    6 eggs
    2 cups cream, gently heated
    ½ tsp salt
    ½ tsp pepper
    ½ cup red onion compote (for 2 quiches)
    1 5.3 oz Chavrie goats milk cheese (for 2 quiches)

    Heat your cream in a saucepan to warm it. Beat 6 eggs, and combine with the warm cream slowly so the eggs don’t curdle. Add the salt and pepper, whisk. Take your Chavrie goat cheese and chop it into small pieces. Take your onion compote and coarsely chop it. Divide your onions and goat cheese up for your 2 quiches and place them evenly on both crusts. Pour your egg and cream mixture evenly into the two pans. Bake at 325˚ for 30-40 minutes or until a knife inserted comes out clean. Remove from oven and cool a bit before slicing.
