My father made this while I was growing up for family who didn't like ham. I have never served it to someone who didn't love it and beg for the family recipe after. We always make two and freeze one for later.

1/4 onion, diced
1 (375ml) tin evaporated milk

Place 250g of cheese cubes, onion, eggs and evaporated milk into a blender. Season with salt, pepper, garlic powder, parsley and sage, then blend until smooth. Spread salmon over the pie shell. Sprinkle 1/4 cup (30g) of grated cheese then pour the egg mixture on top. Top with the remaining 1/4 cup (30g) of grated cheese.
Cook in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean, about 30 minutes.
You can use fresh garlic if you don't have garlic powder.
