Quite a while ago we watched a cookery programme called 'The Good Cook' and on it one week, he made a cheese and onion pie. The recipe can be found here
We thought we'd give
it a go and see how it tasted. It was quite nice but the pastry is
far too short so shall use my own version another time. Also, as I was
using up a mixture of 4 cheeses rather than the Lancashire
recommended, shall also try that next time as well.
First of all the
onions had to be fried in butter quite slowly and for a long time
until they were soft and cooked without being browned. Then left to
Next the pastry was
made and used to base line a tin.The onions were
divided in half and half put on top of the pastry.
Then followed by a
generous amount of pepper and half the grated cheese. This was
then repeated (I forgot the second lot of pepper). No salt is needed
as there is enough in the cheese.
The pastry lid was
applied and it was cooked.
Next time, we think it needs a little
longer as it was not as brown nor the cheese as molten as his (could
have been the combination of my cheeses). Also, his pie when cut held
together, mine slightly fell apart, hence the need to use normal rather that ultra
short pastry next time.
