  • 7
    ounces shortcrust pastry
  • 2 12
    ounces Stilton cheese, crumbled
  • 3

    ml single cream
  • 1

  • 14
    teaspoon mustard powder

DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas 5. Divide the pastry into 2 and roll each out to make 15cm rounds on a floured surface. Line 2 12cm quiche tins or pie dishes and prick the bases with a fork.
  • Put on a baking tray and blind bake for 10 minutes (loosely scrunch up tin foil and place over pastry). Remove the foil, turn oven down to 175c & return to oven for 5 more minutes.
  • Gently fry spring onions for 2-3 minutes Place half in each tin. Sprinkle half of the Stilton into each tin. Whisk egg, cream, salt and pepper in a jug and pour over the Stilton.
  • Return to oven and resume cooking for a further 20 minutes or until quiche is set and lightly golden on the top.
  • Serve warm or cold with salad.
