Caramelized Onion and Cheese Quiche

16 Jun

caramelized onion and cheese quiche

This is a reliable outstanding standby.

One deep dish pie pan. Do not use a regular pie dish because the filling will not fit.

One pie crust, rolled out to fit the dish with a small edge.

6 eggs

2 cups light cream

pinch of nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper

2 sliced onions

Two tablespoons butter

1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper

1/2 teaspoon sugar

3 slices white american cheese

3 slices muenster cheese

3 slices yellow cheddar

3 slices swiss cheese

3 slices Hoffman’s cheddar cheese

Put the onions, butter, salt, pepper and sugar in a pan and slowly caramelize the onions.  This takes at least twenty minutes. Cook them slowly because they will burn and you do not want that flavor.

Heat the oven to 400 degrees.

Place the pie crust in the pie pan.

Layer all the cheese.

Put the onions on top.

Mix the eggs with the cream, salt, pepper and nutmeg.

Whip the eggs very well but not frothy.

Pour the eggs on top of the onions.

Place the pie plate on the bottom rack in the oven.

Bake for one hour or until the pie stops jiggling.

Better to over cook the quiche then to under cook it.

I served this with the BLT Salad, a toasted crumpet and fresh fruit.

It was a pretty good brunch if I have to say so myself.

Asparagus Quiche

4 Mar

Asparagus Quiche

Talk about easy.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

One deep dish pie crust. I use the refrigerated rolled up ones.

4 large eggs

2 cups light cream or milk

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1/8 teaspoon nutmeg

1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese plus more for the top when finished cooking

One bunch of cooked asparagus

Three slices American cheese

Three slices Provolone cheese

6 ounces grated Swiss cheese

Line the pie plate with the pie crust

Add  the cheese except the Swiss

Arrange the asparagus so it looks pretty

Whip the eggs, milk, nutmeg , salt and pepper

Pour half  over the asparagus and cheese

Now add the Swiss cheese

Add the remaining egg mixture

Fill to the very top and carefully place on the bottom shelf in the oven.

Bake till the center is not jiggly for about 45  minutes or more.

When the pie comes out of the oven, sprinkle it with the remaining parmesan cheese.

This is great with a cup of soup and a salad.
