Recipe — Caramelized Onion Quiche with Maple Syrup
4 portions
Metric Imperial

Ingredients

  • 1 200-g (7-oz) frozen pastry sheet (defrosted)

Filling

  • 1 large onion
  • 2 slices thin-cut bacon
  • 3/4 oz butter
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup (Amber)

Sauce

  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 tablespoons fresh cream
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese (or processed grated cheese)

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200 °C (400 °F).
  2. Cut the onion lengthwise in half and thinly slice following the grain.
  3. Cut bacon into small dice. Heat butter in a frying pan and sauté bacon.
  4. Add onions, salt, and pepper and cook over medium heat for 10 minutes. When onions are slightly colored, add maple syrup and sauté, turning off the heat when onions become caramelized. Let cool.
  5. Mix eggs, milk, and fresh cream in a bowl and add salt and pepper, to taste.
  6. Roll out the pastry sheet until it is about 3 mm (1/8 in) thick, spread in the pie plate, cut off excess pie dough, and prick vent holes all over the bottom of the sheet with a fork.
  7. Place the sauté into the pie plate, and pour the sauce over the mixture. Top with Parmigiano Reggiano.
  8. Bake in a 200 °C (400 °F) oven for 20 minutes first, then bake at 160 °C (325 °F) for 5 minutes. The quiche is done when the top is browned.
  9. Cut into easy-to-eat slices and plate.

More about Maple

Maple syrup comes in four classifications, according to colour and taste.

At the start of sugaring season, syrup is generally clear, with a lightly sweet taste. It becomes darker and caramelized as the season goes on.

An unopened can of maple syrup keeps for many years.

Once the can is opened, syrup should be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.

100% pure maple butter contains no butter or dairy.

Like all 100% pure maple products, maple butter comes from the sap of the maple tree… and that’s all.
