Chopped onion, shredded Swiss cheese and egg form a rich mixture for this Quiche Lorraine. Baked in a deep-dish crust and seasoned with pepper and nutmeg this is the perfect dish for a church supper, potluck or buffet, or slice thinly for an appetizer or side dish.
- 1 unbaked 9-inch (4-cup volume) deep-dish pie shell
- 6 slices bacon, chopped
- 1/2 cup chopped onion
- 1 1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded Swiss cheese
- 1 can (12 fluid ounces) NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk
- 3 large eggs, well beaten
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
PREHEAT oven to 350° F.
COOK bacon in large skillet over medium heat. When bacon starts to turn brown, add onion. Cook until bacon is crisp; drain. Sprinkle cheese into bottom of pie shell. Top with bacon mixture. Combine evaporated milk, eggs, salt, pepper and nutmeg in small bowl until blended. Pour into pie shell.
BAKE for 30 to 35 minutes or until knife inserted halfway between center and edge comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes on wire rack before serving.
NOTE: Quiche fits a variety of meal occasions from brunch to dinner and also makes an outstanding appetizer. If using metal or foil pans, bake on preheated heavy-duty baking sheet.
Review This Recipe
I made 2 quiches with this recipe but added other ingredients, one with breakfast sausage, peppers, cheddar cheese onions & mushrooms and the other with shrimp, imitation crab, monterey jack cheese and mushrooms, both were light and custard like instead of like scrambled eggs.
