Caramelised Onion and Bacon Tarts

Savoury tarts always make for a scrumptious lunch and come together quite quickly, so if you have last minute guests, you are good to go. I was going to serve these tasty tarts with a all-home-grown salad and when I went to harvest my greens, my lettuce had all but vanished!  I had the healthiest most beautiful lettuce not 2 days earlier – I can only assume that all the rain we have been having has something to do with it.  What a disappointment, but no matter, these little individual quiches still went down a treat.

Caramelised Onion and Bacon Tarts


1 brown onion thinly sliced
6 rashers streaky bacon chopped
250ml cheddar cheese grated
3 eggs
125ml milk
5ml veggie spice
Black pepper to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Caramelise the onions over a medium heat in a little olive oil and butter.  Set aside.
  3. Fry the bacon until cooked through.
  4. Beat the eggs in a jug and add the milk, veggie spice and pepper.
  5. Divide the onion and bacon into 4 10cm prepared quiche tins. *
  6. Divide and spread the cheese over the onion and bacon.
  7. Pour over the egg mixture and bake for 15 minutes.

*If using the loose bottom tins, place them on a baking tray in case they leak.
