Description

A deep dish delight packed with caramelized onions, bacon, and sharp cheddar cheese. Real cowboys eat this quiche!

Ingredients

  • 1 whole Unbaked Pie Crust (enough For A Deep Dish Pan)
  • 2 whole Yellow Onions, Sliced
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • 8 slices Bacon
  • 8 whole Large Eggs
  • 1-½ cup Heavy Cream Or Half-and-Half
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • 2 cups Grated Sharp Cheddar Cheese

Preparation

Fry the onions in the butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat for at least 15 to 20 minutes (maybe longer), stirring occasionally, until the onions are deep golden brown. Set aside to cool.

Fry the bacon until chewy. Chop into large bite-sized pieces and set aside to cool.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Roll out the pie crust and press it into a large fluted deep tart pan (or a deep dish pie pan).

Whip the eggs, cream, salt and pepper in a large bowl, then mix in the onions, bacon, and cheese. Pour the mixture into the pie crust.

Place the pan on a rimmed baking sheet, cover lightly with aluminum foil, and bake it for about 40 to 45 minutes. Remove the foil and continue baking for 10 to 15 minutes, or until the quiche is set and the crust is golden brown. (The quiche will still seem slightly loose, but will continue to set once remove from the oven.)

Remove from the oven and allow to sit for 10 to 15 minutes. If using a tart pan, remove the quiche from the pan, cut into slices with a sharp serrated knife, and serve!

Question: Has anyone made this quiche the day before and warmed it up? I am throwing a shower and we thought it might be a good idea to make the quiches the day before and warm them up the next day. Any thoughts?

This turned out great! The flavors of the onions and bacon are a perfect combo. I’m not an experienced pie maker, but used the link to Ree’s Perfect Pie Crust recipe and it turned out flaky and so good.

AHHHHHHHMAZING! Served it for Christmas brunch & nothing was left. Family said its a 5 star & could we have it lots more often. Only change I’d make will be to use large onions to make more carmelized onions plus what my kids said: Don’t make just one, Mom!!!

Make this for dinner some nights for my kids and myself! They love it! I change up the cheese sometimes just to give it a different taste! Good either way!

Had this at a bridal shower brunch, it was so delicious! Added baby portobello mushrooms for taste.
