Directions To make the crust: Step 1 Preheat the oven to 325F. In a medium bowl, whisk together almond flour, garlic powder, and salt. Stir in melted butter until the dough resembles coarse crumbs. Step 2 Turn the loose dough out into a 9-inch glass or ceramic pie pan. Press firmly into the bottom and up the sides. Use a flat-bottomed glass or measuring cup to even out the bottom of the crust. Step 3 Crimp edges of crust and prick the bottom all over with a fork. Bake 10-12 minutes, until slightly puffed and just starting to brown. Remove from oven and set aside to cool. To make the filling: Step 1 In a large skillet over medium-low heat, melt butter. Add onions and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, until onions are soft and caramelized, about 15-20 minutes. Take care not to let onions get crispy. Step 2 Fill the cooled crust with caramelized onions and half of the grated Gruyére cheese. Step 3 In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, heavy cream, and a pinch each of salt and pepper. Pour egg mixture over the onions and cheese. Sprinkle the top of the quiche with remaining grated cheese. Step 4 Bake quiche 35-40 minutes or until the filling is just set in the center. Remove and let cool for 15 minutes before serving. Rate this Recipe Share this Recipe How much did you enjoy this recipe? How much did you enjoy this recipe?

Nex time I will add more onions and cheese. I’m wondering if leftovers can be frozen. Will the pie crust stay firm ? Thank you.

As far as freezing goes, we're not entirely comfortable saying this crust would perform well being frozen and then thawed. We love this recipe so much, we usually don't have that many leftovers at all! Reply Page 1 Created with Sketch. Carrie Hunting January 04, 2020 Cannot wait to try!

Pamela Gianni November 13, 2018 Gruyere quiche from Pte and Gerry's Reply Page 1 Created with Sketch. Lynn October 04, 2018 This is exceptional! I would say that the crust isn't all that good after the first day but the filling is just delicious! I'm planning on making this again! Reply Page 1 Created with Sketch. 1 Reply [email protected] October 04, 2018 We're so thrilled that you enjoyed it, Lynn! It's true that almond flour crust does not hold up quite as well as regular crust, but it can still be delicious after soaking up a bit of that creamy egg mixture. If you decide to reheat leftovers, baking them for a very short time at a high temperature should help bring some crunch back into that crust. Glad to hear that this is one of those recipes you'll keep going back to! Reply Page 1 Created with Sketch. Sherry August 22, 2018 This was awesome Reply Page 1 Created with Sketch.
