Canadian Bacon Onion Quiche

A classic quiche made with Canadian bacon, onion and Cheddar cheese.


6 to 8 servings


1 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
1/2 cup plus 3 tablespoons cold butter, divided
1/2 cup 4% small-curd cottage cheese
3 large sweet onions, sliced (about 6 cups)
4 ounces Canadian bacon, diced
1/4 teaspoon pepper
3 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded Cheddar cheese


Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C).

In a small bowl, combine flour and 1/4 teaspoon salt; cut in 1/2 cup butter until crumbly. Gradually add cottage cheese, tossing with a fork until dough forms a ball.

Roll out pastry to fit a 9-inch pie plate. Transfer pastry to pie plate. Trim pastry to 1/2 inch beyond edge of plate; flute edges.

In large skillet, saute onions in remaining butter until golden brown. Stir in the Canadian bacon, pepper and remaining salt. Remove from the heat; add eggs and Cheddar cheese. Pour into pastry shell.

Bake for 40 to 45 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.
