 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      8            prebaked quiche shell
    7      tbsps         unsalted butter
    2      lbs           sliced onions
    2      tbsps         safflower oil
    2      tbsps         flour
    3      lg            eggs
    1      c             heavy cream
    3      ozs           Gruyere cheese -- freshly grated
 
 Preheat the oven to 375°.  Dice 3 T butter and refrigerate. In a large
 saute pan, cook the onions in the remaining butter and oil, starting over
 medium heat and gradually reducing to low heat, for about 1 hour, until the
 onions are very tender, golden, and reduced considerably in size.  Stir
 continuously for the last 15 min and be very careful not to let them burn.
 They will be extraordinarily sweet and delectable.  Discard any burned
 parts.  Sprinkle the onions w/the flour, using a strainer or sifter, and
 saute another 2 or 3 minutes.
  Beat the eggs and cream in a bowl with a third of the cheese.  Stir in the
 onions, then pour the mixture into the quiche shell.  Sprinkle with
 remaining cheese and dot with the diced butter.  Bake 25-30 minutes or
 until browned and set.
