Homemade Quiche

Homemade Quiche

1- 9 in pie crust (store bought or homemade)
1 1/3 cup heavy cream
4 large eggs (beaten)
6 slices bacon (cooked & chopped- i use the Pre-Cooked stuff)
1 1/2 cups shredded Swiss Cheese (i used 1 cup Gruyere & 1/2 cup Swiss)
3/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp white pepper
1 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp sugar (optional- i left it out)

Directions: Pre-heat oven to 425°

Press the pie crust into a 9 in pie plate & flute edges. Bake for approx 7-8 minutes. Remove.

While the crust is baking: Cook bacon & chop. Whisk together the cream, eggs, sugar (optional), salt, pepper & onion powder

Sprinkle 3/4 cup of the cheese into the of the pie crust. Then sprinkle 1/2 the bacon.

Pour 1/2 the cream/egg mixture into the crust- sprinkle the rest of the cheese on top & then pour the other 1/2 of the cream/egg mixture in. Sprinkle the top with the rest of the bacon.

Foil the edges of the crust:

Bake in the 425° oven for 15 min. Turn oven down to 300° and bake for an addtl 30 min (or until a knife inserted 1 in from the edge comes out clean)

Let it sit for 10 min before cutting. This turned out awesome! You can always toss in some ham or broccoli or peppers or whatever. Quiche is easy to play up!
