Quiche Lorraine is the original French quiche recipe, from which all other quiche recipes developed.

It is a delicious mix of flavors and so very easy to make.

Quiche Lorraine

 

Ingredients

  • 6 slices bacon cut into 1/2" pieces
  • 1 cup onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups Swiss/Gruyere cheese, diced or grated
  • 9" partially baked pie shell
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 2 cups cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon
  • ground nutmeg
  • white pepper (use black pepper if that is all you have)

Method

Step 1

Cook bacon until almost crisp. Remove it from the pan and drain on paper towels. Sauté onion in 2 tablespoons of bacon drippings until tender.

Step 2

Preheat oven to 450ºF.

Step 3

Bake the pie shell for just a few minutes. Cover the bottom of the partially baked pie shell with onions, bacon and cheese. Beat eggs and cream together with the salt, nutmeg and white pepper. Pour all into the pie shell.

Step 4

Bake for 10 minutes, then lower the heat to 350ºF and bake another 15 minutes.

Step 5

Makes 6 smaller or 4 large servings.

Did You Know?…

Okay, I agree that the bacon, cheese and cream does not make this a low fat recipe, but you just eat a wedge for a serving.

Combine it with other vegetables and a salad and it makes a wonderful lunch or brunch recipe or an easy to make light dinner recipe.

    Always taught to “strain” egg mixture into shell. I always use milk (not so calorific)

    I love this recipe, it is the same as I’ve been using for 40 years, except I didn’t use cream, I used milk, but I will try half cream and half milk.
