Quiche Lorraine




Happy Easter! I hope everyone has a wonderful day! I decided to make a quiche for breakfast this morning since we will be going to my parents for Easter dinner and I won't be doing any cooking today.

  •  9 inch single crust pie
  •  12 slices bacon
  • 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese                   
  • 1/3 cup minced onion                   
  • 4 eggs, beaten 
  •  2 cups light cream (I used whole milk
  •  3/4 teaspoon salt
  •  1/4 teaspoon white sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F
  2. Place bacon in a large skillet, and fry over medium-high heat until crisp. Drain on paper towels, then chop coarsely. Sprinkle bacon, cheese and onion into pastry shell.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, cream, salt, sugar and cayenne pepper. Pour mixture into pastry shell.
  4. Bake 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Reduce heat to 300 degrees F, and bake an additional 30 minutes, or until a knife inserted 1 inch from edge comes out clean. Allow quiche to sit 10 minutes before cutting into wedges.
