125 ml finely grated Parmesan cheese

a pinch of cayenne pepper

1 egg

For the filling

500 ml Full fat yoghurt

250 ml strong cheddar cheese – grated

5 eggs

salt and pepper – just remember the biltong and cheese are already salty

150g sliced beef biltong

1 large onion – chopped and caramelized in a little butter

fresh herb of your choice (Basil is my favourite!)




Preheat the oven to 180 C.

For the crust

Place all the ingredients in a food processor and blitz until it just comes together. Spray a loose bottom quiche pan with oil and press the almond mixture into the pan. Chill in the fridge for a few minutes.

For the filling.

Mix all the ingredients, except the biltong and pour into the pastry case. Now scatter the caramelized onion and biltong over the custard mixture. Bake in a preheated oven to golden perfection. Serve with fresh rocket and sliced tomato!
