 1 onion
 1-2 tomatoes
 6 eggs
 100ml milk or cream
 150g grated cheese
 Salt and pepper

1

Make up some shortcrust pastry

2

Use half fat to flour and enough cold water to bind

3

So if using 400g plain flour you'd need 200g of fat ( I use a mix of butter and Trex ) rub the fat into the flour until it resembles breadcrumbs

4

add in the cold water and bring it together using a knife

5

When it forms a dough , form it into a ball wrap it in cling film and chill for at least 30 mins

6

Grease a flan tin

7

take pastry from fridge dust the work surface with a little flour and roll out the pastry to fit the tin leaving enough to overhang the sides

8

If your using a fluted tin use a piece of pastry to push it into the flutes

9

Prick the base of the flan with a fork , and chill again for 10 minutes

10

heat oven to 200C cover pastry with baking parchment top with baking beans , rice , pasta even coins and bake for 10 mins

11

remove baking paper and bake for another 5 minutes

12

Finely chop a medium onion and fry in a little oil until cooked but not coloured.Now trim your pastry . Slice a couple of tomatoes and put on the base of your quiche, mix 6 eggs , about 100ml of milk or cream season with salt and pepper. Stir in about 150 g grated cheddar and the softened onion . Pour into the pastry case and bake for 20-25 mins until golden and risen . If you want to add bacon or ham you can , or spinach or mushrooms or asparagus . Add what you like but the principles are the same
