Tomorrow's tea is "Whitley Goose"

No picture....haven't made it yet!

450ml (¾ pint) Single Cream
110g (4oz) Cheddar Cheese, grated
4 Onions, whole, peeled
Black pepper

Pre-heat oven to 200°C; 400°F: Gas 6. Place the onions in a saucepan, cover with lightly salted water. Bring to the boil, simmer for 15-20 minutes or until tender. Remove from the heat. Roughly chop the onions, mix with half the cheese, season to taste. Butter an ovenproof dish, add the cream. Add the onion mixture, stir gently. Top with the remaining cheese. Bake for 20-30 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve with crusty bread.

......and as you can see from the ingredients list, not the slightest hint of anything feathery. Something very similar to this was a 'regular' on the family menu in my youth....Ma insists that it was called "Welsh Rarebit", I tend more towards the more prosaic "Cheese and Onion Pie" No matter, it was very tasty.....hope this recipe lives up to expectations!
