Quiche Lorraine

Wednesday, February 9, 2011

My mom called me the other day while she was at the grocery store, to have me tell her the ingredients for this family favorite quiche.  I went straight to the computer to look it up here on Recipe Shoebox and lo and behold, I've never published it.  I decided to remedy the situation and make it ASAP.  So here it is, the quiche recipe we've been making and loving for the better part of a decade.  :)  Look for the make-ahead tips at the bottom to cut down on the morning prep time.

The ingredients:
9-inch pie crust
1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
6 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
3/4 cup ham, minced
2 green onions, chopped
1/2 green or red pepper, diced
3 eggs
1 cup heavy cream
1/2 tsp. grated lemon peel
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. dry mustard

Directions:  Bake unpricked pie crust for 5 minutes at 425 degrees.

Remove from oven  and arrange cheese,

and ham in bottom of shell.
Sprinkle with green onions and green or red pepper. 

In a medium bowl, combine eggs, cream, lemon peel, salt, and dry mustard.  Pour evenly over cheese mixture. 
Bake at 325 degrees for 45 minutes or until set.  Remove from heat and let stand about 10 minutes before serving.  Serves 8. 



The night before you can:
Cook and crumble the bacon
Chop the ham, peppers, and green onions
Shred the Swiss cheese
Make and bake the pie crust (it only needs to bake for 5 minutes before adding everything)

In a gallon size Ziploc baggie, combine everything, but the crust and the egg mixture.  In the morning, you can put all the ingredients in the crust and throw it in the oven.

This is one of those recipes that is a total family pleaser, even my husband would eat this quiche (he loves meat). Look like a beauty!

Your quiche looks delicious! I've only tried quiche once or twice, but have never attempted to make it. I love the "make ahead" tips...I always feel like I'm running in 80 directions, so I love it when I can get things done ahead of time!

I made this for dinner this week--delicious! I was pressed for time so I used a frozen crust, still yummy. Thanks.

I can't eat peppers - do you think spinach and tomatoes would substitute well?

I made this for a brunch yesterday and it turned out awesome! Everyone loved it and asked for seconds.

I liked how it was relatively easy to make. I used (real) bacon bits instead of regular bacon and regular mustard instead of dry mustard and it turned out delicious!
