Issue 13 - Eggs - Cheese and Onion Quiche

Eggs: Birds eggs have been eaten for thousands of years, with different varieties including duck, goose, guinea fowl, gull or even ostrich. However, the most popular in the UK is the chicken egg, with us consuming a massive 29 million each day.

There's no getting away from them, because it's eggs that make nice things like mayonnaise, custard, lemon curd and meringues possible.

Cheese and Onion Quiche.

This is effectively a souffle in a pastry case and will put any supermarket quiche to shame. For maximum effect serve straight from the oven, but 5 minutes cooling will make it easier to eat although it will sink a litle. As it needs a relatively short time in the oven, it makes a nice summer meal served with a mixed salad and baby potatoes.

Serves 4.
Oven at 180 degrees C, or slightly lower for a fan oven.

Large shortcrust pastry case - either ready made from the chiller cabinet, or home made and blind-baked first for 20 minutes.
3 large eggs
Small, finely chopped onion
150ml of single cream
100 - 150g of strong cheddar cheese - grated
Olive oil
Salt & Pepper to taste

1. Fry the onion in the olive oil until soft and slightly browned.
2. Break the eggs into a jug, pour in the cream and add the salt and pepper. Beat well for a minute until the mixture is smooth.
3. Put a layer of half the cheese and all the fried onion into the pastry case.
4. Gently pour the egg mixture into the case, then sprinkle the remainder of the cheese on top.
5. Put into the oven straight away and cook for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown on top.

What you've been saying about All Things Local...

“ Having previously wasted a lot of money on advertising in magazines without any success I was wary about going in “All Things Local" which was recommended to me by a friend, but having met Karyn the editor and realising that she was as passionate about her magazine as I am about personal training I decided to give it a go. Karyn produces a professional, well written magazine crammed with useful stuff, and most important provided me with clients. Keep up the good work“
