Ingredients

  • 12 sheets filo pastry
  • 4 bacon rashers, finely chopped
  • 2 corn cobs, husks and silk removed
  • 400g can creamed corn
  • 4 Coles Australian Free Range Eggs
  • Basil pesto, to serve
  • Baby rocket leaves, to serve

Method

STEP 1

Preheat oven to 180°C. Lightly grease six 10cm (base measurement) fluted tart tins with removable bases.

STEP 2

Place 1 filo sheet on a clean work surface. Fold in half lengthways. Spray with olive oil spray. Fold into thirds crossways to form a square. Repeat with another filo sheet. Spray with olive oil spray. Place 1 square over the other, turning slightly. Line 1 prepared tin with the pastry, gently scrunching the excess pastry. Place on a baking tray. Repeat with the remaining pastry and tins.

STEP 3

Bake for 8-10 mins or until light golden. Remove from oven. Use a clean tea towel to gently press down on the centre of pastry. Reduce oven to 160°C.

STEP 4

Meanwhile, heat a frying pan over medium heat. Add the bacon and cook, stirring, for 5 mins or until crisp. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel.

STEP 5

Use a small serrated knife to cut down the sides of the corn to release the kernels. Place in a heatproof bowl. Pour over enough boiling water to cover. Set aside for 2 mins. Refresh under cold water. Drain well.

STEP 6

Whisk the creamed corn and eggs in a large bowl. Add the corn kernels and bacon and whisk to combine. Pour evenly among the pastry cases. Bake for 25-30 mins or until filling is just set.

STEP 7

Transfer the quiches to a platter. Serve warm or at room temperature with basil pesto and rocket.
