QUICHE

Prep: 5 minutes
Total time: 35 minutes

Makes: 10 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 250-g butter puff pastry sheet, defrosted
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup half-and-half cream
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp pepper
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 100 g bacon, chopped (about 4 slices)
  • 1 cup sliced red onions
  • 156 g baby kale (8 cups, packed)

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 425°F.
  • Line a 9-in. metal pie plate or tart pan with removable bottom with puff pastry (carefully rolling or stretching dough to the right size). Trim edges. Prick bottom and sides of crust all over with a fork. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 10 min or until lightly golden. Remove from oven. If it has pulled up, use a fork to flatten dough and press back into place. Turn oven down to 400°F.
  • Beat eggs with cream until uniform, and season with salt, pepper and nutmeg.
  • Place bacon in a frying pan over medium heat and sauté for 4 min or until fat has rendered and bacon is beginning to crisp. Pour off all but 1 tbsp fat. Add onions and sauté for 3 min or until onions are lightly browned. Add kale and sauté for 2 min or until fully wilted. Remove from heat.
  • Scrape into prepared pie shell and spread into an even layer. Pour egg mixture over top and use a fork to lightly stir, making sure that liquid is well distributed.
  • Bake for 25 min or until filling is set. Let stand 10 min to firm up before serving.

TIP: Using a sheet of premade butter puff pastry makes this tart quick and easy to assemble.
