Onion Quiche

(6 servings)

  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • 1 large onion - diced
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 1/3 cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • 1 9-inch unbaked store-bought pie crust
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 dash cayenne pepper
In large frying pan over medium heat, saute the onions - stirring often - until softened and nearly transparent. Remove from heat.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a medium mixing bowl, beat the eggs with the cream and salt. Mix in the cheese.

Distribute the onions evenly over the bottom of the pie crust. Pour the egg mixture evenly over the onions.

Bake for 30 to 35 minutes - until a knife or toothpick inserted into the center comes out dry.

This is a great recipe to add on to. Try adding a 1/3 cup crumbled cooked bacon or sausage. Just add it to the egg mixture when you add the cheese.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank Bennett for this recipe.
