- 1 onion, thinly sliced
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon salt

Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).
Roll out the pie crust and press it into a 9-inch pie dish. Prick the bottom with a fork and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the pumpkin puree, eggs, heavy cream, salt, black pepper, and nutmeg until well combined.
In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the sliced onions and cook for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until they are soft and golden brown. Remove the onions from the skillet and set aside.
Using the same skillet, cook the diced bacon until crispy. Remove the bacon from the skillet and set aside.
Add the caramelized onions and cooked bacon to the mixing bowl with the pumpkin mixture. Stir until well combined.
Pour the mixture into the prepared pie crust and sprinkle the grated cheddar cheese on top.
Bake for 40-45 minutes, or until the filling is set and the top is golden brown.
Remove the quiche from the oven and allow it to cool for a few minutes before slicing and serving.
