“I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love a good quiche. The best thing about this one is that there’s no fussing over making a crust from scratch, and it’s the perfect way to use up that bread you didn’t quite get to. A perfect brunch solution, and adaptable to any scraps you may have languishing in the fridge.” – Khanya Mzongwana

  • 1 loaf Woolworths farm-style bread
  • 5 free-range eggs
  • ½ cup pouring cream
  • 100 g white Cheddar, grated
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 200 g streaky bacon, fried until crispy
  • 50 g feta
  • 1 small red onion, sliced into wedges and roasted
  • 100 g Woolworths exotic tomatoes, halved
  • 4 T extra virgin olive oil, for drizzling
  • basil, to garnish

1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Lightly grease a baking tray with cooking spray, then lining with greaseproof paper. Place the bread on the tray. Using a bread knife, slice off the top of the loaf, leaving enough to make a deep “boat”.
2. Scoop out the bread on the inside until the crust remains. Take care not to scoop out too much bread, you don’t want a thin, hard crust. In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, cream, Cheddar and seasoning.
3. Arrange the bacon, feta, onion and tomatoes in the crust. Pour over the egg mixture. Bake for 30 – 35 minutes, or until the eggs are cooked and a light golden brown. Drizzle with olive oil and scatter with fresh basil. Serve immediately.
