Cream Cheese, Caramelized Onion and Bacon Quiche

With my wedding coming up in less than two months I am trying to be so good in what I make for supper, but some days you just crave something a little bit moreish!  I recently starred another such recipe in my Google reader - The Cream Cheese, Caramelized Onion and Bacon Quiche from the Picky Palate blog.  I remember years ago I used to regularly enjoy making quiche lorraine, but having misplaced my recipe at one point I just forgot about it and now it's been over 10 years since I have made a quiche.  So I was having a weak day and needed something other than boring diet food.....quiche was just the ticket.  I really hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we did!  Please go and check out Jenny's blog! She really has some fantastic recipes!
Cream Cheese, Caramelized Onion and Bacon Quiche
from the Picky Palate food blog

1 refrigerated 9-inch pie crust
1/2 pound bacon
1 large sliced white onion
8 eggs
1/4 cup milk
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
5 ounces softened Philadelphia Cream Cheese
3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and spray a 9-inch pie plate with non-stick cooking spray.

2. Heat a large skillet over medium heat and cook bacon, stirring until browned, about 10 minutes. Transfer bacon to a paper towel lined plate and discard drippings. Add onions and cook, stirring until onions are golden and caramelized, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat.

3. Unroll pie crust and lay inside and up edges of prepared pie plate. With fork, poke holes in bottom and partially bake crust for 10 minutes, then remove from oven.

4. Add eggs, milk, salt and pepper to a large bowl, whisking to combine. Layer cooked onions over bottom of partially baked crust and top with bacon pieces and cream cheese pieces. Pour eggs over bacon and top with cheese and parsley. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until eggs are set and edges are browned. Remove and let cool for 5 minutes before cutting into wedges.
