My mom makes this quiche. She used to make it for when "the ladies" were coming over for lunch. When I was little, I felt grown up when I got to eat some too.
Quiche Lorraine is still my favorite quiche and I always feel special and "lady like" when I order it in a restaurant. My mom's recipe is still the best. Here it is.
9" deep dish pie shell
1/2 pounds of bacon, cooked and crumbled
6 oz (1 1/2 cups) shredded Swiss cheese
1 1/2 cups half and half
3/4 teaspoons salt
dash of nutmeg
dash of Cayenne pepper
1 Tablespoon flour
Sprinkle bacon on the bottom of the pie shell. Sprinkle cheese on top of bacon. Beat eggs and the rest of the ingredients together and pour in the pie shell. Bake at 375 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until the center is set.
My quiche has baked as long as 1 hour before. Just watch the pie shell so that it does not burn. If it starts to get too brown, cover the shell in foil and bake until the quiche is set.
I hope you enjoy this. It is my favorite!
