New Quiche Lorraine

Rated as 4.57 out of 5 Stars

"I discovered quiche Lorraine while studying French in high school. After trying many recipes over the years and being dissatisfied with each one I have put my own spin on this classic recipe that results in a crisp crust and tender custard. Serve with a side salad if desired. Bon appetite!"

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain bacon slices on paper towels; crumble. Reserve about 2 tablespoons bacon drippings in the skillet.
  3. Cook and stir onion and garlic in reserved bacon drippings over medium heat until onion is softened, 5 to 10 minutes.
  4. Place thawed pie crust in a pie dish; prick holes in the bottom and sides of crust using a fork.
  5. Bake crust in the preheated oven until lightly browned, about 8 minutes. Remove crust from oven and reduce oven temperature to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  6. Whisk half-and-half and sour cream together in a bowl; beat eggs into half-and-half mixture. Mix Swiss cheese, salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper into half-and-half mixture; add bacon, onion mixture, and parsley. Pour mixture into the crust.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven until a knife inserted into the center of the quiche comes out clean, about 45 to 50 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes before slicing into wedges.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Depending on your oven you may wish to line the rim of the crust with aluminum foil to prevent excessive browning.

I felt this recipe was rather bland. I only made it because I had the ingredients listed. Both my husband and I ended up putting hot sauce on it. I will not make it again.

No change . Easy and delicious. Pair good with fresh fruit.

Grade A+++. My family devoured it.

I didn't get to try this, as I brought it in for work, and there was nothing left. So . . .it was a success at work, I guess. This was very easy to put together, but I can't speak to taste oth...

super easy to throw together! I even added a handful ( so maybe 1/2-3/4 cup ) of fresh baby spinach. Now when I make it I will make two, one to freeze for later or maybe just double the reci...

Easy recipe to make. I brushed a tablespoon of Dijon mustard onto the crust before adding the other ingredients. Good with a salad for Sunday brunch.

I made this for a brunch and there wasn't a crumb left. Everyone raved about it and said it was the best quiche they ever had. I added a little Canadian bacon, but otherwise followed the direc...

I had to make it quick, so I used packaged real bacon pieces, and dried parsley. Very good recipe. Hopefully I'll have more time next time (when I'm not caring for a sick family member).
