Recipe type: Breakfast
Serves: 4-6
  • 1 chopped onion
  • ⅔ cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • ½ cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1 package of real bacon pieces (found on the salad dressing aisle)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup half & half
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • salt
  • pinch of sugar
  • pepper
  • 1 deep dish pie crust, homemade or frozen
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In small skillet, heat chopped onions over medium heat with olive oil, ½ teaspoon of salt and a pinch of sugar. Stir regularly to keep any of the onions from getting too brown. Cook these at least until they're tender, and until they're as caramelized as you prefer.
  3. While the onions cook, mix the cheeses and bacon together in a bowl, then pour evenly into the pie crust.
  4. Once the bowl is empty, use it to mix the eggs and half & half along with ½ teaspoon of salt and ¼ teaspoon of pepper.
  5. Pour the caramelized onions over top of the cheese and bacon, spreading evenly.
  6. Slowly pour the egg mixture over the top of the other ingredients. Do not pour too quickly or it won't have enough time to absorb and it may overflow the edges of your pie crust.
  7. Bake for 60 minutes, or until the middle of the quiche has set and the top is slightly golden.
