  • 250
    strong cheddar cheese - grated
  • 125
    soft butter
  • 1
    dry mustard
  • For the filling:
  • 2
    large potatoes - peeled and finely diced
  • 2
    arge onions - peeled and finely diced
  • Vegetable oil
  • 1/2
    smoked paprika

  • 250
    cream cheese
  • 1
    matured cheddar - grated
  • 125
    cream or milk
  • 6
    slices of Serrano or any other smoked ham
  • Fresh rocket for serving


Preheat oven to 180 °C.

Place the crust ingredients in a food processor.
Process until it comes together in a ball of pastry - rest for 20min(if you can).
Press dough out into a quiche pan.

Heat the vegetable oil in a pan and saute the onions and potato cubes until soft and cooked.
Let it cool slightly while you make the custard. 

In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs and milk/cream together.
Add the cream cheese and beat some more.
Add the cheddar cheese.

Now place the onions and potato on the base of the pastry shell and gently pour the custard over it.
Roll the ham in a rose-like fashion and place them  in  the custard so that when you cut a slice, each slice of quiche will have a piece of ham in it.

Bake in  for about 30-40 minutes until the filling feels firm to the touch.
Cool and serve with a side salad or some fresh rocket.

Chef's note:
Experiment with different cheeses or even different flavored cream cheese.
