quiche lorraine

Jules —  May 6, 2007

I love this yummy quiche recipe. Aunt Marilyn asked for the recipe so I thought I’d share it here.


Pastry for 9-inch one crust pie (I use the Pillsbury pie crusts in the refrigerated section)
12 slices bacon, crisply cooked and crumbled
1 cup shredded natural Swiss cheese (4 ounces)
1/3 cup finely chopped onion
4 eggs
2 cups whipping cream
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper


Heat oven to 425 degrees. Prepare pastry. Sprinkle bacon, cheese and onion in pastry-lined pie plate. Beat eggs slightly; beat in remaining ingredients. Pour into pie plate. Bake uncovered 15 minutes.

Reduce oven temperature to 300 degrees. Bake until knife inserted in center comes out clean, about 30 minutes longer. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting.

Do-ahead Tip:

After sprinkling pastry with bacon, cheese and onion, cover and refrigerate. Beat remaining ingredients; cover and refrigerate. Store no longer than 24 hours. Stir egg mixture before pouring into pie plate. Continue as directed except–increase second bake time to about 45 minutes.

  1. Lordy! With a pound of bacon, a cup of cheese (we all know we really ‘eyeball’ the cheese in this kind of recipe, which means it ends up being MORE than just that one cup), and two cups of cream….I bet it does taste good! Hmmmm, my thighs are saying “No….DON’T”….but my mouth is saying “We need to try this one”!

  2. Thank you so much, I just commented on Tootsies blog about it, I can’t wait to fix it. Loved visiting with your family an seeing your beautiful home. We had a fun day.

  3. This was magnificent, when I saw it baking in the oven, I knew it was going to be good.
    You know Julie we did not expect this. Your a busy mom, but OOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHHHhhhhhh are we glad you did.
    A wonderful start, a lovely home, a fun day.
    Oh yes your slaw turned out delicious for supper. I love that slaw and had not had it for a long time. I pigged out on i8t with the ribs.

    Thanks a million for the recipe. Julie my stepdaughter is coming this Friday, I may try it on Sat morning.

    Love ya sweetie, I’m so glad I got to see your new home.

  4. I was so pleased to have both of you at my home. I am glad you liked the quiche. I wish I’d had it done sooner so it wasn’t so hot out of the oven.

  5. I love the nickname Kandis gave me, Saleminator!

  6. Saleminator! Too funny!!!

  7. Yep!
    Jules is the Saleminator!
    She sees everything before I can even get into the area…..I think she scans the area before ever getting out of automobile miles away….

  8. I can relate, Special K. I’ve been to garage sales with Trish and Aunt Kathryn–they’re the same way. They can scan and be moving on to the next sale and I’m still digging through a box of books.

    Well, Deb I can probably keep up with you then. Right, Marlis, we can shop with her.

  10. Thanks Punkie. I may not be fast, but if there is anything left when I get there, I grab and hang on. You got to give me credit, I try awful hard.

  11. Jules, Marlis & I have the ingredients for the quiche, now we just got to get it together and in the oven. It’s me Punkie

  12. Jules:
    Can you email me the slaw recipe?????
    Or post it too!

  13. I have the slaw recipe somewhere. Jim & Is gave it to me a long time ago.

  14. I hope you enjoy your quiche! It’s such a yummy dish!

    Kandis I’ll post it here soon. It’s such a pretty day. James is mowing and the girls are outside playing. I think we are going to take a walk and try to get landscaping ideas from the neighbors. James and I aren’t very good at landscaping. I didn’t get the family gene.

    It’s already getting hot. I hope they put the pool in this year. I’ve heard a lot of talk but no digging yet.

  15. Jules I made the Quiche this morning and it was a hit. Julie ate two pieces as did Kandi and I. I love it, love it.

  16. I have made the slaw recipe before but have since lost it……I think Isabelle gave it to me…

  17. I need to try to make this for our church dinners. I will let you know how it turns out.
