The cheese I used is called ‘Ost Lagrad’ and is from Sweden. Swiss, Emmentaler, or Jarlsberg would all be similar enough to substitute, or you could experiment with anything that sounds tasty.

 

This recipe is also delicious with the addition of 1/4 cup diced potato.

 

Preheat the oven to 350┬░.

 

The oven safe ramekin shown holds about 10 ounces/300 mL.

Add the water and continue mixing until it comes together as a dough. Use just enough water to collect up the flour.

Press the dough to form a shell in the ramekin.

Stab it with a fork so that it bakes properly. Without these holes air can be trapped between the dough and ramekin that misshapes the shell.

 

Bake the shell for about 15 minutes.

 

While the shell is baking mix together the filling.

Gently stir in the cheese.

It may be tempting to put the cheese and onions into the shell and pour the egg over, but that results in a layer of cheese and onions topped with scrambled eggs, which just isn’t as good.
