  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

  4. Sprinkle half of the grated Gruyere cheese over the pie crust.
  5. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs and heavy cream. Season with salt and pepper.
  6. Spread the caramelized onions evenly over the cheese in the pie crust.
  7. Pour the egg and cream mixture over the onions.
  8. Sprinkle the remaining Gruyere cheese on top.
  9. Bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes or until the quiche is set and the top is golden brown.
  10. Allow the quiche to cool slightly before slicing and serving.
