This Zewelwai recipe is a close cousin of the famous Quiche Lorraine. The main difference is that deliciously sweet, sautéed onions replace the bacon and cheese.
Prep Time: 25 minutes
Cook Time: 50 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour, 15 minutes
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 1/2 cups chopped white onions
- 1 layer pastry dough
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup half and half
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/8 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
Sauté the onions in the butter over medium heat for about 10 minutes, until they turn very soft and translucent.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Fit the pastry into a deep-dish pie pan. Sprinkle the onions onto the bottom layer of the pastry. Beat together the eggs, half and half, salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Pour the eggs over the onions and bake the quiche for 45-50 minutes, until the eggs are set in the middle. Cool slightly and serve.
