Bacon, Cheese and Cream – Oh Yum!

Janine Brandau shares her recipe for Quiche Lorraine.

Quiche Lorraine is a simple little recipe with great big flavor. Hamilton Mill resident Janie Brandau shares her recipe for a creamy, cheesy, and bacon-filled dinner you will love.

“I love quiche anyways and this one is so creamy,” Brandau said. “Bacon, cheese and cream -- you can't go wrong!”

This is a quick fix dinner that can be made in no time. Brandau shared a tip that she uses to make this recipe even easier.

“You can use frozen pastry,” Brandau suggests, “that's what I used, or you can make your own.”

Quiche Lorraine 


1 recipe for 9-inch single pie crust

½ cup crumbled bacon bits

1 cup shredded Swiss cheese

1/3 cup sautéed sweet onion

4 eggs, beaten

1 cup whipping cream

1 cup milk

¾ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon white sugar

Dash of ground black pepper


1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

2. Sprinkle bacon, cheese and onion into pastry shell.

3. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, cream, salt, sugar and pepper.

4. Pour egg mixture into pastry shell.

5. Bake 15 minutes in the preheated oven. (Cover pie crust edges with foil if browning too quickly).

6. Reduce heat to 300 degrees, and bake an additional 30 to 40 minutes or until a knife inserted one inch from edge comes out clean.

7. Allow quiche to sit 10 minutes before cutting into wedges.

It really does sound good. So far, all of the cook of the week recipes that I have tried have been fabulous. That banana bread one in particular is really delicious!

This one is really yummy. If you have mini pie pans, you can make the recipe into an appetizer. It will be perfect for the holidays!
