  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 large onion, sliced thin, 5 1/2 ounces *

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder (regular and chipotle are both good)


Servings 6


Step 1

Sauté the onion in butter until tender and slightly caramelized.

Place the cheese in a greased pie plate; top with the onions. Beat the eggs, cream and seasonings.

Pour over all. Bake at 350º for 35-40 minutes until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.

Let stand 10 minutes before cutting.

Can be frozen

* Any yellow onion will do because it's cooked long enough to caramelize it and make it sweet, but a Vidalia or Texas 1015 onion would be wonderful.
