Ingredients

  • 1 ¾ cups self raising flour
  • 50g chilled butter, cubed
  • 3 cooked bacon rashers, cut into small pieces
  • 1 spring onion, finely chopped
  • ¼ cup sundried tomatoes, finely sliced
  • 1 egg
  • 140mls cream
  • 50g pack Mainland Creamy Feta
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 egg, beaten
  •  

 

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius, fan bake. 
  2. In a food processor, blitz the flour and butter until a sandy, crumb texture forms. Pour into a mixing bowl. 
  3. To the flour mixture, add the bacon, spring onion, sundried tomatoes and seasoning. Stir to combine, then make a well in the centre. Add the egg and cream to the well, then use a fork to first whisk the egg and cream, but to then bring the dough together. 
  4. Turn out onto a floured surface, and sprinkle over 25g of the feta cheese. Bring together with your hands and form a ball. Use a rolling pin to flatten out to a 4-5cm depth. 
  5. Use a knife to cut the round into 8 wedges, then transfer to a lined baking tray, leaving space between each wedge. Brush with the beaten egg, then sprinkle over the remaining feta cheese. 
  6. Bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes, or until golden brown and risen. Serve warm with butter if desired.
