That sounds very similar to another quiche I made a long time ago. I think I may have used half water and half cream to save on carbs.

I've got a huge collection of quiche and other recipes on my website. See my signature for the link.

Olive oil
1 cup onion, slivered
1 clove garlic, minced
3 oz. shredded mozzarella
4 oz. Roma tomatoes, sliced thin
1/4 cup fresh basil, shredded fine
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup water
1/4 t. pepper
1/2 t. salt
6 eggs

Grease a 9-10" pie plate. Saute the onions and garlic in oil until slightly browned. Spread in bottom of quiche pan. Top with the cheese. Arrange tomato slices over the cheese. Top with basil. Mix the cream, water, salt, pepper and eggs; whisk well. Pour evenly over everything in the pan. Bake at 350║ for 35 minutes until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting. Makes 6 servings (5 carbs each)

Sounds great. Last week I make the onion pie (yum!) and a tomato pie from a recipe from Sara Molton. This combines them both and would be great with a steak!

I made the tomato onion pie last night and it was soooo good! Thanks for the recipe! I will definatley make it again and again!
I dice the onion up real small though - I LIKE onion, I just don't like big pieces of it! (same with green pepper) I guess because I didn't like them as a kid... my brain still thinks I'm not supposed to like em! Hey, this would be good with a little green pepper in it too...

Thanks for 2 good recipes. I'll make one of them this weekend. DH is tired of meat all the time. Wants some carbs so I might make him some risotto this weekend and me the quiche.
