DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F or 180°C.
  • Lay the sheet of pastry dough over a 9-inch quiche pan, pressing the dough gently into the crimped edges. Cut away any excess dough so the pastry is level with the top of the pan.
  • Prick the base of the pastry with a fork.
  • Lay half the sliced tomatoes evenly over the pastry. Scatter half the cheese and chopped basil over the tomatoes. Repeat with the rest of the tomatoes, cheese and basil.
  • Mix the eggs and cream together and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Pour carefully over the other ingredients in the pastry shell, leaving a little space for the mixture to rise slightly in the oven.
  • Bake in the oven for 40-45 minutes or until the egg mixture is cooked and set.
  • Let stand for 5 minutes before cutting.
  • Serve hot or cold!
