Using tuna instead of bacon means it is healthier and helps you towards your recommended weekly quota of oily fish.

Sonia explains:

Line a flan dish with 6 oz of shortcrust pastry - this can either be bought ready made or you can make by hand or in a food processor.

Simply put 125g/40z of plain flour, 55g/2oz of cubed butter and a pinch of salt into a bowl. Rub the mixture with your fingertips until it resembles breadcrumbs then stir in enough cold water, using a knife, to bind the dough together. For perfect pastry, wrap in clingfilm and chill for 15 minutes before rolling out.

Once you have lined your flan dish, bake blind for about 20-30 mins. on Gas 5/6.

Remove flan dish from oven when just starting to brown a little.

While the flan is cooking, beat 2 eggs and half pint milk in a jug with a little seasoning. Put to one side.

Strain a can of tunafish in brine, then flake this into the flan. Add about 3-4 oz strong cheddar cheese (grated), mix into the tunafish. Then slowly pour over the egg/milk mixture, and

return flan dish to the oven for a further half hour or until nicely brown on the top. Remove from oven and leave to cool and settle for 15mins.

Eat either hot or cold. served with a fresh salad.
