Method

  1. Sift the flour and a pinch of salt into a large bowl. Add the butter and rub in until it resembles breadcrumbs. Stir in the icing sugar, egg yolk and 3 tbsp cold water, then quickly bring together to form a firm dough. Wrap well in cling film and allow to rest for 20 mins in the fridge.

  2. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface and line a deep 23cm tart tin. Cover with baking parchment and fill with baking beans. Cook for 20 mins, then remove the paper and beans and cook for 5-10 mins more until the tart case is pale and sandy in texture (see p14 for tips on making and baking pastry).

  3. Remove and turn the oven down to 160C/140C fan/gas 2. Spread the base of the tart with the potatoes, onions and cheddar. Whisk together the eggs, milk and cream, then season. Pour into the tart case and cook for 40-45 mins or until just set. Remove, cool on a wire rack then serve.

This was yummy, warm on the same day and cold for lunch the following. I used 300 ml of double cream and 3 eggs. I also put the tart under a grill for the final couple of minutes to achieve a nice, golden color on the top. Delicious, will definitely be making it again.

Fabulous! Having a glut of spring onions and potatoes in my garden this recipe was off to a good start. I, like many others found I had to much mixture for one base so made two. I split the mixture then added a few more potatoes to fill each base. I also didn't have any montgomery cheese so used parmisan reggiano. This had my taste buds tingling as I could smell it cooking, so when it had cooled enough to eat we decided to give it a try. Which resulted in half of the first one being eaten! Need I say more.

This was lovely - I cheated by using a ready made pastry case and just made half of the filling mixture. Incredibly easy and everyone loved it. Next time I'll make it from scratch.

Gorgeous!! Wow, this recipe is one that immediately made my all-time best recipe list. Fabulous and imaginative use of seasonal produce. I agree with TimandDebs, when I read the recipe I knew it would be too much. I used baby potatoes, one buch of onions and 300ml of double cream with 2 eggs and it was perfect. Tastes even better outdoors!

This was absolutely gorgeous and it is a good job as I have so much filling left! There is no way I could have fit it all in a 23cm tin. I will make up another batch of pastry tomorrow to use it up. I'm guessing there is enough for another 20cm tart

A fantastic party quiche. I made it for our Royal wedding picnic and again for my friends surprise 60th birthday party. It cut well into a good many pieces and everyone loved it. I will use the pastry recipe for all my tarts in future.

Delicious, I couldn't get Montgomery cheddar so used Green's of Glastonbury from Waitrose, it worked really well.
