Thermomix Instructions

  • Lightly grease a 5 cup capacity pie dish and preheat your oven to 200 degrees celsius (fan-forced)
  • Cut the cheese into 3 cm pieces and add to your Thermomix bowl. Mix for 6 seconds, speed 8 to grate. Set aside until needed.
  • Without washing the bowl, add the brown onion (cut in half) and mix for 3 seconds, speed 7 to grate.
  • Scrape down the sides of the Thermomix bowl and add the chopped bacon pieces plus 10 grams of olive oil and cook for 3 minutes, 100 degrees, speed 2.
  • Add the cooked bacon and onion to a large bowl along with the grated cheese and flour and mix until all the ingredients are coated in flour before seasoning with a little salt and pepper.

  • In a large jug, whisk together the eggs and milk before carefully pouring it over the mixture in the pie dish and garnish with parsley.
  • Place the pie into your preheated oven and bake for 40 minutes or until the pie has risen and is golden.

Notes

  • If you are running short of time, you can add the bacon and onion pieces uncooked, however cooking them does help to give the pie more flavour.
  • It is important to coat the bacon, onion and cheese with the self-raising flour as this is what helps the ingredients to not fall to the bottom of the pie dish.
  • I used 700 gram eggs, if your eggs are on the smaller side I suggest using five.
  • You can cook this pie in a pie maker.
  • This recipe can be frozen for up to three months.
