Stilton, butternut squash and fig quick quiche


  1. Preheat the oven to 220C.
  2. Place the pastry in a tart tin, pushing the pastry well into the corners.
  3. Place a piece of baking paper on top then cover with baking beans or rice, pushing them into the corners too. Bake for 20 minutes, or until the pastry is pale golden and sandy to touch.
  4. Mix the eggs and cream together and pour into the pastry shell. Sprinkle over the butternut squash and stilton and dollop with the chutney.
  5. Bake for 25 minutes, or until set. Leave to rest for 5 minutes before slicing.
