Wonderful tasting Quiche Lorraine!!! I made 1/2 of the recipe and used 4 small tart/pie pans which worked out perfectly with the amount of filling. I loved the amount of onion, cheese and bacon for the pies, perfect amounts. I am not a fan of nutmeg in my savory pasta or egg dishes, so also really appreciated the cayenne pepper, again, perfect amount, not too hot but gave a nice little bit of heat at the end of the bites. I made my posted recipe for All-Butter Pie Crust for the pie crust and it worked out perfectly to make the 4 mini pies/tarts. As the other reviewer stated, important to pre-cook the pie crust so that you don't have a soggy bottom. I baked my crusts for 10 minutes at 400 degrees and then took them out and let them cool to room temperature prior to adding the filling/ingredients, then followed as written. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe. Made for Everyday is a Holiday Tag Game.
This was a nice, easy and flavorful quiche that didn't take long to prepare at all. I made this exactly as posted, except I baked the bacon on parchment instead of a rack. I like the addition of the cayenne, which is unusual, and didn't miss nutmeg at all. However, the bottom of the crust was a little soggy and didn't cook well, and the onions didn't cook very well at all. Perhaps pre-baking the pie crust would help, and maybe sauteeing the onion a little first. The cooking time was spot on and the quiche was delicate, yet substantial. Made for ZWT8.
