Quiche Lorraine

Recipe by pammyowl
READY IN: 1hr 15mins
YIELD: 1 pie




  • Prepare your pastry dough and line your pie plate and refrigerate the crust while you bake your bacon. 400 degrees for 17 minutes, on a wire rack, over a cookie sheet. Let the bacon cool, so you can handle it.
  • Meanwhile, dice the onion, and grate the cheese.
  • Place the now diced bacon on the bottom of the pie shell, then the onion, the cheese, and the mixture of the milk, cream,eggs and spices over top. I usually do this with the pie shell already in the oven, to avoid spills.
  • Bake at 425 for 15 minutes, reduce heat to 350, and bake for 30-35 minutes longer, until a knife test comes out almost clean. Eggs continue to cook after they are taken out of the oven, so try not to overbake.
  • You may want to blind bake the crust, and saute the onions for a few minutes to soften, but I never do. Completely up to the chef!
  • Let sit for 15-30 minutes, then enjoy!
