    FlemishMinx's Note:

    This is my family's favorite quiche recipe. I tend to make it on Friday nights, when my vegetarian stepdaughter arrives home from the week at university with a large appetite for something home-cooked and satisfying. Serve with a bowl of soup or a salad, and you've got just that. What makes it so delicious in my opinion is the "secret ingredient" . . . mustard smeared on the bottom of the crust.I have noted one TBS in the recipe, but use as much as you need to provide an even coating. This quiche definitely tastes as good cold as warm from the oven, and makes a nice appetizer when cut in small portions, as well.

    1. 1
      Pre-heat oven to 400° F (or 200° C).
    2. 2
      Blind-bake the pie shell till just set and beginning to brown, about 10 to 15 minutes.
    3. 3
      Remove from oven and allow to cool.
    4. 4
      This can obviously be done in advance.
    5. 5
      Saute the onion slices in the oil, and cook till they go golden.
    6. 6
      Add the crumbled thyme, salt and pepper.
    7. 7
      In a mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs and the cream.
    8. 8
      Spread the mustard evenly on the bottom of the quiche crust with a brush or spoon.
    9. 9
      Next, spread the cheese evenly in the shell.
    10. 10
      Follow by spreading the onions over the cheese.
    11. 11
      They will not make a solid layer; distribute as evenly as possible.
    12. 12
      Pour in the egg/cream mixture.
    13. 13
      Lay the tomato slices on top.
    14. 14
      Salt and pepper again, if desired.
    15. 15
      Bake for approximately 35 minutes, or until filling has set and cooked all the way through to the center, and is nicely browned.
    16. 16
      Remove from oven, serve, and enjoy!

      I've made this quiche twice. It was a hit both times. Once with 4 eggs and once with 3 eggs. I prefered the 4 egg version. Both were delish!

      I have made this several times now and wanted to add my 5 stars since i love it so much. I do change it up though based on ingredients i have on hand but yours is the base i use. This past time i made it with asparagus, a blend of white cheddar and (freshly grated) parmesan and grape tomatoes sliced in half... i have to agree with another reviewer though that i think just 3 eggs will do. Thanks so much for posting this delicious recipe :)
