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!

Yield:
1 9-inch quiche

Ingredients

  • 4 slices bacon

  • 1 (9 inch) frozen deep dish pie crust, thawed

  • ½ cup diced white onion

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 1 cup half-and-half

  • ½ cup sour cream

  • 4 large eggs, beaten

  • ½ cup shredded Swiss cheese

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley

Directions

  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.

Cook's Note:

Depending on your oven you may wish to line the rim of the crust with aluminum foil to prevent excessive browning.
