Bacon & Mushroom Tartlets

2 eggs, lightly beaten

275ml milk

100g Cake Flour

Pinch of Salt

Pinch of Nutmeg

4 tsp (20ml) butter

1 tbsp (15ml) sunflower oil

8 pieces of streaky bacon, cut in half

8 button mushrooms, cut into thin slices

Black pepper to taste

1 tsp (5ml) dried thyme

Method

  1. Lightly beat the eggs and the milk together.
  2. Sift the flour and the salt together in a mixing bowl. Make a hole in the middle and add the egg mixture. Use a wooden spoon to mix the ingredients in circles starting from the inside and working towards the outside. Mix until it becomes a smooth batter.
  3. Add the nutmeg and oil. The batter should be the same consistency as a thick cream but add a little bit of milk if your batter is too thick. Leave the batter to rest for at least an hour.
  4. Preheat the oven to 220˚C and us the butter to grease 4 x oven bake dishes that are about 15cm in diameter
  5. Heat the oil in a pan and fry the bacon until crispy. Add the mushrooms. Season with black pepper & Thyme and cook until the mushrooms are soft.
  6. Divide the mushroom & bacon mixture between the oven dishes and pour the batter over the mixture, dividing it equally. Bake for 10 minutes or until the tartlets are golden brown. Serve immediately
