Quiche Lorraine

This is a family favorite in my home and it's so easy! I originally got the recipe from a 1971 Betty Crocker Cookbook and have adapted the recipe to my family's taste preferences.

Quiche Lorraine

Pastry for 9-inch Deep Dish One-crust Pie
(I use a frozen Deep Dish pie crust thawed to room temperature)

9 slices bacon, crisply fried, drained on paper towels and crumbled
2 Cups shredded natural Swiss Cheese (about 8 ounces)
1/3 Cup minced onion
4 Eggs
1 Cup Whipping Cream or 10% light cream
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon sugar
1/8 teaspoon Cayenne Red Pepper

Heat oven to 425 degrees.

Prepare pastry and combine the crumbled bacon, cheese and minced onion and place in the pie crust.

I use a whisk to beat the eggs slightly, then blend together with the whipping cream, salt, sugar and cayenne pepper.

Pour the cream mixture into the pie pan, covering your bacon, cheese and onion.

Bake 15 minutes at 425 degrees.

Now turn down the oven temperature to 300 degrees and bake for another 30 minutes.

After the 30 minutes, check to see if the quiche is completely cooked by inserting a knife about 1 inch from the side of the pie pan, if it comes out clean it's finished.

Remove from the oven, let it stand for 10 minutes, slice and serve.

You can serve this with your favorite salad and it's delicious easy dinner!


  1. Sandy,
    I love quiche, haven't made it in ages. You just gave me my dinner menu. Quiche, spinach salad & fruit. Thanks! Also, thanks for the very nice comments you leave for me. About the chair. The fabric came from Joann's with 50% off coupon. It's very old pattern but I wanted a french look. The technique I use for the chair is a lot of steps but the result is worth it. I do all of my stuff this way. It looks better in person. Here you go. First, clean & sand lightly. Paint white. You can be sloppy, it doesn't have to be perfect. Then my secret, rub'n buff metallic finish from Michaels. It's in a tube. I used Pewter on this chair, but antique gold is also nice. Rub it w/ your finger in grooves and curves. Then buff briwax onto the whole thing. Polish it up good. When finished go back with a light sanding & hit spots that are too dark or that you don't like. All of the different layers show thru & it looks really aged. Wow, sorry so long. Lisa

  2. Okay - i'm notorious for burning my kitchen down when I attempt to do anything that requires fire/ovens/pans... but I just printed this out and handed it to my best friend while slinging my grinning request for this tomorrow. LOLOL

    That looks SOOOOO good!!! And! I love your white plate! GORGEOUS lines!!!

    Thank You for getting my belly growlin' this morning!!!
