i wanted a quiche the other day, a gooey cheese and broccoli quiche. coming up empty handed on the broccoli; the only veggie available was an onion. i had a caramelized onion quiche years ago at this quaint pie shop and bakery, and remembered how much i enjoyed it; so naturally i set out to make a caramelized onion quiche. here it is with a pre-made gluten-free crust. it was pretty tasty with the added gruyere cheese. happy sunday. xx, dana
1 onion sliced, sautéed until caramelized in olive oil
2 cups heavy cream or half and half
1 cup shredded gruyere
salt and pepper to taste
1 ready-made pie shell
heat oven to 425 degrees. fill bottom of pie shell with the cheese and onions. whisk eggs, cream, salt and pepper; pour over the cheese mixture. place the quiche on a baking sheet to prevent spills and bake for 12-14 minutes at 425 degrees. reduce heat to 325 degrees and bake 35-45 minutes longer.
