Method

  1. Heat oven to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5. Roll out the pastry so it is large enough to fit a deep 23cm loose-bottomed tart tin, then line the tin with the pastry. Chill for 30 mins. Line the pastry with greaseproof paper, fill with baking beans and bake for 15 mins. Remove the paper and beans and return the tin to the oven for 5 mins until golden, then remove and set aside. Reduce oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4.

  2. Heat the butter and oil in a large frying pan, add the onions and potato and cook over a very gentle heat for 10-15 mins, turning occasionally, until golden and tender. Season if you want to, then add the garlic and thyme leaves, and cook for a further 3 mins. Tip into the pastry case along with the goat’s cheese and spread out evenly.

  3. Whisk the eggs and crème fraîche together, season if you want to, then pour into the pastry case and bake for 30-35 mins until lightly golden brown and just set in the centre. Serve warm, with rocket leaves scattered over if using.

Regarding freezing quiche - why can some be frozen and some not? How do i know if i can freeze my own recipe quiche? Also, some instructions say that they should be defrosted before re-heating/baking and some say cook direct from frozen, does anyone know why this is? I'm thinking of cooking and freezing some pies for my wedding in may but am travelling to the venue on the friday and won't be cooking until sat so there will be a period before it's cooked and i don't want to poison anyone....!

Great recipe, even my picky one year old devoured it! Made 3 times now, last time replaced potato with butternut squash I needed to use up which was delicious. Have also made into mini-quiches by cutting pastry into circles and baking in muffin tin. Fab!

This is simply devine. I made it yesterday but added pancetta cubes too and as I'm lactose intolerant could only get sour cream instead of crème fraîche . Hmmmmm. I'll certainly be making it again! I'll add a bit more thyme though as the flavour didn't come through. I preboiled the potatoes like some on the commentators suggested but that wasn't such a good idea, I think. They were quite soft making stirring difficult at the end. I think they'll cook through thoroughly on low heat.

This is an absolutely delicious tart and one I will definately be making again! I completely cooked the potatoes first in a pan as I didn't want to risk them being undercooked. I used sliced new potatoes with skins on.

Made this as per recipe to serve as part of a laid back buffet lunch for family and friends. It was loved by all, even those who are not massive fans of goats cheese. Served with a homemade beetroot chutney on the side.

Really easy and very tasty, but I always find lining a tin with pastry so fiddly! Put the tin on a baking tray to avoid oven spillages and help to bake the tart base.
