This recipe is from our Bed and Breakfast days. It can be part of a breakfast or luncheon. It is great and easy. Easter is coming so if you have family coming to visit….serve this. They will love you for it.
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 2 tbsp. butter
- 2 tbsp. flour
- 4 large eggs
- 2 cups heavy cream
- 1 tsp. fresh dill, chopped
- 1/4 tsp. yellow mustard
- freshly grated nutmeg
- tabasco, a couple of drops
- 6 oz. swiss or provolone cheese, chilled
- 1 cup flaked smoked salmon (if leftover from last night dinner – great)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a skillet on medium heat, saute the butter and onions until transparent. Add the flour and stir, making a ‘sort of’ roux’.
In a bowl, beat well the eggs, cream, dill and mustard. Add a dash of grated nutmeg and tabasco, mixing well to combine. Mix together with the onion mixture.
Pour the ingredients into a buttered pie plate and slice the cheese thinly and lay over the top . Bake for 35-45 minutes until cooked through. Let cool for 6-7 minutes before slicing and serving. Add fresh fruit (if breakfast) or salad if for lunch.
