Here’s another craving of mine (and dd) during the long holiday weekend….onion quiche. Quiche are just so versatile as you can have any filling you want thrown in. I normally like my onion quiche with some mushroom and ham but since dd hates mushroom, I decided to make do with onion and some hot dogs (I did not have any ham on hand).

Here’s the recipe for a 7 inch pan (feeds 4 pax):

Pie Pastry

  • 135 g all purpose flour
  • 100 g butter, chilled
  • 1 g salt
  • 50ml iced water

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine flour and salt. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. I took my butter right out of the freezer and used it immediately. Stir in water, a tablespoon at a time, until mixture forms a ball. You may not need to use all the water. For easier handling later, press the dough into a disc shape, wrap in plastic/cling wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  2. Remove dough from fridge and roll dough out to fit a 7 inch pie pan. Press the dough evenly into the bottom and sides of the pie pan. Do not stretch the dough as it will make the dough shrink during baking. Prick the bottom dough with a fork so that it minimizes the puff up during baking. 
  3. Chill the dough in the pan for 30 minutes.
  4. Line the dough with parchment paper; fill with pie weights or dried beans. Then, bake in preheated oven at 375 F or 190 C for 20-25 minutes or until it turns brown.

*For those who do not have time to make their own crust, you can try buying ready made crust from supermarkets. I’m not sure how good our local ones are here as I’ve never tried them myself.

Filling (for 7 inch pan)

  • 2 Onions, cut into small cubes
  • 1 hotdog/sausage, cut into small cubes
  • 80ml milk ( you may replace with whipping cream if you want a richer texture)
  • 3 eggs
  • 40g shredded cheddar cheese (or any other cheese you prefer)
  • 15 g butter (I use olive oil)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Over medium-low heat melt butter in a large saucepan. Add onions and cook slowly, stirring occasionally, until onions are soft. Lastly, add in hotdog cubes and give it a quick stir. 
  3. In a small bowl, beat together eggs and milk. Then, mix in onions.  Spread some shredded cheese onto the bottom of pastry. Pour egg and onion mixtures in and spread the rest of the shredded cheese on top.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 35 minutes, or until eggs have set. I normally like the top of the quiche to brown a little before I remove from oven.
