Quiche is a savoury, open pastry crust with a filling made with eggs and milk or cream with one or more of cheese, meat, seafood or vegetables. Quiche can be served hot or cold.Our version of Quiche Lorraine is just that: made with a creamy, cheesy, savory center and baked on a flaky, warm crust for a brunch recipe that’s filling.
1Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
2Place bacon in a large skillet, and fry over medium-high heat until crisp. Drain on paper towels, then chop coarsely. Sprinkle bacon, cheese and onion into pastry shell.
3In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, cream, salt, sugar and cayenne pepper. Pour mixture into pastry shell.
4Bake 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Reduce heat to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C), and bake an additional 30 minutes, or until a knife inserted 1 inch from edge comes out clean. Allow quiche to sit 10 minutes before cutting into wedges.
Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.
