Classic Quiche Lorraine

Turn your kitchen into a quaint French bistro with this Classic Quiche Lorraine.

Yield: Makes 6 servings


  • 1 9-inch pie crust
  • 8 slices bacon, crisply cooked and crumbled, drippings reserved
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups half-and-half
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 1/2 cup shredded Swiss or
  • Gruyère cheese


  1. Arrange pie crust in a 9-inch pie plate; press a double layer of aluminum foil into crust.
  2. Bake at 450 degrees for 8 minutes; remove aluminum foil and bake an additional 4 to 5 minutes, until crust is set. Cool on a wire rack.
  3. Sauté onion in one tablespoon reserved drippings until tender; drain. Spoon bacon and onion evenly into baked crust. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, half-and-half and seasonings; add cheese and whisk to combine.
  4. Pour into crust; set pie plate on a baking sheet. Bake at 450 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes until quiche is golden, puffed and a knife inserted in center comes out clean.
  5. If necessary, cover edges of crust with foil to prevent burning. Remove from oven; let stand 15 minutes before serving.
