Greg's Favorite Quiche

This Swiss Cheese & Onion Quiche is one of Greg's breakfast favorites at the log cabin. Sometimes I will add 1/2 cup of cooked turkey bacon to it (trying to keep it somewhat healthy.) You can also add ham too. I found this recipe at

3 tablespoons butter, softened, divided
1 (9 inch) unbaked pastry shell
1 large onion, chopped
2 cups shredded Swiss cheese
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
3 eggs
1 cup half-and-half cream
1/4 teaspoon salt

Spread 1 tablespoon butter over bottom of pastry shell; set aside. In a skillet, saute onion in remaining butter until tender. Spread in pastry shell. Toss Swiss cheese with flour; sprinkle over onion. In a bowl, whisk the eggs, cream and salt. Pour evenly over cheese.
Bake, uncovered, at 400 degrees F for 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 325 degrees F; bake 30-35 minutes longer or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting.

That sounds great! I just had brunch at a friends house and she served "crustless" quiche. It tasted great and you really didn't miss the crust...That saved alot of calories!

Sounds like something Jimmy might like, but not me. I don't like eggs.

Isn't anyone else in the blogging world on a diet? Is it just me? I gained 10 pounds just reading the recipe Shelley! :)

I am always looking for good breakfast ideas, and I can tell just by reading this recipe that we would love this! Besides if it is Greg's favorite, how could we not like it??? Thank you so much for sharing it.

This sounds really good Shelly! I love quiche but DH doesn't. I may just have to make one for me!!! :)

I was searching through my emails and can't find the one you sent me with the camera recommendation. Can you resend it to me???

Thank you and hope you are enjoying your weekend. My feet/ankles are doing better. I started taking glucosamine last week. That and my compression stockings must be helping.
