Nueskes Bacon & Cheese Quiche Recipe

We prepared several of these Easter morning just to tied everyone over before our late afternoon dinner. Delicious!

All-purpose flour, for rolling

  • 1 homemade or store-bought single-crust pie dough
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 2 cups medium sliced vidalia onion (from 1 large onion)
  • Coarse salt and ground black pepper
  • 6 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 3/4 pound "Nueskes Apple Wood Smoked" bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 cup shredded Gruyere cheese (4 ounces)

STEP 1
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly flour a rolling pin and work surface and roll out dough to a 12-inch round. Place in a 9-inch pie plate, fold overhang under, and crimp edge. Place a sheet of parchment paper over dough and fill with pie weights or dried beans. Bake until edge is dry and light golden, about 20 minutes. Remove parchment and weights.


STEP 2
Meanwhile, in a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add onions and toss to coat with butter. Cover and slowly cook onions, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes or until a golden Color is reached. Turn heat up to medium high and begin to brown the onions, stirring constantly about 10 more minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

 

In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs and cream. Add onion, bacon, and cheese and season with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Whisk to combine, pour into crust, and bake until center of quiche is just set, 40 to 45 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.

 

Enjoy, and please let us know how yours turns out!
