    PainterCook's Note:

    This is a modified version of a quiche recipe we've had for years. It is very rich and very delicious. It makes a wonderful dinner for someone who needs some help, like a new Mom, or a bereaved family, instead of the usual casserole, as you can make it ahead and the recipient can easily reheat it. To save time, use a frozen pie crust, the roll-out kind.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Line the quiche dish or 9" pie dish with the pastry crust and crimp the edges. Line inside with a sheet of foil. Fill the crust with uncooked dry beans or pie weights and bake at 400 degrees for 7 minutes. Remove from oven, take out the weights by carefully pulling up the foil, and prick the bottom of the crust with a fork. Continue baking 5 more minutes--the crust should be partially baked, not brown. Let cool. Reduce the oven temperature to 375.
    2. 2
      Make the custard by combining the eggs, cream, wine, salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Whisk until blended and set aside.
    3. 3
      Heat butter in a saute pan and add the onions and mushrooms, and a pinch of salt to draw out flavor. Cook only until soft and golden (not browned), about 5 minutes.
    4. 4
      Spread the onions and mushrooms in the partially baked pie shell and sprinkle with the swiss cheese. Cover with custard mixture.
    5. 5
      Bake at 375 for 40 minutes, until puffed and golden. Remove from oven and allow to sit for 15 minutes before cutting.
    6. 6
      Note: I have tried this without the white wine and it does not turn out as well, so don't leave it out. Also, if you have fresh herbs on hand, you can sprinkle those on top before baking or at the table when serving.
