I have used this tried and true recipe for many years. It is from an old Betty Crocker Cookbook. A few reviewers have mentioned the onions don't cook enough. Please note that the instructions say "minced onions". It is a very small cut. If you don't intend to cut the onions that small, please do sauté them first. I have great results every time I have made this quiche using a ready from the freezer 9-inch pie crust.

This is my favourite recipe. Almost the same but I mix the swiss with Gruyere equal portions. I did learn while living in Europe the Lorraine which is a provence in France has no cheese so I was told this is really a quiche. Anyway its delicious and thanks for sharing with everyone.

I've made this quiche for over 15 years and it's always a hit. I do sautee the onions before adding them in. In my old book it says to sautee them in the bacon grease. Bad for you...but YUM!! This is a hit with my hubby & 3 kids. I have to make 2 because they quickly go through 1. Thanks for posting this!
