  • Premade Shortcrust pastry roll
  • 1/2 Onion chopped
  • 2 Cloves of garlic chopped

  • To make the tart you want to start by baking the pastry. Grease up a tart or quiche tin and roll out the pastry into the tin. Prick with a fork, cover with greaseproof paper and fill with baking beans. Bake at 180c for 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and remove the paper and beans carefully.
  • Heat up the butter in a large pan and add in the onions and garlic. Cook for 5 mins. Add in the mushrooms and thin potato slices and cook for 5 mins.
  • Season well and add the salt and pepper. Add the flour and stir through well. Cook for a few minutes.
  • Pour the milk into a jug and whisk in the eggs. Pour into the pan with the vegetables and pour everything into the prebaked tart
  • Sprinkle the handfuls of cheddar cheese on the top and add the parsley. Mix through gently. Bake in the oven at 180c for approx 40-50minutes or until firm. Add a little tin foil to the top half way through to avoid burning the cheese.
  • Serve with some seasonal salad or freshly baked root vegetables.
