Quiche Lorraine


NOT figure friendly, but delicious.

Frozen pie crusts (package of 2)
6 eggs, beaten
3 cups whole milk
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
Dash ground nutmeg
3 cups shredded Gruyere cheese
2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
12 slices center-cut bacon
2 medium sweet onions, sliced

Pre-bake pie shells according to package directions, then reduce oven temperature to 325° F.

Meanwhile, stir together eggs, milk, salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Toss together Gruyere and flour. Add to egg mixture.

Cook bacon until crisp. Drain, reserving 2 Tablespoons of the drippings. Crumble bacon; set aside. Cook onion in drippings over medium heat until tender; drain.

Add bacon, onion, and Gruyere-flour mixture to egg mixture.

Pour egg mixture equally into both hot pastry shells. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. If necessary, cover edge of crust with foil to prevent overbrowning. Let stand for 10 minutes.

Serves 12.
