Quiche Lorraine


I do not care what they say.

Real men do eat quiche.

Well, at least the hubster does. Quiche is just a fancy term for egg pie.

Who doesn’t love a egg pie?

There is more variations on the quiche than I care to count. Of course my favorite is Quiche Lorraine.

Sometimes during Lent I substitute the bacon for bacos. It is almost as good and a great no meat alternative to breakfast lunch or dinner. Unless you gave up cheese or pie for Lent and if that is the case I feel sorry for you.

My suggestion is enjoy this before Lent. With the bacon of course, who doesn’t love bacon?

Quiche Lorraine


6 strips cooked bacon

1 9 inch pie shell store bought or homemade

1/2 cup grated Gruyere cheese

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1/8 teaspoon nutmeg

3 large eggs and just enough milk to make 1 1/2 cups


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Break up the pieces of bacon and put them in the bottom of the pie shell. Sprinkle all but a tablespoon of cheese over the bacon.
In a 2 cup measuring bowl add salt, pepper, nutmeg, eggs and enough milk to make 1 1/2 cups. Whisk to combine. Pour it over the bacon and cheese to within 1/8 of an inch to the rim. Sprinkle with the rest of the cheese and bake 30-35 minutes in a oven until puffed and browned.

Peace be with you,
