Sometimes you just feel like quiche. The weather’s getting colder and I end up craving comfort food all the time. So I went to Dominick’s and got all the ingredients to make a quiche… but I decided to buy pie crust instead of making it, considering I’ve never made it before. Sometime I will though.
This was actually a lot easier to do than I thought it would be! So you can do it too.
- 1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch single crust pie
- 6 slices bacon (I did 9 slices)
- 1 onion, sliced
- 3 eggs, beaten
- 1 1/2 cups milk (I used half & half)
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 cups shredded Swiss cheese
- 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line pastry shell with foil and beans or rice to hold the shape. Bake in oven for 8 minutes. Remove foil and bake for an additional 5 minutes, or until crust is set and dry. Remove from oven and turn down temperature to 325 degrees.
- In a large skillet, cook bacon until crisp. Drain and reserve 2 tablespoons of drippings. Crumble the bacon and set aside. Cook onion in skillet with reserved drippings; cook until onion is tender and then drain.
- In a large bowl, mix together milk, salt and eggs. Stir in bacon and onion. In a separate bowl, toss cheese and flour together, then add to egg mixture. Be sure to mix well. Pour egg mixture into pie crust.
- Bake in preheated oven for 45-50 minutes, or until knife inserted in center of quiche comes out clean. If necessary, cover edge of crust with foil while baking to prevent burning or overbrowning. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
