Rosemary Quiche sounds lovely, doesn't it? Honestly, I couldn't decide what to call this delicious dish.... Caramelized Onion, Bacon & Rosemary Quiche with a Croissant Crust does sound tasty, but honestly that is just too long a title! So....Rosemary Quiche it is!
This dish is as fragrant as it is delicious and easy. My entire house smelled divine for hours. Make and bake ahead of time, then reheat just before serving -- or serve piping hot and cheesy straight from the oven. Or, eat it cold. Go ahead, because it doesn't matter -- it's tasty.
2 cans crescent rolls (8 rolls per can)
1/4 cup cream
6-8 slices bacon
1 small yellow or white onion
2 Tb rosemary - fresh or dried, chopped
salt & pepper
1 cup mozzarella cheese
First, we need to prep the ingredients. Chop your onion into a small dice - cook on low heat with a Tb olive oil or butter, salt, pepper and the rosemary until soft, browned and caramelized.
While onion is cooking, start your bacon. Cut your bacon into 1/2 inch chunks. I like to partially freeze bacon before cutting, makes it firmer and easier to cut. Cook bacon until just crisp. Pull from pan and remove extra grease with paper towels.
Roll out the crescent rolls, and press into the bottom of a 9 x 13 casserole dish, connecting seams and making one lovely crust.
Beat eggs, cream and a dash more salt and pepper until combined. Pour over your crescent roll crust. Sprinkle bacon, then onions, evenly over egg mixture. Finally, sprinkle with cheese.
Bake at 350 F for 15-20 minutes, until eggs are set and firm. You can jiggle the pan to see if it moves, press slightly with your fingers or make a slight cut to check eggs. Don't trust a toothpick, because the cheese may make it look 'wet,' and we don't want to over bake and have a dry quiche on our hands!
