Remember the saying “Real men don’t eat quiche”? That has long since been found to be incorrect. Quiche, both warm and cold is a family favorite, and is one of the easiest dishes for you to make. The addition of the onion and cheese just gives this quiche a little more flavor and body.
|Ingredients||serves 6 for lunch or 8 as a first course|
|Short-crust or puff pastry||225 gm|
|Whipping cream||300 ml|
|Onion (fried and chopped)||1 small|
|Cheese (grated)||60 gm|
|White pepper||½ tspn|
Roll the pastry and line a 22 cm quiche dish. Cut the rind from the bacon and cut into 2 cm strips and fry gently – do not make the bacon crisp. Remove and drain. Now press the bacon strips over the pastry.
In a bowl, beat the egg yolks then whisk in the cream, onion, cheese, salt and pepper.
Preheat an oven to 200 degrees Celsius. Pour in the whisked mixture and bake for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 180 degrees and cook for another 20 minutes.
Serve warm, or allow to cool and serve cold later.
