Caramelized Onion and Blue Cheese Quiche

This Caramelized Onion and Blue Cheese Quiche is an absolute winner ! You can either serve it as a meatless Monday meal with a salad or two, or you can enjoy the Quiche as a side dish.

I have made the Quiche several times over the last month or two and we just enjoy it more and more each time.

Around three or four weeks ago, I made one specifically to share on the blog. But had an unfortunate kitchen mishap before I could even take a photo of the baked Quiche !

The mishap, happened to be me (having the Quiche in hand) by meeting the tiled kitchen floor on hands and knees !

To make a long story short (well, it really is a short story) ! I tripped over my grand-dog, Nahla ! Quiche flying with the glass dish shattering into a thousand pieces. Me with a busted knee, two thumbs out of their sockets and a nice, deep, bleeding cut on my hand.

I was so upset – did not really worry about my cuts and bruises at the time, but my dish and the Quiche ! Right, by the next morning I had pains and aches in places I did not even know could hurt. And that’s the end of the story ..

This Caramelized Onion and Blue Cheese Quiche is so creamy and tasty.  I could almost have it every second day – either as a main dish, or a side dish, I am not picky.

Add a little more sustenance !

Now and then I add in some cooked, shredded Bacon, which gives the Quiche a little more taste and makes it a bit richer as well.

I am adding a photo below of the KNORR packet which I used in this recipe, in case it is not available, or known, to you. At least you will have an idea of what to look for to substitute the packet with.

Although the Quiche should be served warm, it is delicious when cold as well. On hot Summer days, I actually prefer to serve the Quiche cold with a crunchy side salad for lunch or even an early light dinner – which we so love here in SA.

I am not a fan of blue cheese but my hubby certainly is. I think this would go down a real treat with him :-)

Thanks for sharing at Marvelous Monday on Smart Party Planning.
