1 large onion, sliced thin, 5 1/2 ounces *
8 ounces Monterey jack cheese, shredded
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon chili powder (regular and chipotle are both good)
SautÚ the onion in butter until tender and slightly caramelized. Place the cheese in a greased pie plate; top with the onions. Beat the eggs, cream and seasonings. Pour over all. Bake at 350║ for 35-40 minutes until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting.

* Any yellow onion will do because it's cooked long enough to caramelize it and make it sweet, but a Vidalia or Texas 1015 onion would be wonderful.
