Recipe: Caramelized Onion, Ham, & Feta Quiche (serves 6-8)
1 prepared pie crust(I cheated and used store bought)
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 large onion, thinly sliced
4 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 zucchini, grated
3 oz ham, any type will do, cubed or cut into small pieces
3 oz feta cheese, crumbled
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place pie dough into your pan(I used a 12 inch tart pan), press dough into sides, and cut off excess at the top. Poke several holes in the bottom of the dough to let air escape. Par-bake in oven for 8 minutes. Set aside to cool slightly.
While the pie crust is baking, heat olive oil in a large frying pan. Over medium high heat, cook onions until soft and slightly caramelized(slowly). Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Caramelizing onions takes longer than you think--about 12-15 minutes until they are sweated down, stirring frequently. I sometimes add a splash of water to help this process.
Next, add your eggs, flour, baking powder, and black pepper in a large mixing bowl. Whisk until combined. Add grated zucchini, ham, and caramelized onions then pour into your tart shell. Top with feta cheese crumbles.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until center is just set. Let cool for at least 10 minutes prior to eating.
