Debbie Ray’s Delicious Vidalia Onion Quiche Recipe

So far, only positive reviews on this one! My version of Vidalia Onion Quiche was adapted from a recipe in Southern Living magazine, which sounded delicious, but I wanted to use cheese I already had in my fridge and create a lower calorie, lower fat version. Let me know how yours turns out!

Ingredients

 
 

1 1/2 lbs. Vidalia onions

Bake the pie shells in the oven according to the directions on the label. Cook the bacon in the microwave until it's crispy, while you slice the onions and chop the parsley. Set the parsley aside and brown the onions in a little olive oil until they are soft and sweet. Drain the grease off the bacon and set aside.

Add the parsley and crumble the bacon into the pan with the onions (no heat) and stir it up.

Cool it for a few minutes before slicing. (I served ours with a chopped salad and a cup of fruit which I made while the quiche was in the oven.) Enjoy!
