Yields8 ServingsPrep Time20 minsCook Time1 hrTotal Time1 hr 20 minsCategory,


 5 medium onions
 2 shortcut or puff pastry
 1 tbsp butter or cooking spray (to sauté onion)
 2 eggs
 200 ml single cream
 1 tbsp thyme, dried
 ½ tsp salt
 ¼ tsp black pepper



Firstly, pre-heat oven to 200C​ and prepare by peeling and slicing onions to set aside​.

To make the savoury custard filling, combine egg, liquid cream, thyme, salt and black pepper in a bowl to a smooth consistency, set aside.​

Place rolled out pastry dough into a tart pan and cut off any extra on the edges. Poke into the pastry with a fork to create small holes. (this is to avoid the pastry deforming when baking blind). ​

Place a cut out round baking sheet, which is fitting into the tart base, and keep beans or pie weights on the round cut out baking sheet. ​

Bake the crust alone (called baking blind) for 15 minutes at 200C. ​

Heat up a pan with the butter and sauté onions soft. This can take 10-15 minutes​.

Place cooked onions into the quiche crust and spread out evenly.​

Pour savory custard mixture over the onions and bake quiche for 30 minutes at 200-220C. Serve and enjoy!
