Caramelized Onion and Mushroom Quiche
Picture this: a golden-brown, savory quiche with a perfectly flaky crust, filled with the rich flavors of caramelized onions and earthy mushrooms. It’s a dish that’s as delightful to the eyes as it is to the taste buds.
- 1 pre-made pie crust
- 2 large onions, thinly sliced
- 8 oz mushrooms, sliced
- 1 cup shredded Gruyère cheese
- 4 large eggs
- 1 cup heavy cream
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
- In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-low heat. Add the sliced onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until they turn a deep golden brown, about 20-25 minutes.
- Add the sliced mushrooms to the caramelized onions and cook for an additional 5 minutes until they’re tender.
- While the onion and mushroom mixture cools slightly, whisk together the eggs and heavy cream in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
- Place the pre-made pie crust in a pie dish. Spread the caramelized onion and mushroom mixture evenly over the crust. Sprinkle the shredded Gruyère cheese on top.
- Pour the egg and cream mixture over the filling.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 35-40 minutes or until the quiche is set and the top is golden brown.
- Remove from the oven and let it cool slightly before slicing.
