Ingredients

  • ½ 14.1-ounce package store-bought pie crusts.
  • 8 strips bacon
  • ½ cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • ¾ cup shredded Gruyere cheese good quality
  • ¼ grated Parmesan cheese good quality
  • 5 large eggs beaten
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup half-and-half
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt

Instructions

  • For ease in rolling out, remove pie crust from refrigerator 20 minutes before using.
  • Fit one pastry crust into a 9-inch pie plate, cover and rest in the refrigerator until oven has preheated.
  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Pre-bake store-bought pie crust according to package directions (approximately 10 minutes); set aside to cool.
  • While crust bakes, prepare the bacon by cutting the strips into ¼” slices. Place the bacon in a cold skillet set over medium-low heat and cook until crisp; drain on a paper towel-lined plate.
  • Set oven temperature to 375°F.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the Swiss, Gruyere and Parmesan cheeses and bacon. Toss to mix.
  • In a different medium bowl, whisk together eggs and add the cream, half-and-half, nutmeg, black pepper and kosher salt.
  • To assemble the quiche: Sprinkle the cooled crust with half the cheese/bacon mixture, pour half the egg/cream mixture on top, sprinkle with the remaining half of the cheese/bacon mixture and finish with the remaining half of the egg/cream mixture.
  • Bake at 375°F for 30-45 minutes or until set in the middle. Cover the crust edge after 30 minutes to prevent burning.
  • Serve with a side salad and buttered warm baguette. Enjoy!
