  • 12 back bacon rashers
  • 50 g chorizo, sliced
  • 1 medium red onion, very thinly sliced
  • 1 red pepper, cored and cut into thin strips
  • 50 g mature Cheddar grated
  • 4 T garlic chives, chopped
  • 6 large free-range eggs
  • 1⁄2 cup milk
  • 1⁄2 cup cream
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 30 g Parmigiano Reggiano finely grated

Cooking Instructions

Preheat the oven to 180°C.

Dry-fry the bacon and chorizo for 4 minutes, or until the fat is rendered but not crispy. Remove from the pan. 2 In the same pan, sauté the onion and pepper for 3 minutes, then set aside to cool.

Place 2 rashers of bacon into six cavities of a muffin pan, covering the base and sides. Fill the remaining cavities with water so they don’t burn.

Mix the chorizo with the onion, pepper, cheese and chives. Divide between the 6 prepared muffin cavities.

Whisk the eggs, milk and cream in a jug and add a pinch of salt and black pepper. Pour equal amounts into the muffin pan and sprinkle with Parmigiano Reggiano.

Bake for 15–20 minutes, or until cooked through. Cool for a few minutes, then remove from the pan.

Chef's note: “Crustless bacon, egg and cheese tartlets are wonderfully versatile – chop and change ingredients as you please.”
