1 unbaked pastry shell (10 inches)
1 medium onion, chopped
1 tablespoon butter
2 cups (8 ounces) shredded Swiss cheese
1 can (14-3/4 ounces) salmon, drained, flaked and cartilage removed
2 cups half-and-half cream
1/4 teaspoon salt
Minced fresh parsley, optional
Line unpricked pastry shell with a double thickness of heavy-duty foil.
Bake at 450 for 8 minutes. Remove foil; bake 5 minutes longer. Cool on a wire rack.
In a small skillet, saute onion in butter until tender. Sprinkle Swiss cheese in the crust; top with the salmon and onion.
In a bowl, beat eggs, cream and salt; pour over salmon mixture. Bake at 350 for 45-50 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Sprinkle with parsley if desired. Let stand for 5 minutes before cutting. Yield: 6-8 servings.
