But, after the basic cream/egg mixture, everything else is optional - so my quiches are rarely the same.
1 Pie Crust
8 slices of bacon, cooked crisply
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup diced swiss cheese (most recipes call for grated cheese, but cubed is better)
2 cups half and half or cream or sour cream or 1 cup milk and 1 cup cream
4 large eggs
salt & pepper (about 1/2 tsp of each)
Sautee the onions slowly in a bit of the bacon fat until they are almost carmelized.
Preheat oven to 425F.
Beat eggs, cream, salt and pepper together.
Sprinkle crumbled bacon, cheese and onions into pie crust.
Pour cream mixture over pie.
Bake 15 minutes, then lower heat to 300F and bake about 20 minutes - until knife inserted in center comes out clean.
