Feta Cheese Flan Recipe

Today's recipe has been a favourite in our household since I can remember, mainly because it takes so little time and effort (there's a bit of a theme going on here with my recipe posts...).  I used shortcrust pastry this time (and I cheated) but you can also use puff pastry if you'd prefer.


Feta Cheese Flan


  • 1 roll of pastry (or make it yourself to fit a standard sized baking tray!)
  • 1 block of feta cheese
  • 1 large red pepper
  • 1 medium onion
  • 1/2 a courgette
  • A sprig of rosemary
  • Pepper


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180°C (356°F).
  2. Place your pastry onto a baking tray and score a border around the edges (approx. 2cm).
  3. Chop your cheese into chunks and slice your vegetables thinly.
  4. Place the cheese, vegetables, rosemary and pepper onto your pastry.
  5. Bake in the oven
