Here's the Quiche Lorraine Me and My Mom Made!
It tastes super rich and creamy. I love it! Me and Mom made two and devoured them in a couple days. So, to anyone who is curious, here's the recipe:
- 1 Pie crust
- 6 lean bacon slices
- 3/4 cup heavy cram, at room temperature
- 3/4 cup milk, at room temperature
- 3 eggs, at room temperature
- 1 Tbs. unsalted butter, melted
- 1 cup shredded Gruyere cheese
- salt, freshly ground black pepper, cayenne pepper, and freshly grated nutmeg, to taste.
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
- In a fry pan over medium-high heat, fry the bacon until crisp and golden, 3-5 minutes. Transfer to paper towels to drain. When cool enough to handle, crumble into small bits. Scatter the crumbled bacon over the bottom of the pastry shell.
- In a bowl, combine the cream, milk, eggs, and melted butter. Using a whisk or fork, beat until well blended. Stir in the cheese and season with salt, black pepper and cayenne pepper. Pour into the prepared pastry shell and sprinkle the top lightly with nutmeg.
- Bake until the custard is set and the tip of a knife inserted into the center of the custard comes out clean, 25-30 minutes. Remove from the oven and let stand for several minutes before serving.
