I found this recipe in a very old handwritten cookbook from Jamaica, left to me by great aunt. I was very scared to try this but its just superdoopa. Its a bit trial and error to get the oven right for your own oven. But this was made for an aga. Just keep checking after about 15 mins.


Serves: 4-6

  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • ½ cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 eggs
  • chile (a small bit finely chopped)
  • ½ small finely chopped onion
  • 1 finely chopped scallion
  • salt (to taste)
  • pepper (to taste)

  • Lightly fry chopped onion, scallion and chile with butter. Do not fry until golden.
  • Beats eggs and combine all the ingredients in one bowl.
  • Grease a oven proof dish and pour mixture into same and bake (at well the recipe says 350 c whatever that is) for about 20 mins or less. Do not overbake.
  • It also says it is essential the mixture comes almost to the top of the dish. I just love my aunt's bossy instructions in the book.
