Canadian Bacon Onion Quiche Recipe

For over 20 years, we sold our homegrown specialty onions at the farmers market. I handed out this favorite recipe for a classic quiche to all our customers. —Janice Redford, Cambridge, Wisconsin
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Bake: 40 min. YIELD:8 servings


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/2 cup plus 3 tablespoons cold butter, divided

  • 3 large sweet onions, sliced (about 6 cups)
  • 4 ounces Canadian bacon, diced

  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese


  • 1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a small bowl, mix flour and 1/4 teaspoon salt; cut in 1/2 cup butter until crumbly. Gradually add cottage cheese, tossing with a fork until dough holds together when pressed. Shape into a disk.
