9-inch pie crust*
6 slices of bacon, cooked and chopped
approx. 3/4 - 1 cup of cream or milk
nutmeg, salt & pepper to taste
1. Set the oven at 375 degrees.
2. Crumble the bacon into the pastry shell.
3. In a bowl, beat the eggs, salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Pour the mixture into a 2-cup measure. Add enough of the cream to come up to the 1 1/2-cup level. Pour the mixture into the pastry.
4. Bake the quiche for 30 to 35 minutes or until the mixture rises and browns. A skewer inserted into the center of the quiche should be clean when withdrawn. If necessary, continue baking for 3 or 4 minutes.
*I have had success not pre-baking the pie crust for quiche if the crust is still frozen when it goes in. Hopefully it worked this time too. :)
