Pumpkin Quiche

A creamy pumpkin custard with caramelized onions and a sharp blue cheese.  I made these single serving pumpkin quiches a couple of weeks ago, and am finally getting around to posting the recipe.  I do appreciate the irony of posting this recipe in succession to my pumpkin pie recipe, but the timing is purely coincidental and the result of poor planning on my part.
