Yummmmm! This was a great addition to the baby shower menu – a great non-meat option for a quiche that was full of flavor and filling without feeling too heavy. I really liked it and will definitely use this recipe again. It was also super easy to make and yet seemed fancier or more involved that it actually was! As with the other quiche I made for the baby shower, this was completely eaten before I could take a photo. I guess that means we just get to make it again! 🙂
Caramelized Onion and Gorgonzola Quiche
Recipe adapted from http://www.marthastewart.com
1 Tbsp. olive oil
3 large yellow onions, thinly sliced
2 large eggs
1/2 c. skim milk
1/2 c. heavy cream
salt/pepper to taste
2 oz. Gorgonzola
1 prepared pie crust
In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add onions and saute until onions caramelize (turn golden brown). Remove from heat and set aside.
Place pie crust in prepared pie pan (I lightly greased my pie pan).
In a small bowl, whisk eggs, milk, cream, and salt/pepper. Crumble the gorgonzola into the egg mixture. Gently stir in the caramelized onions. Pour into pie crust.
Bake in an oven preheated to 400 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until cooked through. Allow to sit for 5-10 minutes before slicing. Serve hot.
