Sausage, Cheese and Carmelized Onion Quiche

I have been wanting to make a quiche for awhile, and finally had the time this morning. I thought it would be extra yummy if I caramelized some onions and added cottage cheese.

I have to say this is the best Quiche I have ever made, the caramelized onions which were slightly sweet paired with the salty sausage and cheese was over the top delicious! I think the cottage cheese also made it creamier and lighter. You could serve this for breakfast, lunch or dinner!

6 eggs
1/4 cup milk
1/3 cup cottage cheese
Shredded Cheese (any kind would work, I used Monterey Jack)
6-8 cooked sausage links diced (or you could use bulk sausage, my links were leftover from yesterday and already cooked)
1/2 a sweet onion sliced thinly and cooked until caramelized
1 pre-made pie crust
Salt and Pepper to taste
1/4 tsp onion powder
1 tsp dried chives
Cayenne pepper (to taste)

Par bake the pie crust at 350 for about 10 minutes, remove to cool

Spread the caramelized onions in the bottom of the pie crust, add the meat and top with as much cheese as you like

In a seperate bowl, mix the beaten eggs, cottage cheese, milk and spices, until well incorported and pour over the pie crust.

Bake at 350 for approximately an hour, check and cook for additional time as needed, you dont want the quiche to wiggle at all. Remove from oven and cool for 10 minutes.

Cut and serve, with sour cream if you wish!
