Cheese and Onion Pie

Recipe by Daydream
YIELD: 1 pie




  • Preheat oven to 375F (190C).
  • Line an oven tray with baking paper and set aside.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet and saute the onions over medium heat for 5- 7 minutes, or until golden and soft.
  • Transfer to a bowl and allow to cool for 10 minutes, before adding the cheese, parsley, mustard and Worcestershire sauce.
  • Mix well, then add 1 beaten egg to the bowl, with salt and pepper to your taste, and mix well again.
  • Using a cake pan or dinner plate as a guide, cut each sheet of pastry into a 9 inch (23 cm) circle.
  • Lay one sheet of pastry on the prepared baking tray.
  • Dollop the cheese mixture over the pastry base, piling it higher in the middle, and leave a narrow border around the edge.
  • Lightly brush the border with some of the second beaten egg.
  • Place the remaining sheet of pastry over the filling, stretching lightly if necessary to neatly fit the bottom sheet.
  • Press and seal the edges well.
  • Brush the top with the remaining beaten egg, and cut two slits in the top to allow the steam to escape.
  • Bake in the oven for 10 minutes, before reducing the heat to 350F (180C).
  • Cook a further 20-25 minutes or until pastry is crisp and golden brown.
