This is great for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner. Heck, it’s even great for in between. Quiche is just yummy at any time of the day.
And, instead of using the traditional pie crust, I used the pat-in-the-pan pie crust I blogged about the other day (minus the fructose, cinnamon, and vanilla extract).
1 recipe Pie Crust (omit the fructose, cinnamon, and vanilla extract from the recipe!)
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
Preheat oven to 177°C (350°F). Use your toaster oven to make this quicker and more environmentally friendly!
Cook bacon in the microwave until crisp. Once cool, crumble 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, salt, pepper, bacon, and cheese mixture. Mix well.
Ladle into the pie crust-lined pie dish.
Bake for 30-45 minutes or until knife inserted into center comes out clean. Let it stand for 10 minutes before serving.
