Caramelized Onion and Goat’s Cheese quiche

Caramelized Onion and Goat’s Cheese quiche Recipe

Quiche is a savory open flan made of pastry crust filled with eggs, milk or cream, and cheese, meat, seafood or vegetables. Quiche can be served hot or cold. It is part of French cuisine but is also popular in other countries, particularly as party food. 

I am making Caramelized onion goat’s cheese quiche with chives.

Tips:

  1. For savory short crust fat is always half the amount of flour.
  2. You should rest the pastry for 20 minutes in the fridge before rolling it, also rest it 10 minutes in freezer before baking.
  3. In blind baking beans should be on top of the tart , this way it will bake properly.
  4. You can use any flavoring in royale like mustard, paprika, salt, pepper.
  5. When filling the pastry with royale, make sure it will not come out of it. It should be just on the level of the pastry. If it came out, it will stick your pastry with the pastry case as a glue. That will get you in trouble when you take out the pastry from the pastry case.
