Granny's Cheese and Onion Pie

for a 7-8 inch pie dish you will need:
1 Packet of ready rolled short crust pastry or
200g self raising flour
100g marg or marg and lard mix
enough water to bind.
chill in fridge for an hour.

1 large onion peeled and thinly sliced
about 200-300 g strong cheddar [depends how much you nick as you make the pie]
2 large eggs beaten
salt and ground white pepper

here we go.

Heat oven 180' [now there's a surprise Grandad reckons I cook everything at 180!!!]
Roll out half the pastry and line the dish
place a layer of onion then a layer of cheese.
Season with the S&P
Now another layer of onion and then chesse. Season this layers.
Pour over the beaten eggs and top with the remaining pastry.
Brush with any egg left over or a bit of milk
bake in the oven for about 25 minutes until as they say the pie is golden.
Enjoy....brilliant hot or cold
