Quiche Lorraine

My turn to cook last night. Decided to make quiche Lorraine. Here’s my basic recipe

  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1.5 cups milk
  • Half onion, chopped
  • Half green pepper, chopped
  • 4 oz. mushrooms, chopped (I generally use fresh mushrooms. I guess canned would do.)
  • 6-8 slices of bacon, cooked. Sometimes I use chopped ham. We had some ham in the frig last night, but I couldn’t find it. So, bacon it is.
  • 4-6 oz shredded cheese, usually Swiss, I use whatever is in the refrigerator.
  • Pie shell. (Usually, I use a Pillsbury ready made pie crust. If you insist, make your own pie crust. I’m lazy.)

Pre-heat the oven to 450F

Sauté the vegetables in about 2 Tbsp oil until they are tender. Add them to the pie shell in your pie tin.

Add the cheese on top of the vegetables.

Mix the milk with the beaten eggs and pour on to the vegetables and cheese.

Put the pie tin on top of a cookie sheet (unless you like cleaning ovens). Bake in 450 degree oven for 40 minutes. Check that it’s done by putting either tooth pick or fork into the center.

Let it set for 5-10 minutes, then serve.
