WOW, it's August 21st already. I've been thinking about Thanksgiving and our huge planned family get together of 50 or so people, Christmas time, visiting and being visited, and of course having prepared snacks to offer. My husband and I were visiting friends during the holiday season of 1980 (I remember when it was because our daughter was a baby, having been born in March of 1980). Anyway, we were offered these delicious quiche tarts and my husband HAD to have the recipe. In looking at it now, I can see that it has had a lot of use in the past. I will have to write out a new recipe card! I have not made them since my husband passed away 9 years ago. But since I've come across it, I think I'll add it to the list of "things to make and freeze and have ready with short notice". So, here it is:
To 3 c finely chopped onions (I used food processor) , add 1/4 c melted butter; stir in 2 Tbs flour and cook over medium heat for five minutes.
Mix together: 2 eggs, beaten
1 c heavy cream
1/2 lb grated Swiss cheese
Combine above mixture with onion mixture; add salt and pepper to taste.
Line mini muffin pans with crescent roll dough (need 2 containers of them - I get about 3 per slice). Fill each with a heaping Tbs of mixture and bake at 350 degrees F for 15 minutes.
If you don't eat them all - freeze after cooling and removing from pan. When ready to eat some, take out of freezer and place on baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees F for 15 minutes. Makes 41 to 44 tarts.
Perhaps my daughter and I can make a couple of batches of these together one day soon.
