Time vs. Teo. Eurovision party!

So, from the title you might have guessed that I’m a big Eurovision Song Contest fan. This year, I’ve been invited to a party at a friend’s house to watch the final all together. Since he already sorted drinks and a few bits to eat, I asked him if I should bring something else and he asked me for something Italian.

Having worked during the day, I didn’t have much time to prepare one of my specialities, so I thought a couple of quiches might be the best option. But it all became a time challenge.

I arrived at Tom’s at 5, literally left my bag there and went straight to Lidl to but all the ingredients. My choices were a meaty and a veggie version. You’ll find the ingredients below:

MEATY QUICHE

  • 1 puff pastry roll
  • 1/4 onion
  • 1 pack of bacon rashers
  • 1 can of sliced button mushrooms
  • 8 boiled small baby potatoes
  • 100g mild cheddar

VEGGIE QUICHE

  • 1 puff pastry roll
  • 1/4 onion
  • 1 large courgette
  • 1 can of peas & baby carrots
  • 8 boiled small baby potatoes
  • 100g mild cheddar
  • 1 egg

The prep is quite simple. First thing first, pre heat the oven to 200°C. Chop roughly half an onion, divide it in two saucepans and add two tablespoons of oil in each one.

Wash and chop in cubes the courgette, turn on the stove and quickly roast it with the onion. After a couple of minutes, add the peas and carrots, stir, add salt and pepper to taste and lower the flame.

While keeping an eye on the first mix, chop roughly the bacon rashers and add them to the second pan. Drain the mushrooms, add them to the bacon and let fry until the liquid is evaporated. Add some pepper if you like, the rashers are salty enough so there’s no need to add salt.

Both mixes are ready in approximately 10 minutes. Grate some cheddar cheese (I’m real fond of cheese so I prepared quite a lot) and unfold the puff pastry on two baking trays. Drain and chop some baby potatoes (8-10 for each mix should be fine) and add them to both mixes.

Pour the meaty mix on the first tray, spread it and sprinkle generously the cheddar on top of it. Add the remaining cheese to the veggie mix and crack an egg into it to bind. Stir well, pour and spread it on the second puff pastry. Put both in the oven for ca. 35 minutes, until the pastry is golden and crispy.
