Really good. I put the bacon/onion on top of the cheese, then added the cream/egg mixture. Used 1/4 tsp nutmeg. Dusted top with paprika. Took 45 minutes cooking time. Tasty treat! Good for leftovers, too.
I couldn't find my mom's recipe, so I used this one because it seemed to be very close. It was delicious! Modifications - I didn't have shallot, so I skipped it. I didn't have parsley. I had chopped an onion for another quiche recipe, so I just used what was left (maybe 3/4 c?). I had sliced, packaged Swiss cheese, so just diced that up for the cheese. My technique was to put the bacon, onion, and cheese in the shell and pour the custard over it. Also, I heat the cream before adding the eggs.
We loved this quiche! especially enjoyed the gruyere cheese, wonderful flavour! I made it as the recipe calls for except for the half and half, I used 2% milk and about a half teaspoon of nutmeg. DH has already asked for it to be a regular. Thanks for posting!
This was a wonderful quiche! I did not add the cheese however, as I wanted to try to keep to an original quiche recipe as much as possible! (I had to add the onions and shallot however!) We ate it with a mixed salad for lunch and it was extremely tasty. One point - it was baked after 35 minutes and was very "set" - I quite like my quiche with a bit of a "wobble" as it firms up so much when it is cook.....so I might adjust the baking times OR reduce the oven temperature next time. I made my own pastry and I did not add the mustard powder either, forgot to mention that earlier. Made for French Food and Photo Fun - thanks for posting a classic, we loved it! FT:-)
