    try using a deep dish crust or a spring form pan with your favorite crust dough ,then, assuming a 9inch deep dish crust ,you will use a dozen whole eggs,a pint of 40% BF whipping cream a tsp gnd nutmeg,1/2 tsp gnd corriander1/4 tsp cayanne and 1 1/2 tsp coarse(kosher)saltbeat the eggs with a wire whisk until they are light lemon colored add the spices amd salt and give it a quick whisk to incorporate them,set this aside

    In a heavy skillet place a tablespoon of butter and place that over a medium flame add about 1 1/2 cups of thinly sliced white onions sautee until they start to caramelize a bit ,remove all but 2 T from pan and set aside ,the remaining two T, you will want to brulet’ them ,that is caramelize them a good deal farther than the onions that will be in the filling when they are all about a medium nut brown remove them to a sepparate dish and set aside as well ,arrange the lighter onions in the bottom of the crust ,and up the sides if you are using the spring form pan ,add a good pound or so of shredded swiss cheese ,sprinkling it over the onions ,til they are all covered ,if this is not enough then add more cheese ,up to another 3/4 pound add the reserved egg mixture and fill the crust to within 1/4 inch from the rim of the crust place the browned onions in the middle of the pie in an artsy fashion then, place this “pie” into a jellyroll pan or similar type of shallow baking pan and fill the outer pan 2/3 full of hot but not boiling wathe ,bake at 275 to 300 f until a clean knife gently inserted into the center of the quiche comes out clean with NO egg on it( about an hourand a half or so) ,remove from oven ,cool for 30 mins and serve warm of put into the fridge for overnight and serve quite cold ,garnish with a small dollop of daisy sour cream ,and some fresh fruit
    a white zinfindelor a light rose will make a good parring to this meal ,you could also serve a dry sherry as well bon-apetit

    on you pastry base put in 6eggs beaten with 3/4 pint of milk and 8oz of strong cheese then put the sliced or diced onion in and bake at gas mark 5 for about 3/4 hour

    When you say thick, you mean more filling? Just add more egg/cream/milk mixture than the recipe shows! And you can just leave the bacon out of a normal quiche recipe. You could add small chunks of Feta cheese and chopped peppers for a tasty alternative.
