For the pastry
For the filling
Preheat the oven to 180C. Make the pastry by mixing the four, salt and butter together until they resemble fine breadcrumbs. Add the egg and mix together then add enough cold water to form a dough. Roll out on a lightly floured surface to 1/4cm thick and use it to line a 22cm quiche tin. Blind bake for 20 minutes then turn the oven to 170C.
Whilst the pastry is blind baking make the filling. Heat the butter in a frying pan the cook the garlic and onion for 3 minutes. Add the bacon to the pan and cook for another 3-4. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs, milk, salt and pepper then add the tomatoes, feta and bacon mix. Pour into the pastry case, sprinkle with chives and cook in the oven for 40 minutes until golden and set.
