Mmmmmm! Quiche Lorraine!
It was heavenly! It will last me for 4 meals and I will savor each one. Doesn't it look scrumptious?
It is so easy to make as well. I guess I will share my recipe with you!
A 9" unbaked deep dish pie crust (Do NOT use Fred Meyer brand--it is awful)
12-14 cooked slices of bacon, cut up into small pieces (this time I used a package of pre-cooked bacon to save the hassle of frying and it worked great!)
1 1/2 cups of shredded Swiss cheese
2 cups of half-and-half
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon finely ground pepper
If you like onion, you can add 1/4 to 1/3 cup of finely diced onion
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Sprinkle a layer of Swiss cheese, bacon (and onion if wanted) in pie shell; repeat till all in. Place on cookie sheet.
In large mixing bowl, beat the eggs with a fork till blended. Then add the half-and-half, salt & pepper and blend well with fork. Slowly pour the mixture over the items in the pie crust using fork to move a bit to allow it all to soak in. Bake for 15 minutes at 425 degrees. Reduce heat to 300 degrees and bake for 30 minutes more or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool to warm and gobble it up!
You can substitute the bacon with 1 cup chopped up cooked chicken, or 1 cup chopped cooked ham or whatever you want to try!
