Gouda, Coleslaw & Caraway Quiche

I swapped caraway Gouda for the gruyere and caraway seed in the recipe - you could of course do either. Adapted from Bon Appétit, December 1990.

  • Makes: Serves 8-10.

Ingredients

4 bacon slices, chopped

1 medium onion, chopped

2-3 cups coleslaw or shredded green cabbage

3 large eggs

1 cup half & half or milk

1 cup grated Gouda or Gruyère cheese (or more, if you like - just wing it)

1/2 tsp. caraway seeds (optional)

salt & pepper

1 9" deep-dish pie crust

Directions

1Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line your pastry crust with foil and pie weights (if you have them) and bake for 15-20 minutes, until pale golden. Remove the foil and weights and turn the oven up to 375°F.

2Meanwhile, cook the bacon in a large heavy skillet over medium heat, add onion and cook until the bacon is crisp and the onion is tender. Add the coleslaw and cook until it wilts and all excess moisture evaporates, 10-15 minutes

3In a medium bowl whisk together the eggs, half & half, cheese, caraway seed (if you're using it) salt and pepper. Spread the cabbage mixture into the crust and pour the egg mixture overtop. Bake until filling puffs and starts to brown, about 40 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
