This easy, elegant quiche makes a delicious brunch, lunch or dinner served with a fresh fruit salad. Quiche Lorraine can be prepared 2-4 hours in advance of baking; chill until ready to bake.
INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):
- 1 (9 inch) unbaked (4-cup volume) deep-dish pie shell
- 6 slices bacon
- 1/2 cup chopped onion
- 1 1/2 cups shredded Swiss cheese
- 1 (12 fluid ounce) can NESTLE® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk
- 3 large eggs
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
PREHEAT oven to 350 degrees F.
COOK bacon in large skillet over medium heat. When bacon starts to turn brown, add onion. Cook until bacon is crisp; drain. Sprinkle cheese into bottom of pie shell. Top with bacon mixture. Combine evaporated milk, eggs, salt, pepper and nutmeg in small bowl until blended. Pour into pie shell.
BAKE for 30 to 35 minutes or until knife inserted halfway between center and edge comes out clean. Cool for 5 minutes on wire rack before serving.
NOTE: Quiche fits a variety of meal occasions from brunch to dinner and also makes an outstanding appetizer. If using metal or foil pans, bake on preheated heavy-duty baking sheet.
