Here’s a recipe I created just this week from items I had in the fridge and freezer. A package of pie crusts that had been in the freezer since the holidays when I stocked up while they were on sale. Carmelized onions that I’d made from the five pound bag of Vadilla onions I bought a few weeks ago. The sweetness of the onions, the bite of the sharp cheese, plus the smokiness of the bacon combines together for a quick meal that’s easy on the budget too. It serves 4-6 and is ideal with a tossed green salad
1 ready made pie crust
1 cup milk (you can also use half and half too)
1/2 cup carmelized onions
1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 cup chopped bacon bits ( I used jar bacon pieces for this)
Good pinch of salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 375 degrees and roll out the pie crust into a quiche pan or dish. Cook for about ten minutes and then let cool while you assemble the quiche.
Beat the eggs, add the milk, stir together and then add the onions, cheese, bacon and salt and pepper and make sure everything is well blended. Pour on top of the pastry and cook for about 25-30 minutes or until the center of the quiche is set.
