One day out of the month at Community Bible Study we have a fellowship day. Members bring food to share. It is a special time of fun, food, and lots of talking, laughing, and praying!  Last month one of our friends brought an Onion Quiche.  I wasn’t a part of her group for the fellowship time but afterwards, gathered around a big counter in the kitchen, she gave me a sliver of the leftover.  I didn’t know if I was just hungry at the moment or this was one special quiche.  Either way, I just knew I had to make one and taste more of the wonderful flavors.  She gave me a quick “I used french fried onions” from the can. That was enough to get me going!

Quiche ingredients

I adore making quiche.  I love eating quiche. It is so easy to make with your favorite ingredients.  For this quiche I used a 9″ pie crust, Swiss cheese, French-fried onions, eggs, milk, salt, pepper, and some leftover ham.  The meat is optional and Cheddar or pepper-jack cheese can be added to crank this up a notch!  Quiche can be made with heavy cream, half ‘n half, or a little sour cream.  Those ingredients add to the overall richness and are wonderful.  Feel free to sub in a little of the creams for the milk, if you wish.  For this quiche I used 2% milk and it was still wonderful.

We ate this as a supper meal with a fresh green salad.  Voilà’ — dinner  is served. This very same quiche is equally good for breakfast. With Mother’s Day just around the corner quiche fits in superbly for a special brunch!

    • When you try again using the
      French Fried Onion rings you
      Will notice the difference! Also, use a small container of the
      rings and use it liberally that way you won’t need a pie crust!
