Quiche is an oven baked dish made with eggs, milk and sometimes cream placed in a pastry shell. There are some versions with vegetables and other meats. It is similar to an omelette, but it looks like a pie. The bacon makes this dish tasty, although I would like to add sliced potatoes in it.
1 layer pastry dough
4 slices bacon
1 medium onions, finely chopped
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup half and half
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon white pepper
1/8 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1 cup Gruyere cheese, shredded
Preheat the oven to 375F.
In a skillet, heat the olive oil and fry the bacon until it is crispy. Drain the excess oil with paper towels and crumble the bacon. Set aside.
In a bowl, beat the eggs. Add the half and half, salt, pepper and nutmeg.
Place the pastry in a deep dish baking pan, place the bacon and chopped onions at the bottom of the pastry. Pour the egg mixture into the pastry and top with shredded cheese.
Bake for 45-50 minutes until the eggs set and the cheese is lightly browned. Let it stand.
Slice and serve warm with salad.
