Treat Tuesday #86...

Treat Tuesday:  Bacon-Cheese Quiche

*This is probably a tad bit late, but thought I would share this recipe anyway.

*We had this on Easter Sunday and it was delicious.  We actually had a mid-afternoon meal, but still did quiche.

*My wife found this online and it is from Martha Stewart.


*All-purpose flour, for rolling

*One homemade or store-bought single-crust pie dough

*One tablespoon unsalted butter

*Two cups medium diced yellow onion (from 1 large onion)

*Course salt and ground pepper

*Six large eggs

*3/4 cup heavy cream

*3/4 pound bacon, cooked and crumbled

*One cup shredded Gruyere cheese (4 ounces)


1.  Preheat over to 375 degrees.  Lightly flour a rolling pin and work surface and roll out dough to a 12-inch round.  Place in a 9-inch pie plate, fold overhang under, and crimp edge.  Place a sheet of parchment paper over dough and fill with pie weights or dried beans.  Bake until edge is dry and light golden, about 20 minutes.  Remove parchment and weights.

2.  Meanwhile, in a large skillet, melt butter over medium-high.  Add onion, season with salt and pepper, and cook until light golden, 8 to 10 minutes.  In a median bowl, whisk together eggs and cream.  Add onion, bacon, and cheese and season with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.  Whisk to combine, pour into crust, and bake until center of quiche is just set, 40 to 45 minutes.  Serve warm or at room temperature.
