Ingredients

Pastry

  • 350 g plain flour
  • 225g butter
  • 1 medium egg
  • 45g mixed Italian herbs
  • God pinch of Sea salt and cracked black pepper

Filling

  • 350 g plain flour
  • 225g butter
  • 1 medium egg
  • 45g mixed Italian herbs
  • God pinch of Sea salt and cracked black pepper
  • 3 white onions
  • 250g soft cheese
  • 4 eggs
  • 200g strong cheddar cheese
  • Sea salt & cracked black pepper to season

Method

  • STEP 1
    Place all pastry ingredients into a food processor with the large blade and blend until a soft 'dough' is formed. Drizzle chilled water in to help bind if needed.
  • STEP 2
    Roll pastry on a well floured, cold surface until around the thickness of a £1 coin. Line a deep (c.5cms) 25cms wide, fluted loose based flan tin with the pastry. Prick the bottom ( but don't go right through) Chill for 20 minutes or whilst preparing the filling.
  • STEP 3
    Fry 3 onions until softly browning and caramelised at the edges. Whisk 4 eggs with a pack of soft cheese, salt/cracked black pepper to season & the herbs. Lay the onions in the pastry base. Pour over the egg mixture. Sprinkle with generous layer of grated cheddar cheese.
  • STEP 4
    Bake 190 fan oven for c. 35 minutes until pastry browned, top brown and set firm but still slightly wobbly. Leave to cool for 30 minutes. EAT!
