In My Kitchen

There were some amazing spring onions in my CSA box this week!

It inspired me to make my Caramelized Onion Quiche.

It was sooo delicious I thought I would share my recipe.

You will need about 7-8 cups sliced onions & 6 tbls. butter.

Add them to a large skillet and cook over medium low heat, stirring occasionally until carmel colored.

It will take about 20 minutes or more.

While I am caramelizing the onions I make my pie crust.

I use my Grandmother's recipe.

Spread 2 tbls. dijon mustard on the bottom of the crust & bake for 9 minutes at 450 degrees.

This is what your onions should look like.

Once the onions are finished & while my pie crust is baking, I put 4 oz cream cheese & 1/2 cup milk in a blender and blend until smooth.

I add 5 eggs, some salt & pepper to the blender & blend.

Then I begin layering my filling.

1 cup of grated cheese.

The caramelized onions.

Top with another cup grated cheese & then add the egg mixture.

Bake at 350 for 35 - 45 minutes.

Check for a set center and a slightly browned top.

You can adjust this recipe and use any combination of veggies, meats, or cheese.

Some of my favorites are asparagus & red onion, spinach & bacon, or broccoli & ham.

This is by far one of my favorite things to make.

Only because I love eating it soo much!!!
