How to Add a Flavorful Twist to Your Breakfast with a Caramelized Onion & Goat Cheese Quiche Recipe

Caramelized Onion and Goat Cheese Quiche can transform your meal into a delightfully sweet and tangy experience that's rich in flavor. Here's how to put together this delectable quiche, along with some pro tips to ensure it turns out perfectly every time.


  • Dish name: Caramelized Onion and Goat Cheese Quiche

  • Cuisine: French-inspired

  • Preparation time: 30 minutes, plus chilling

  • Cooking time: 50 minutes to 1 hour

  • Yield: Serves 6-8


  • 1 pie pastry crust (9-inch)

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 3 large onions, thinly sliced

  • 4 large eggs

  • 1 1/2 cups whole milk or cream

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

  • 1 teaspoon sugar (optional, for faster caramelization)

  • 4 ounces goat cheese, crumbled

  • Fresh thyme leaves for garnish (optional)


  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).

  2. Roll out your pastry crust to fit a 9-inch pie plate. Chill in the fridge while you prepare the filling.

  3. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions (and sugar, if using) and cook, stirring frequently until deeply caramelized—this may take around 20-25 minutes.

  4. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk (or cream), salt, and pepper.

  5. Scatter the caramelized onions evenly over the chilled crust, and crumble the goat cheese on top.

  6. Pour the egg mixture over the onions and cheese.

  7. Bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour, or until the quiche is set and the top is golden brown.

  8. Let the quiche cool slightly before garnishing with thyme, slicing, and serving.

Tips and Tricks:

  • Caramelization: Patience is key when caramelizing onions; don't rush the process, as slow cooking brings out their natural sweetness.

  • Even Crust: To avoid the crust puffing up during baking, use pie weights during blind baking, if you choose to do so.

  • Goat Cheese: Allow the cheese to come to room temperature for easier crumbling and better distribution throughout the quiche.

  • Baking Time: If the top is browning too quickly, cover the quiche loosely with aluminum foil to prevent burning.

  • Setting: The quiche should still have a slight jiggle in the center when it's done; it will set as it cools.

  • Flavor Infusion: Adding a teaspoon of balsamic vinegar to the onions can enhance their flavor even more.

  • Serving: Quiche can be served warm or at room temperature, making it ideal for gatherings where it may sit out for a while.

Enjoy your Caramelized Onion and Goat Cheese Quiche as a luxurious breakfast, a sophisticated brunch option, or even a light dinner paired with a crisp salad. Its combination of sweet onions, tangy goat cheese, and delicate eggs is sure to be a favorite.
