This recipe came to me from my mother—it’s the kind you request after just one bite! Unlike some quiches, this one is hearty enough to appeal to both big and small appetites. —Deanna Baldwin, Bermuda Dunes, California

Ingredients

  • 1 sheet refrigerated pie crust
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 cups shredded Swiss cheese
  • 1 can (14-3/4 ounces) salmon, drained, flaked and cartilage removed
  • 5 large eggs
  • 2 cups half-and-half cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Minced fresh parsley, optional

Directions

  1. Unroll the crust into 9-in. pie plate. Line unpricked pie crust with a double thickness of heavy-duty foil. Bake at 450° for 8 minutes. Remove foil; bake 5 minutes longer. Cool on a wire rack.
  2. In a small skillet, saute onion in butter until tender. Sprinkle cheese in the crust; top with salmon and onion.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk the eggs, cream and salt; pour over salmon mixture. Bake at 350° for 45-50 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Sprinkle with parsley if desired. Let stand 5 minutes before cutting.
