  4. Take out and sit till not-so-hot (you will need to touch the pastry to put the filling in)

Filling

This is a whole mixture of ingredients so you’ll have to cut most of it up and combine in a bowl

  1. Slice capsicum / peppers into thin strips
  2. Slice mushrooms into thin slices
  3. Cut up spring onions
  4. Cut bacon into small squares / rectangles and fry up for a few mins – you don’t want it to be too oily though and DONT over-cook (otherwise it’ll be too crunchy!)
  5. Cut chesse into 1cm cubes
  6. Beat eggs, cream, pepper & nutmeg together till combined (as though you were beating it for scrambled eggs)
  7. Put in half the solid ingredients to the base, then pour half of the egg/cream/etc mixture, then the rest of the ingredients then the rest of the egg mixture
  8. Stick it in the oven for about 45mins – 1hr 15 mins, until the tops of some of the vegies are starting to brown.
  9. Let it sit before serving for about 10 mins
