    Substituted cipollini onions for Vidalia.

    I just made this and it came out perfect! I used Jarlsberg cheese and shredded it finely. Couldn’t find 6 ounces of crabmeat, so I grabbed the 8-ounce container of “Special” crabmeat. I always skip the cayenne pepper when making a quiche. Thank you for sharing a great recipe!
