The Pioneer Woman’s Cowboy Quiche

  • 1 unbaked pie crust
  • 2 yellow onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 8 slices bacon
  • 8 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream or half and half
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, grated
  1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  2. In a large skillet over medium-low heat, melt butter and then fry onions until deep golden brown, stirring occasionally. This will take at least 15-20 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  3. Cook bacon until chewy but not too crispy. Chop into bite-sized pieces and set aside.
  4. Roll out pie crust into pie pan.
  5. In a large bowl, whip the eggs, cream, salt, and pepper, then add onions, bacon, and cheese, and stir to combine.
  6. Pour filling into pie crust and cover lightly with foil. Place on a rimmed baking sheet and bake 45 minutes.
  7. Remove foil and let bake until golden brown, 10-15 more minutes.
  8. Let sit 10-15 minutes before serving. Slice, serve, and enjoy!
