Mum once tried to make a quiche, it didnt really go to plan and just added a pastry lid and the pie was born. Best eaten cold i think, no real measurements, just do it to whatever size pie dish you have


Serves: 4-8

  • shortcrust pastry (ready made)
  • potato (mashed, cold)
  • 2 onions (diced)
  • mature cheddar (a good amount, or mix it up with some blue cheese for extra strong taste)
  • 3 eggs (about)
  • egg (extra, for brushing the pastry)
