I always use a frozen deep-dish pie crust for my quiche recipes. There is no need to prebake the crust. It will bake along with the quiche and be perfect.
How do you know when the quiche is done? It will puff up and won't be jiggly in the middle.
The french onion flavor comes from a container of French Onion Dip. You want to look for a sour cream-based French Onion Dip. I prefer Kraft, but any of the refrigerated sour cream-based French Onion dips will work great - Helluva Good, Dean's, Barber's. Just use your favorite!
I can't find sour cream french onion dip. What can I use instead? If you can't find the sour cream dip, you can substitute regular sour cream and a spoonful of onion soup mix.
You can make this quiche ahead of time and refrigerate it overnight.
You can make this quiche ahead of time and freeze unbaked for later. When you are ready to bake the quiche, thaw it completely in the fridge and bake as directed below. I always have at least one quiche in the freezer for a quick meal.
You can also freeze any leftovers. I like to cut the leftover quiche into slices and freeze them. I wrap the slices in plastic wrap and store them in a ziplock freezer bag. Just thaw and reheat in the microwave when you are ready to eat.
