cafe style quiche

I found this recipe in a supermarket advertising magazine. It has become a firm family favourite, I don't think we could go back to our other quiche recipes after this one. I double this recipe for our family and make two quiches

Ham and Cheese Quiche (serves 4)
2 sheets of shortcrust pastry, partially thawed
1T olive oil
1 brown onion
100g triple smoked leg ham (if double smoked is cheaper I will buy this instead)
100g shaved Jarlsberg cheese chopped (cheddar cheese is fine too but doesn't have as rich a flavour)
3 eggs
1T plain flour
300ml pure cream

1. Preheat oven to 200C . Lightly grease a 24cm(base), loose based fluted quiche pan. Line with pastry, joining and overlapping edges where necessary. Trim off excess. Line with non-stick baking paper and fill with dried beans or rice. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove beans and paper. Bake for a further10 minutes or until light golden.

2. Heat oil in frying pan over a medium heat. Add onion and cook for 3 minutes or until soft. Cool.

3. Reduce oven temperature to 180C. place quiche pan on a baking tray.

4.Whisk eggs, flour and cream together in a large jug.

5. Layer half the onions, ham and cheese and pour over half the egg mixture, repeat layers and pour on rest of egg mixture.

6. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until set. Stand for 10 minutes before removing from the pan, transfer to a serving platter. Serve with a fresh garden salad.
