This is an exciting recipe from Melissa Clark. This quiche increases my appreciation for caramelized onions. The flavor was timeless. After watching the video, I was able to follow the instructions flawlessly. I enjoyed making this quiche. The proportions are perfect. I used thick sliced applewood bacon, shredded Gruyère, fresh nutmeg, and yellow onions. Where I usually shop, sweet onions are sold individually by the pound, and yellow onions are sold in 3 lb bags. I was surprised because the flavor of the yellow onions was so appealing. Nutmeg has a strong flavor. I had never used fresh nutmeg. The flavor is exciting and seems more mild than ground nutmeg. The filling is made with caramelized onions, eggs, cream, Gruyère, nutmeg, salt, and pepper. The crust has the flavor of puff pastry but it is less flaky. The combination creates a very pleasing sweet and savory onion quiche. This is a great recipe. I served this quiche with sweet peas mixed with some honey, and a small amount of balsamic vinegar and olive oil.
The honey was harvested from bees that feed on clover. Supposedly, Grana Padano  is from the milk of cows that eat a different diet than the milk of cows used to make Parmigiano Reggiano . The flavors of the different cheeses are influenced by the diet of the cows . The flavor of this honey is significantly different than the flavor of other honeys because the bees supposedly feed on clover. I was excited about the honey, and I had to think about it since the flavor was so different.
