My mom makes great quiche. Now, I lived in France for a while, and while I was there I only ate it once and it was “so good” that I can’t even remember what it looked like, needless to say what it tasted like. And, if anyone can remember over decades how somethings tastes, i’s me.
So, I can’t say how this compares to the true thing, but it’s really delicious and easy to make. My mom uses a refrigerated pie crust that she buys ahead of time from the grocery store, but I make my own, and you can do whatever you want
1 Pie Crust (cut the recipe linked to in half for only 1 pie crust)
8 slices of Bacon, crumbled
2 1/2 Cups of shredded Swiss Cheese (I use Emmentaler)
2 Tablespoons of Flour
3/4 Cup of Cream
3/4 Cup of Half and Half (half cream half milk – mix it yourself if you can’t find any)
1/2 teaspoon Salt
Dash of Pepper
1/4 Cup chopped Onions
Preheat oven to 177Â°C (350Â°F).
Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until crisp. Remove to a towel-lined plate to soak off some of the grease, and once cool, crumble. SautÃ© the onion in the bacon drippings until softened and set aside.
Place your pie dough in the pie dish so that it’s ready to have everything poured in; set aside.
In a medium bowl, combine the cheese and flour – mix well. In a large bowl, beat the eggs slightly, and then add cream, half and half, onion, salt, pepper, bacon, and cheese mixture. Mix well.
Ladle into the pie crust-lined pie dish.
Bake for 40-45 minutes or until knife inserted into center comes out clean. Let it stand for 10 minutes before serving.
