Last Saturday afternoon, my girl took out the leftover made-in-Australia shortcrust pastry that she bought from a supermarket in town to make some quiche…

…for our tea.

No wonder the pastry was so thin when she made her chicken pie that day – it was thin, very thin…

When I made my own, I would roll it out into the thickness that I desired and usually, it would be around half an inch thick, perhaps, as I loved eating the crusty, crumbly pastry with its delightful buttery fragrance, not just the filling alone.

She filled each of them…

…with bits of smoked bacon, thinly sliced button mushrooms (canned), lots of cheese, mozzarella and whatever else and put them in the oven to bake till the cheese had melted and they had all turned into a lovely light golden brown…

Yes, they were very nice and we all enjoyed them very much.

She said there was just a piece of the pastry left in the freezer. I wonder what she will do with it or perhaps, I can make something out of it the next time around. We’ll see.

  1. With smoked bacon, mushroom and cheese…you can never go wrong with these 3. 😀 Wish I could have some. *drooling*

    1. Nothing special, all ingredients easily available. We can’t get fresh button mushrooms here – have to used canned. Bet your missus can make anytime, even nicer!

  2. With all the ingredients in hand, looks like so easy to make. Looks so good. Great for tea break.

    1. Yes, the hardest part is probably to make the pastry, if you are making it from scratch. You handle too much, your ingredients a little bit out, it may be rather hard, not so nice. Happens to me sometimes. My missus can do it better.

  3. All my favourite in one. Really lovely.
    Once, I used mashed potato as base in the muffin tray, then add mushroom, bacon, cheese and egg on top, and bake them. Never thought of using pastry. But good to clear whatever in the house and make something nice out of them.

    1. Yes, sometimes we buy and we keep and keep…and ever so often, I would find stuff already past the expiry date and I would throw it away. So sayang.

      So far, we’ve never tried mashed potatoes as a base, just the cover as in our shepherd or cottage pies. Nice! I love mashed potatoes.

    1. Unfortunately, not this Australian brand – no butter in the ingredients. I prefer my own-made ones.

      Hello, Isaac. Nice to see you back. Haven’t seen you around for a while. Hope all is well at your end. Hope your missus and your boys and your loved ones are well too. Take care, God bless. #staysafe #staywell #stayhome
