Check this out. . .
I really don’t have much to say except that you MUST try this recipe! Even if you don’t like onions! I promise, it’s so rich and delicious and not “oniony!”
I found this recipe in Southern Living March 2012 and made it for dinner (with a few modifications from the original) a little over a week ago. Here is how I did it.
Caramelized Vidalia Onion Quiche Recipe
Slice 2-3 large sweet Vidalia onions.
Cook onions in 2 Tbsp hot olive oil for 15-20 minutes until they are a nice caramel color.
While the onions are caramelizing, grate, cook and crumble 6 slices of bacon.
Add bacon and 1 tsp chopped parsley (1/4 cup chopped fresh) to the pan.
Stir to combine.
Lay prepared pie crust in a 9-inch pie pan.
Add half of onion mixture to the pie crust.
Grate 8 oz of Gruyere cheese (enough to equal 2 cups).
Add half of the shredded cheese on top of the onions.
Repeat the layers with remaining onions and cheese.
In a bowl, mix 4 eggs, 1 1/2 cups half-and-half, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp ground pepper and 1/4 tsp of ground nutmeg (I added a dash more).
Whisk until well combined.
Pour the egg mixture on over the onions and cheese. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 45 minutes or until set.
Let me warn you that this smells DIVINE while it cooks!

Oh my gosh y’all, this was SO good. I couldn’t stop eating it out of the pan after dinner! Even if you don’t think you like onions, be brave and try it, please?!
I served it along side some grilled tilapia and green salad. This would also make a great luncheon dish with a salad and fruit!
Go get some Vidalias and try this! You won’t be disappointed!
