1 small brown onion
1 ½ cups cooked rice
½ cup grated cheddar cheese
1 tablespoon butter
Directions to Cook:
Preheat oven to 180°C.
Grease the sides and base of a 23cm spring form pan. Line the base with a circle of baking paper. Finely dice onion and sauté in melted butter over low-medium heat until soft. Cool slightly.
Combine all ingredients in a medium-sized bowl and mix thoroughly. Press mixture firmly into the base of the prepared pan and bake for 10-15 minutes or until base is set. Remove from oven. Cool slightly.
Follow the rest of your quiche recipe as per instructions.
Note: You can cook this recipe in a deep-sided pie dish if preferred - when the quiche topping is added to the base, a little of the egg mix can sometimes run out the sides of the spring form pan. I put the pan on top of a foil lined pizza tray to prevent any egg dripping into the oven.
