4 small quiche dishes (approx. 15 cm)
- For the quiche dough, sift the flour, cut the cold butter into pieces and work quickly into a smooth dough with a pinch of salt and some water. Depending on the flour, add more or less butter or water. Wrap the dough in cling film and leave to rest for approx. 20 min. in the refrigerator.

- Grease the quiche dishes. Roll out the dough, cut into four and lay in the dishes. Press down on the edges and cut away any excess. Coat the bottom with a few breadcrumbs.
- Whisk together milk, cream and eggs. Season with salt, pepper and nutmeg. Spoon the onion and ham mix into the dishes and top with the egg and milk mixture.
- Bake in a pre-heated oven (200°C) on the bottom shelf for approx. 30 min. Serve hot, garnished with walnuts.
