Cheese Quiche

Being in Switzerland at the moment, there’s no wonder all my dishes this week are packed with cheese.  This is no exception!

  • 1 lb (500 gr) grated Swiss cheese
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 3/4 cup half & half (or milk)
  • 1 Tablespoon flour
  • 2 Tablespoons ricotta
  • 1 egg
  • 1 onion – finely chopped
  • Pepper, salt, and nutmeg
  • 1 sheet puff pastry


  1. Fry the chopped onion for about 15 minutes at medium heat. Let cool.
  2. Mix the flour with a little bit of the milk first to make a paste.
  3. Add the rest of the milk, egg, ricotta, onion, salt, pepper and nutmeg.
  4. Mix the grated cheese with 1 teaspoon cornstach.  Add to the batter and mix well.
  5. Line a baking pan with parchment paper (baking). Place the puff pastry sheet and then add the cheese batter.
