filling mixture (using the Smeg Pizza Stone means no blind-baking is required, as the stone cooks from bottom to top).
  6. Place the dish onto the hot Pizza Stone. Bake for 5 minutes. Remove from the oven and spread a thin layer of the Montecoppe chutney over the quiche, along with the remaining bacon.
  7. Return to the oven and cook for a further 10-15 minutes until golden. Allow to cool slightly before serving.

Tip: Ensure the flan dish is metal, not ceramic, as this ensures it can reach high temperatures safely.
