Sun-dried tomatoes, vienna sausages, caramelised onions and cheddar cheese quiche

easy quiche
Easy yummy quiche with sun-dried tomatoes, caramelised onions, vienna sausages and cheddar cheese.

A yummy, any time of day quiche which is super easy to make and very tasty. With a variety of flavours, sweet, sour and savoury. Sun dried tomatoes, vienna sausages, caramelised onions and of course some cheddar cheese on top to make the quiche extra yummy. I even included some herbs in the crust to enhance the saltiness of the quiche.

Ingredients
For the crust:
1 to 1 and a half cups flour
half a cup butter
a pinch of salt
a teaspoon of mixed dried herbs
3-4 tbs cold water

For the filling:
3 eggs
half a cup of full cream milk
a pinch of salt
some pepper to taste
4-5 sun-dried tomatoes
one onion – caramelised
2-3 vienna sausages, cut into small pieces
half a cup grated cheddar cheese

Method
To prepare the crust, add the flour, butter, salt and dried herbs to a bowl and mix and rub the butter with your fingertips until it looks like breadcrumbs. Add the cold water and form a ball with the dough. Wrap the dough with cling film/glad wrap and refrigerate for 10-15 minutes.

When the dough is ready, add to a round quiche dish, pressing the dough down in the bowl to cover the bottom and the sides of the dish.

In a new bowl whisk the eggs with the milk. Add some salt and pepper.

Add the onions to the unbaked crust, then the sun-dried onions and pieces of sausage. Then pour the milk and eggs mixture over the ingredients. Lastly, sprinkle the cheddar cheese over the dish.

Bake for 30-35 minutes at 180 degrees Celsius.

Enjoy for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner.
