Recently I decided to make a cheese and onion quiche to use up some double cream and eggs that I had about to go past their best. I love frugal recipes that use up leftover items in the fridge. This recipe is really simple and whether you’re catering for a party or just want something different for dinner this is going to be a real crowd pleaser! You can make your own pastry or use shop-bought if you’re looking to save time/effort.
The base of many good recipes can start with the most simple of ingredients. I love shortcrust pastry as it is super easy to use, freezable and can form the base of many different recipes. It takes just minutes to prepare and you can save around 60-70%, at least, compared to buying it ready made in the supermarket. I always find it surprising just how easy shortcrust pastry is to make!
