CHEESE AND ONION QUICHE


What is a Quiche??...an open pastry case, filled with a mixture of eggs, cream and other savoury (= not sweet) foods, which is baked and eaten hot or cold
pronounced as -/kēSH/
This delicious flaky pastry shell filled creamy savoury treat is a perfect accompaniment to your evening Tea or Coffee.

  • Onion-1 medium chopped
  • Heavy Cream-2 tbsp
  • Eggs-2
  • Cheese-1/2 cup grated
  • English mustard-1/2 tsp
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
For the pastry shell-
  • Sieve flour in a large bowl.
  • Rub in the butter till the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.
  • Add chilled water, a tbsp at a time till the whole thing comes together as a stiff dough.
  • Wrap in cling film and chill for 15 minutes.
  • Gently unwrap and roll out pastry, grease and flour one large tart pan or 4 individual pans.
  • Fit out the pastry and trim edges, return to chill for another 15 minutes.
  • In the meantime preheat oven at 200 C, bake  the cases for 15 minutes and take out.
For the filling-
  • Heat butter gently, and  add onions, let sweat.Turn off heat when pink.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients to the cooled onions, reserving only a little egg white.
