This quiche Lorraine recipe yields a rich egg pie and hails from the mountainous region of Lorraine in northern France. Sufficient for a filling meal in itself, quiche Lorraine has been adapted over the years from a humble custard and bacon pie to the substantial cheese, bacon, and egg creation that it is known for today.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 50 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour

Ingredients:

  • 1 layer pastry dough
  • 4 slices bacon, crumbled
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup half and half
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1 cup Gruyere cheese, shredded

Preparation:

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Fit the pastry into a deep-dish pie pan. Sprinkle the bacon onto the bottom layer of the pastry. Beat together the eggs, half and half, salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Pour the eggs over the bacon and sprinkle with the shredded cheese. Bake the quiche for 45-50 minutes, until the eggs are set in the middle. Cool slightly and serve.

Makes 8 servings.

Even better if. . ., Member I_Fortuna

I have used this recipe for years and if you have time, briefly blend the liquids in the blender. Your quiche will be fluffly and light. Of course, a dash of nutmeg is a lovely touch!
