How To Make Bacon And Vegetable Quiche
In a large bowl, add flour, milk, oil, breadcrumbs, and salt. Mix to combine.
Turn out onto a lightly floured board. Work until well incorporated and a smooth dough forms. Work into a ball, wrap in cling wrap/plastic, and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Place dough in between two sheets of baking paper, using a heavy-based pot press down to flatten the dough as much as you can. Using a rolling pin, roll out until you have a 16” circle
This will fit an 8” springform pan.
Once rolled, fit pastry to your lightly greased springform pan. Pressing gently so you don’t tear it.
Cutaway any excess. Prick the base in 3-4 places with a fork. Place in the refrigerator for an hour or until you are ready to cook.
