Notes

  • Note 1 dried onion can be found in the herbs and spices aisle at the supermarket. It is easy to cook with, provides great flavour but doesn't involve the time and tears regular onions do. 
  • Note 2 The size of your baking dish WILL make a difference for this recipe. I used a small baking dish with the following dimensions, 28 x 17.5 x 5 cm (shown in the photos). The actual type of dish won't matter ie you could use a skillet, a baking tray, a slice tray. BUT, the recipe is designed so that you get a thickish piece of slice. If you use a bigger tray than the one I did, you will get a thinner slice. You can use a smaller one ( ie my skillet is 26cm, but when I use that I only do 6 eggs). I would recommend you use something similar to the measurements in either of these 2 dishes. Obviously don't run out and buy anything just for one recipe or because you worry it needs to be that size. There is flexibility in the recipe for different uses of dishes, but what would not be a good idea is for you to use a 35 cm casserole dish for example. It will be too large and your slice will be as thin as an omelette. If using a much smaller baking tray or slice tray, you can use 6 eggs and if you fo this, then use ½ cup cheese and ½ cup cream.
  • Note 3 Egg slices are notoriously difficult to cut when they are hot. You are best off removing the slice from the oven and leaving it to cool for a few mins (5) before you cut it. This will make your slice pieces more presentable and the same for your slice edges.
