Used bought puff pastry and blind baked first for 15 minues before adding filling. Very tasty. Will make again.

This was a complete triumph. I used ordinary common or garden smoked Bacon instead of the ham, and fried it off, diced, to begin with. I also used Ricotta for the soft cheese and grated a little strong cheddar over the top, before the blue cheese. Because I had rather a lot of filo pastry, I put a "lid" of a doubled over sheet of pastry on the top and found that this served to stop the top becoming too "crusty" - as I have a 10yo with a "thing" about baked cheese. ~rolls eyes~ He has also sworn never to eat blue cheese. I haven't the heart to tell him he already has! :-)

Forgot to say - i dont like hot ham so used oak smoked bacon instead - delicious with the blue cheese x

I have been making 'quiches' for years and they are always extremely popular and gone in minutes. However after making this recipe I dont think I would ever make a traditional quiche again with shortcrust pasrty but would add my own fillings to this filo pasty base. This particular recipe is really tasty, light and none of the greasiness you sometimes get with quiches, even my teenagers who dont like blue cheese enjoyed this and asked for more!! There wasnt any left though so would double the recipe and make it in a larger quiche dish rather than a spring form tin next time, which will be for family and friends over christmas x
