Quiche Lorraine


Have you ever eaten miniature quiche?  If you have, chances are you fell in love with them because they are absolutely phenomenal!  Anytime I perused around Costco or Sam's Club, I searched the demo stands for the miniature quiche and by-golly I succeeded about 75% of the time.

Considering that I have the world of cuisine at my fingertips and a heart for attempting new tricks, I have decided to attempt to make my very own recipe of Quiche Lorraine...Or as Brian likes to call it to push my button (Kee-che Loren). This is one French dish that gets my stamp of approval for being fun, easy and positively delicious!

So grab your aprons and oven mitts, because I'm heading back into my kitchen and today we're headed toward France. Bon Voyage! Al vida zein!  Sianara! Ok sorry, I got carried away...

So here's what you'll need!
-4 eggs
-1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
-3 green onions
-1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
-8 slices cooked bacon
-1 pre-made pie crust (let's keep this easy people)
-1/2 tsp salt
-1/2 tsp pepper
-1/2 tsp  nutmeg

Steps
1. Follow the instructions on the pre-made pie crust.  If for they're not available and the crust is froze, your best bet is to let it thaw for 10 minutes then poke it evenly with a fork and bake it in the oven for 8 minutes on 350 degrees (Poking the pie crust evenly allows the crust to bake evenly without air bubbles)
2. While the pie crust is in the oven, shred the Swiss cheese with a cheese shredder.  I will be very surprised if you found pre-shredded Swiss cheese...and if you did, please tell me where you found it!

 3. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees
4. Cook 8 strips of bacon on medium heat and once finished, place them on a plate covered with paper towel (The paper towel absorbs the excess grease from the bacon)
5. Chop the bacon coarsely 
6. Place the bacon and cheese atop the pie crust

7. Finely chop the green onion
8. Whisk all the remaining ingredients together and place it over the cheese and bacon
9. Bake the quiche for 15 minutes on 375 then lower the temperature to 350 for another twenty minutes or until golden brown


Serve warm and enjoy!
