Quiche Lorraine

I LOVE quiches. I think they're the best things on earth. Hot or cold, a nice piece of quiche is always a welcomed site. We've tried many recipes and have come up with our own. Try it out as is or add other items... skies the limit.

Here's the recipe:

Pastry for a 9-inch Crust Pie
6-8 slices of Turkey Bacon
1 1/2 C. shredded Swiss cheese
1/3 heaping C of onions (finely chopped)
4 Eggs
2 C Half-and Half
1/4 tsp. Salt
1/4 tsp. Pepper
1/4 tsp. Garlic powder

Pre-heat 425. Start bymaking the pie crust. Bake your crust for 10 minutes with foil wrapped around the edges. Take the foil off and bake for another 3 minutes. Set aside. Reduce the oven to 325.

Cook the bacon in a frying pan. Fry until crispy. Crumble and set aside. You can use regular bacon for this recipe as well. We like turkey bacon because of the smoky flavor and it's a little healthier than pork.

Shred cheese and set aside 1 1/2 cups. Finely chop 1/2 of an onion. This will most likely be a 1/3 cup.
Add the crumbled bacon, onion and cheese to the crust.

In a large bowl, beat eggs with a wisk. Add half-and-half, salt, garlic powder and pepper.

Bake the quiche at 325 for 45-50 minutes. Use the cake method by dipping a knife at the center of the quiche. It the knife comes out clean take it out of the oven. Let it rest for 10 minutes before serving.

As I said at the beginning, you can always add vegetables if you'd like. For example, add broccoli or spinach. This quiche is so yum- delish. If you don't finish it, you can store in the fridge. Enjoy!
