French Onion, Cheese and Bacon Quiche
1 frozen pastry-style pie crust, OR your favorite pie crust
6 slices bacon, cut into 1 inch pieces
1 small onion, chopped
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 cup shredded Swiss or Gruyere cheese
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
A grating of fresh nutmeg
Line a quiche or pie pan with the pastry. Cook the bacon until crisp. Drain and
place in the bottom of the uncooked pie shell. Saute the onion in bacon fat
until lightly browned. Drain and add to the pie shell. In a small bowl combine
the remaining ingredients and stir to combine thoroughly.
Pour into the pastry shell, and bake in a preheated 375F (190C) oven for 25 to
30 minutes, until the point of a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
Serve hot, warm, or at room temperature.
