New Quiche Lorraine

Recipe by  

"I discovered quiche Lorraine while studying French in high school. After trying many recipes over the years and being dissatisfied with each one I have put my own spin on this classic recipe that results in a crisp crust and tender custard. Serve with a side salad if desired. Bon appetite!"

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain bacon slices on paper towels; crumble. Reserve about 2 tablespoons bacon drippings in the skillet.
  3. Cook and stir onion and garlic in reserved bacon drippings over medium heat until onion is softened, 5 to 10 minutes.
  4. Place thawed pie crust in a pie dish; prick holes in the bottom and sides of crust using a fork.
  5. Bake crust in the preheated oven until lightly browned, about 8 minutes. Remove crust from oven and reduce oven temperature to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  6. Whisk half-and-half and sour cream together in a bowl; beat eggs into half-and-half mixture. Mix Swiss cheese, salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper into half-and-half mixture; add bacon, onion mixture, and parsley. Pour mixture into the crust.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven until a knife inserted into the center of the quiche comes out clean, about 45 to 50 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes before slicing into wedges.

Normally I only use recipes that have at least 50+ reviews. When I tried this one, it only had 1 review with 5 stars. I am sooo glad I took the chance on it. It's terrific! I didn't have swiss cheese, but I did have shredded Italian Blend cheese, so I used it instead. And because I had 2 shallow pie crusts, I added an extra egg and dollup of sour cream to the mix so I could fill both pie pans. Well, it was absolutely delish! Even my husband, who doesn't like quiche much, loved it! Definitely a keeper... the recipe AND the husband! LOL

I didn't get to try this, as I brought it in for work, and there was nothing left. So . . .it was a success at work, I guess. This was very easy to put together, but I can't speak to taste other than it was all eaten. Thanks for the recipe!

Loved it! The half and half plus the sour cream really worked. I did change it a little. instead of bacon, I used 8 ounces mushrooms, sautéed in butter after I cooked the onions. I used NY sharp cheddar and omitted the garlic. I only used a little bit of parsley and minced it. I cooked it for 50 minutes, but it could have used about 5 or 10 more minutes. Nevertheless, people loved it. They said they liked having the mushrooms instead of the bacon.
