Oh mama… this flavor combination blew me away. My diet is on hold indefinitely

Follow the instructions to make your Pâte Brisée (savory quiche base); and use this recipe for a savory filling.

Onion and Feta Quiche
(filling makes enough for 2 x 14″ x 4.25″)

Ingredients:

- 2 x Pâte Brisée doughs, docked and pre-baked
- 2 medium sized red onion  (caramelizing instructions here)
- 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar ( 45 grams)
- 2 tbsp brown sugar (55 grams)
- 2 tbsp olive oil (35 grams)
 - ~ 1 1/2 cup of macedonian feta cheese, crumbled (more or less depending on personal taste)

Savoury Royale Mix 
- 2 cups 18% Cream
- 2 whole Eggs
- 2 egg Yolks
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp pepper
- 2 tsp paprika
- 1/2 tbsp dried parsley
1/4 teaspoon dried leaf thyme

Directions:

Follow instructions for Pâte Brisée. Fit the dough to 2 x 15″x4.25″ quiche pans, and pre-bake.

Caramelize onions (instructions here) and allow to come to slightly cool. Place in the pie crust, and along with crumbled macedonian feta cheese.

 

Pre-heat oven to 375′F

In a seperate bowl, make the ‘savory royale’: Mix all ingredients for savory royale, and whisk until light and fluffy.

Place the filled pie shells that are still in their pans onto a cookie sheet– this is done incase we have any pie filling that leaks (we don’t want a messy oven).

Divide, and pour the savory royale mixture evenly between the two pie shells. And put in oven immediately to bake. Bake at 375 for 25-35 minutes, or until the filling has set and is golden brown.

Serve the quiche with fresh tomato wedges or a tossed salad.
