Bacon-Green Onion Quiche

09 Jun

As I mentioned in a previous post, I had a plethora of green onions to use up. This quiche also helped me do that. I also got all improvisey and added a can of corn. I didn’t have as much cheese on hand as it called for, and therefore it came out a little dry, but it still was pretty tasty, with the bacon, onion, corn, and eggs combining flavors nicely.

Ingredients

  • 9 inch pie shells
  • 1 cup sliced green onion
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese or 1 cup swiss cheese
  • 6 slices bacon, crisp cooked and chopped up
  • [I added a can of corn]
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup light cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1 dash ground nutmeg

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Bake the pie shell for 12 minutes or until just golden.
  3. Let it cool for 8 minutes.
  4. Reduce oven temperature to 325 degrees.
  5. Cook onions in oil till tender.
  6. Sprinkle cheese in bottom of pie shell. Top with bacon and onion.
  7. Combine the remaining ingredients.
  8. Pour over cheese in pie shell.
  9. Bake at 325 degrees for 40 minutes or until set.
  10. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
