Canadian Bacon Onion Quiche

For more than 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

Ingredients

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/2 cup plus 3 tablespoons cold butter, divided
  • 1/2 cup 4% small-curd cottage cheese
  • 3 large sweet onions, sliced (about 6 cups)

  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Directions

  • 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.

  • In large skillet, heat remaining butter over medium heat. Add onions; cook and stir until golden brown. Stir in Canadian bacon, pepper and remaining salt. Remove from heat; add eggs and cheddar cheese. Pour into crust.
  • Bake on a lower oven rack 40-45 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting.

    This was delicious! I added an extra egg and used 7 oz of canadian bacon. There was not one little crumb left.

    This was great! I used 4 eggs & added parsley. I added some garlic to the onions. The flavor was very rich! I think I might even add another egg next time. I served this with steamed broccoli & fresh fruit for dinner.

    Was very good but a little dry. When I make it again I will increase the eggs to 4. I used white onions and they turned out great. My husband even liked it and he is very picky. The crust was very tasty.
