Onion & Bacon Pie

Not blogging, but took a couple of pictures yesterday lunchtime and thought I'd share with the bacon loving community

It's the time of year when we traditionally eat Zwiebelkuchen (literally "onion cake"), preferably with a glass or two of Federweisser (grape juice that has just started fermenting).

Alternatively white wine will do.

In short: make some yeast dough from approx. 300g flour. While it rises fry some 50-100g chopped bacon set it aside. Sweat/sauté 500-1000g of chopped & salted onions and let them cool. Mix onions with fried bacon, pepper, 2-4 eggs & 200-300ml cream. Spread the dough into a springform pan & add onion mix, sprinkle with more bacon and optionally caraway seeds. Bake at approx. 180°C for about 30 minutes.

In other words, quiche.

Yes, suspiciously like "egg pie" as the native Vermonters call it.

I love Zwiebelkuchen. Haven't had it in years. When we would have it, it was usually at a wine festival, and it came in huge sheets, without the crust around the edge, and you would get a rectangular slice. A lot like the rectangular slices that I got as a kid in school lunch.

Yours looks delicious.

Thanks!

glatt, whereabouts have you been eating it? Zwiebelkuchen is the one pie I haven't yet seen in rectangles. Bakeries & street fests here in the southwest of Germany sell slices similar to the one in the image - but selfmade tastes better
