Quiche with Onions and Cheddar

Quiche is a recipe that can be tweaked and changed depending on what flavors you want or what you happen to have on hand.   Once you have the basic method, its a cinch to whip up in no time especially if you use a pre-made crust.  This was made with caramelized onions, back bacon and cheddar.

Arthritis Kitchen Tip:  Did you know that the anti inflammation properties of the onion are concentrated most in the outer layers closest to the skin.  In order to benefit most from these  health boosting flavonoids peel off as few layers of possible when prepping your onions.
