I decided to try a quiche over the weekend. I love Quiche Lorraine and I’ve never made it, so I thought I’d give it a try. It was very yummy and I actually eat it for dinner with a salad. My Texas bestie (hi Robin) & I used to go to Mimi’s and get their Quiche & salad, theirs is very good as well and this reminds me of it. Very simple especially when you cook your bacon in the oven!!!
Quiche Lorraine: - 1 9" deep dish pie crust (I used Marie Calendar's frozen) - 1 bunch green onions (or one sauteed onion) - 8 slices cooked & crumbled bacon (I used thick cut) - 1 1/2 cups shredded swiss cheese - 3 eggs slightly beaten - 1 1/2 cups half & half - 1/4 teas salt & 1/4 teas pepper - 1/8 teas nutmeg
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Take frozen pie crust out to thaw. Cook bacon in oven as directed on package (yes it says right on the package) chop or crumble when done. I chopped up the green onions & used all the stems and about 3/4 of the whites. In bowl mix, eggs with half & half. Add salt, pepper & nutmeg, set aside. Once crust is thawed, add bacon, onions & cheese (I mixed them up a bit). The crust is pretty full but it will all fit. Slowly pour the egg mixture over top. Bake 40-50 minutes until crust is lightly browned and the middle doesn’t jiggle. Let stand 5 minutes & enjoy!
