Caramelized Shallot and Swiss Chard Quiche
Caramelized shallots, swiss chard, and loads of gruyere cheese make this quiche rich and delicious. So perfect for any brunch occasion.
Yield: 6 servings
  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lb shallots, thinly sliced
  • salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 5 oz baby swiss chard
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1½ cups heavy cream
  • 1½ cups grated gruyere cheese
  • 1 9-inch prepared pie crust (I got mine from Trader Joe's!)
  1. Heat the butter and olive oil in a medium pot over medium-low heat until the butter is melted. Stir in the shallots and cook until caramelized, stirring frequently, about 25-30 minutes. Once caramelized, stir in the garlic and swiss chard. Cook until swiss chard is wilted, another 2-3 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and black pepper.
  2. Heat oven to 350F.
  3. Meanwhile, roll the pie dough to a 12-inch circle and place it in a 9-inch deep dish pie plate. Crimp and place in the refrigerator to chill while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.
  4. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, cream, and gruyere. Season to taste with salt and black pepper.
  5. Remove the pie crust from the fridge and place the veggie filling into the crust, spreading in an even layer. Pour the egg mixture over the top and mix gently to combine evenly.
  6. Place quiche in the oven and bake for 45-55 minutes, or until the top is golden and the center is set. Let cool slightly before serving.
