Haven’t made quiche for a while and suddenly though I would today. Followed a Mary McCartney recipe online - you caramelised the onions (I used 1/2 red and 1/2 white) with Balsamic vinegar and a tiny bit of sugar. I made whole meal pastry. Just thought I’d share, as it’s very tasty smile. wine

Looks lovely, must try that!

I may try that!

Yesterday I cheated and we had one which was bought and had been in the freezer since Christmas! It just wasn't the same as home-made but needed to be eaten up - yours looks lovely.

I had a slice of a delicious onion and goats cheese quiche recently. Yummy. Lovely crispy cheese pastry too. (Drool)

That looks gorgeous. I could just fancy some....

Thanks Lisagran, it looks good. What size dish did you use and did you precook the pastry case?

Oh that looks delicious---lovely grub.

I do a similar quiche, caramelised red onion and gruyere cheese. I bake the case blind beforehand. No-one's ever complained!

I could make a serious dent in that! Any chance of the recipe please Lisagran?

I usually bake the base blind so as to avoid having a soggy bottom.

Chewbaca, I googled it and found the recipe quite easily. Sorry, can't do links on this. I'd forgotten it is called 'baking blind'. I don't think I have done this for about forty years!

It sounds delicious, but my pastry is like leather.
I could do the filling ok.

Lisagran Sun 07-Apr-19 21:04:18

I remember now that I used a mix of two recipes - because I like to bake the pastry blind and because I fancied the caramelised onions
