Mini Savory Cheesecakes

Mini Savory Cheesecakes could also be called quiches, but I  think the occasion calls for things to be a bit fancier than usual. You may have  all by now noticed that things changed here on My easy Cooking, definitely for the better! Our brand new site is much more interesting and dynamic than before and all the changes we have made and will still make, only have one goal and that is to make your visits on our site easier and more rewarding.

A change has been  in the pipeline for a long time, but to move 600+ posts with all the photographs from one platform to another and not leave something behind, was more daunting than I could ever imagine. It took two weeks of just slogging at it and here it is finally. I sincerely hope you like it! With Dinner Divas, traveling to foodie events and still doing recipe development for my most valued clients, posting had to take a bit of a back seat, but hopefully we are back on track and will now post regularly again.

In the last couple of months, I have done a selection of recipes for Mediterranean Delicacies  and I must say the convenience of always having a few tubs of their products in my fridge, is something I can get use to.  The last tub I had left from the batch they sent me, was a tub of Caramelized Onion Dip. The easiest thing would have been to just grab a packet of crisps and start eating, but I wanted to make something special to celebrate the launch of our new site!

Mini Savory Cheesecakes with Caramelized Onion

yields 12 mini cheese cakes


120 g Bakers Cheddars Biscuits – I used the cheese flavor

80 g butter melted

1 x 190 g tub Mediterranean Delicacies Caramelized Onion Dip

1 x 250 g creamed cottage cheese

100 ml chopped chives

6 eggs

250 ml grated cheddar cheese

2,5  ml salt

a few grindings of black pepper


Preheat oven to 180 C. Place the biscuits in a food processor and pulse to a fine crumb. Slowly add the melted butter and mix. Place a spoonful of the crumb mixture into  12 muffin moulds that you have sprayed with Spray n Cook! I used a pestle to press the crumbs down in the moulds. Mix all the other ingredients together  and pour into the prepared moulds. Bake  for about 15- 20 minutes until the cheesecakes are golden brown and all puffed up! Serve with caramelized onions and micro rocket leaves!

Caramelized Onion


3 medium onions – peeled and chopped

2 T vegetable oil

1 T butter

1 T balsamic vinegar

1 tsp sugar

salt and pepper to taste.


Heat the oil in a pan and add the onions. Saute until the onions start to brown and then add the butter and sugar and on a low heat, caramelize the onions until soft and sticky. Add the vinegar and sugar and allow to cook away. Taste and season accordingly.  Serve with the mini cheesecakes!
