My friends from that Northeast state really loved this dish. I made it for breakfast but it can also be breakfast for dinner or lunch! Onion lovers will go crazy for this one!
1 unbaked frozen Pie Crust, thawed
1/4 cup unsalted Butter
1 large Sweet Onion, cut in half and sliced thin
5 Green onions, use both white and green parts, sliced
2 cloves of Garlic, peeled and pressed
1 teaspoon Sugar, Agave Syrup or Sugar Substitute
1 teaspoon Sea Salt
Black Pepper to taste
3/4 teaspoon ground Nutmeg
6 ounces Ricotta Cheese
1 cup Pepper Jack Cheese, shredded
1 cup Cheese, your choice (Swiss, Colby Jack, Mozzarella)
3 Eggs, beaten
2/3 cup Whipping Cream or Half and Half
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Place the thawed pie crust in your pie dish. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions, garlic, salt, pepper and nutmeg to the butter. Sauté about 10 minutes until the onions are soft but not brown. Add ricotta cheese and stir until melted. Add the remaining cheeses. Cool slightly.
In a large bowl combine the eggs and cream. Add the cooled onion mixture to eggs and cream. Stir gently to mix. Pour into the pie crust. Cook for 40 minutes. Cool for 15 minutes to allow the filling to set. Serve warm. Yum!
