Discover our recipe for cheese and onion quiche. This fuss-free creation bursts with flavour and can be savoured as a main dish or a delectable accompaniment. This recipe is incredibly easy to make, looks stunning and tastes delicious. It's perfect for a relaxed evening meal or a festive occasion like an Easter or Mother's Day brunch.

Step 01

Preheat the oven to 180°C (356°F). Use the pastry to line a 23cm tart tin, trimming it while leaving a small amount extending beyond the edges to account for shrinkage. Take some baking paper, scrunch it up, carefully smooth it out and place it over the pastry. Proceed to fill the tart shell with baking or dried beans.

Step 02

Bake blind for 10 minutes, then remove the paper and beans before baking for an additional 5 minutes. Use a knife to trim the pastry to an even level with the tart tin's edge, then allow it to cool.

Step 03

Melt a knob of butter in a pan and gently sauté the spring onions for 7-8 minutes or until they become tender. Allow them to cool.

Step 04

In a bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk until well combined. Stir in the cooled onions and cheese, then season the mixture. Pour it into the pastry case and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the filling is set and the top has a light golden hue.

How to serve it

Does quiche taste better hot or cold? There is no definitive answer, as quiches are equally delightful whether served hot or chilled. When served cold, they make a superb option for a light lunch, a sought-after addition to any buffet spread and an ideal choice for picnics.

To enhance the taste, consider garnishing your quiche with fragrant herbs, adding a dash of hot sauce or pesto, or accompanying it with a dollop of pico de gallo.
