Potato Crust (see recipe below)
1 tablespoon butter
3 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup cream, half and half cream, or additional milk (your choice)

Make Potato Crust and bake while you are preparing to the quiche mixture.

In a small frying pan over medium heat, melt butter. Add onion and sauté until soft; remove from heat and set aside.

In a bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, and cream. Stir in the crumbled bacon, onion salt, and pepper; set aside.

Pour the egg mixture over the crust.

Bake approximately 35 to 40 minutes until a knife inserted halfway between center and edge comes out clean

Remove from oven and serve. Serve either hot or warm.

Makes 1 (9-inch pie) - 4 to 6 servings.

Potato Crust:
2 firmly-packed sliced raw potatoes
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten

Vegetable oil

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Oil a 9-inch pie pan. Place raw potatoes in a colander. Salt potatoes and let set for 10 minutes. Squeeze out the excess water.

In a medium bowl, combine potatoes, egg, and onion. Pat potato mixture into prepared pie pan, building up the sides of the crust with lightly floured fingers. NOTE: Try to keep the thickness of the potato crust an even thickness on the sides and bottom.
