Very good as an appetizer, baked in frozen purchased tart shells.

Lovely! It was perfect to use some left over camembert that had been lurking in the fridge for some time. The cheese gives the quiche a nice tangy taste which goes nicely with the sweetness of the onions. Thanks!

This was so tasty! We loved the sweet onions with the camembert. Next time I'll add another onion and two more eggs though, because it was a bit thin. Yummy! Thanks Mandy!
