  • 2 large onions, diced
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

    The french onion soup quiche was delicious! It’s so creamy and really does taste like onion soup. It is going in my “make again” file!

    • You can also save it to your recipe box – thanks for letting us know you liked it.

  2. What can I use as a substitute for shredded Gruyere? I have never seen that kosher here where I live.

      Even in NY I had a hard time finding kosher gruyere. You can substitute swiss cheese and use a soft cheese with it to balance out the sharpness and make it more creamy – like Fontina and maybe Havarti would work.

    I’m new to Israel and I no longer have access to those frozen Mrs. Smith pie shells I loved to use. Do you know a good Israeli brand I can buy?

    • Maadanot makes a nice pie crust in a roll – called batzek parich merudad, and it comes in salty and sweet varieties. Check your local supermarket freezer for a variety of frozen doughs. In a pinch, you can try malawach or puff pastry dough (batzek alim).
