Quiche Lorraine Recipe

The quiche lorraine recipe is one of those brunch menu ideas that everyone loves. It's traditionally a French dish, but it doesn't require the effort that so many think of when they think of French food.

This simple recipe is everyone's favorite brunch recipe. It makes a great addition to your New Years, Christmas, Easter, or birthday brunch. But, any Sunday suddenly becomes a celebration when Quiche lorraine is served!

For the pastry, use this pate brisee (pie crust) recipe. It's a very simple recipe and will make your quiche a stand-out success.


  • Pastry for a nine-inch pie
  • 5 strips of bacon
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 cups of Gruyere or Swiss Cheese (cubed)
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese (grated)
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups of heavy cream (a combination of 1/2 milk 1/2 cream may be used)
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Line a 9-inch pastry dish (or pie plate) with the pastry crust and bake for 5 minutes.

Cook the bacon in a skillet until it's crisp. Remove and crumble. Drain all but one tablespoon of bacon fat from the skillet. Cook the onion in the fat until it's transluscent.

Sprinkle the bacon, onion, and cheese over the piecrust.

Whisk together the eggs, cream, nutmeg, salt and pepper and gently pour over the cheese, onions, and bacon.

Bake for 15 minutes. Then reduce the temperature to 350 degrees, and bake until a knife inserted one inch from the pastry shell comes out clean.

You can place aluminum foil over the edges of the pastry shell to keep the edges from becoming too brown if you desire.
