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

  • 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)
  • 4 ounces Canadian bacon, diced
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup 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.
  2. On a floured surface, roll dough to a 1/8-in.-thick circle; transfer to a 9-in. pie plate. Trim crust to 1/2 in. beyond rim of plate; flute edge.
  3. In large skillet, heat remaining 3 tablespoons butter over medium heat. Add onions; cook and stir until golden brown. Stir in Canadian bacon, pepper and remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt. Remove from heat; add eggs and cheddar cheese. Pour into crust.
  4. 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.
