Potato-crusted Onion Quiche

This was a weird combination of something like a quiche that I made up for dinner. For the crust, I used Emeril's recipe for a "Manly Quiche", and sort of made up the rest.

Crust:

3 cups frozen hash brown potatoes
1 T. melted butter
1/4 c. grated parmigiamo

Stir together and spread mixture into a 9 " glass pie plate. Bake 23-30 minutes at 425. Then reduce oven temperature to 400.

Filling:

4 slices of cooked bacon
1 large onion, thinly sliced
pinch of sugar
1 c. cream
1 large egg
1 large egg yolk
salt and pepper
1 c. gruyere cheese, grated
1/2 c. cheddar cheese, grated

Cook bacon, drain all but 1 T. of drippings. Add onion and pinch of sugar, and carmalize onion.

Whisk together cream, egg, egg yolk, salt and pepper.

Layer onion, then bacon, then cheeses over crust. Pour liquid mixture over top.

I think I must try this. Just ask Mike, two of my favorite things are potatoes and onions. Add a little cheese and a couple of eggs and its a perfect meal for me night or day. This one is right up my alley so thank you Palma!

My favorite things are potatoes and cheese so I will have to try this!
