Halve the potatoes and boil in lightly salted water until tender. Drain, cool slightly and peel. Slice the potatoes thinly and set aside. Heat the oil and sauté the onion until glossy. Add the courgettes and sauté slowly until tender. Remove from the heat and cool slightly. Add the thyme. Whisk the eggs and milk together and season. Arrange a layer of potatoes and cheese in the bottom of the crust and cover with a layer of courgettes and onion. Pour half the egg mixture on top.
