4 slices bacon
1 9-inches unbaked pie crust
¼ cup butter
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 egg, beaten
2 eaches eggs
1 ¼ cups sour cream
¼ cup cream cheese softened
¼ teaspoon salt
⅛ teaspoon ground black pepper
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
HOW TO MAKE BACON, CHEESE, AND CARAMELIZED ONION QUICHE
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees F or 175 degrees C.
Step 2: In a large skillet, fry the bacon, turning occasionally over medium-high heat for about 10 minutes until crispy. Then, remove from the skillet and place the bacon slices on paper towels. Allow them to cool for at least 10 minutes and crumble. Set aside.
Step 3: Use a lightly floured rolling pin to roll out the pastry crust into a circle. With the crust, line a 9-inch pie pan, then, using a fork, prick holes into the dough.
Step 4: Place inside the preheated oven and bake the crust on the middle rack for about 15 minutes.
Step 5: Once done, remove the pastry from the oven and brush with a beaten egg. Place the crust back into the oven and bake for 5 minutes more.
Step 6: In a pan, melt the butter over medium heat. Sautee the onion and cook for about 5 minutes until soft and translucent. Adjust the heat to low and remain cooking and stirring the onion until very tender and dark brown. This takes about 40 minutes more.
Step 7: Whisk two eggs using a fork in a bowl. Add in the sour cream and cream cheese. Beat with an electric mixer until thoroughly combined. Add a dash of salt and pepper and beat again.
Step 8: Transfer the caramelized onions with the rest of the butter onto pastry crust. Sprinkle half of the cheddar cheese over and evenly place the crumbled bacon on top. Then, pour the egg mixture on top of the bacon and sprinkle the rest of the cheddar cheese.
Step 9: Place in the oven and bake the quiche for about 30 minutes or until golden and fluffy.
Step 10: Once done, remove from the oven and allow the quiche to cool for at least 10 minutes before serving.
