  • Make up the shortcrust pastry by following instructions on the pack

  • Cook the onion in a pan until soft, colourless and translucent
  • When cooked leave the onions to cool
  • Crack the eggs and milk into a jug and beat until all the eggs have been blended with the milk
  • Rub a small of oil onto a flan dish to prevent the pastry from sticking
  • Dust a small amount of flour over the oil, to provide a non-stick surface
  • Roll out the pastry on a flour dusted surface to the size of the flan dish
  • Leave an overlap on the dish as the pastry will shrink during cooking
  • Blind bake the pastry case in the oven for 10 mins
  • Trim the pastry case to remove excess trim pastry
  • Remove the pastry case from the oven and evenly spread over the cooked onion
  • Add grated cheese
  • Add a sprinkle of herbs, salt and pepper
  • Pour over the eggs mix over all the ingredients
  • Make sure all the ingredients are dunked in the egg mix or they will burn and taste bitter
  • Gently place the quiche in the oven
  • Cook until the quiche is golden brown and has an even wobble.
