Note: Omitting the bacon to make it a vegetarian dish is easy to do and still makes for a delicious meal.
Make pie crust for 9" one-crust pie. (Do not use store-bought pie crust meant for sweet pies, as it will be too sweet for quiche.)
6 slices bacon, crisply fried and crumbled
1 c. shredded cheese (I like to use cheddar)
1/3 c. minced onion
2 c. whipping cream or 1 can of milk or 2 c. milk
3/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. sugar
1/8 tsp. red pepper or cayenne
Prepare pie crust.
Heat oven to 425 degrees. Sprinkle bacon, cheese, and onion into pastry-lined pie pan.
Beat eggs slightly. Beat in remaining ingredients. Pour cream mixture into pan.
Bake 15 minutes.
Reduce oven temperature to 300 degrees and bake 30 minutes longer or until tested. (Done like custard.) Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
