Caramelised Onion and Goat Cheese Quiche

This is good warm or cold, with a side salad.  You can make this more complicated if you wish by making your own pastry crust – I can’t be bothered today so I am using pre-packaged shortcrust pastry.

To make this extra pretty, I took the chive flowers I had growing in the garden and plucked them apart.   I sprinkled them on as the quiche came out of the oven.  They add a chive flavor, without the green bits 🙂

  • 1/2 pack of shortcrust pastry (you’ll want to roll it out such that it is very thin)
  • 2 large onions
  • 2 eggs
  • pancetta (optional – if you leave it out, substitute 1 tbsp olive oil or butter, you could also use some of the oil from those sundried tomatoes from a few weeks back.)
  • 75 g goat cheese
  1. Roll out your pastry.   Once it’s to the size you want, sprinkle with your choice of seasonings (I used paprika, cayenne pepper, celery salt, and a pinch of marjoram).   Roll again, just enough to press the seasonings into the pastry.
  2. Place pastry seasonings side up in a tart pan, and puncture with a fork.   Blind bake until golden.
  3. In a pan, fry up the pancetta until it renders some fat.   Add the thinly sliced onions and fry until caramelised.   Scatter onions and pancetta in the bottom of the pastry case.
  4. In a bowl, whisk up the eggs with a generous grinding of pepper.
  5. Pour over the onion and pancetta mix.    Crumble the goat cheese on top of this.
  6. Bake in a warm oven (175ish) until the egg mixture sets.
  7. Enjoy!
