Cheese and onion pie
Never be without a meal, this pie cost around £1.75 to make and will feed 4
This is a really simple pie to make, usually I make it when I have some pastry left over from making other pies, sometimes it is hot water crust, sometimes short crust.
The cheese is more or less ay cheese you have, you can mix cheeses if you like, if I have some halloumi left I give it a wash and add it in small chunks to the grated cheese – which is usually cheddar.
The other thing about this pie is you needn’t worry too much about measures. So long as you have enough to fill the pie, the cheese does the job.
I usually bake this on a deep aluminium plate.
Around 250 g pastry (See here for our hot water crust Recipe)
Around 200 g cheese of your choice
1 finely chopped onion
1/2 tsp white pepper
Mix the ingredients in a bowl.
Grease an aluminium plate and roll out the base and the lid, adding the base to the plate.
Add the filling and secure the lid.
Bake at 180 C for around 30 minutes.
