Quiche Oignon avec Lardons (Onion Quiche with Bacon)

Pâte Brisée

1 T. olive oil
about 6 medium yellow onions, thinly sliced
1/2 t. fine sea salt
3 large eggs
200 ml cream
1/4 t. freshly ground pepper
150 g. grated gruyere or emmental cheese
100 g. lardons (small strips of bacon)

Heat olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the onions, sprinkle with 1/4 t. salt, and stir. Cover, turn the heat down to low, and cook for 30 minutes, stirring from time to time, until onions are soft and translucent. Remove the lid, turn heat to med. high, and cook for another 5 minutes, stirring, until most of the liquids have evaporated.

Remove the dough from the refrigerator and let stand at room temperature for 10 minutes before using. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Grease a 25 cm quiche pan. Roll out the dough and transfer to the pan; prick all over with a fork. Bake for 7 minutes, until lightly golden, and remove from oven.

Remove onions from the pan and fry up the lardons until crisp.

In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs and cream. Season with remaining salt and pepper. Fold in the cheese, onions, and lardons, and pour into the tart shell.

Bake for 35 minutes, until the top is golden and the center of the quiche is still slightly jiggly. Turn off the oven and leave the quiche in the closed oven for 10 minutes, until the filling is set. Serve warm.
