Thinking about throwing a quick brunch during the holidays? Baking a delicious, savory Quiche Lorraine is always a good idea! A perennial holiday favorite around the globe, especially on a cold, snowy day, quiche is not only delicious, it looks fancy and is super-easy to make. From our kitchen to yours, here’s a traditional family recipe from Lillian Vernon.
1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch single crust pie
6 slices bacon cooked crispy
1 onion, minced
4 eggs, whisked
1 1/2 cups milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups shredded Swiss cheese
bunch of baby arugula
yellow cherry tomatoes
olive oil & lemon to dress the salad
Directions: Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Bake frozen pie crust in oven for about eight minutes, do not let edges brown.
Cook bacon until crisps. Crumble and set aside. Sautee onion in skillet until tender.
In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, and salt. Add bacon and onion. Toss cheese and flour together in a separate bowl, and then add to eggs and mix well. Pour egg mixture into pie crust.
Bake in preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until knife inserted in center of quiche comes out clean. Let stand for 10 minutes. Before serving top with baby arugula, and cherry tomatoes drizzled in lemon and olive oil.
