A Savory Sunday

Tania Wilis at the Get it Scrapped website wants to know what your family does for dinner on Sundays?! For us it is always something different! Sometimes we go out, as Sunday is the only day of the week both my husband and I work. And who wants to cook after an exhausting day of work...really?! Sometimes my mom cooks for us...and we always feel privileged on these days, as we both appreciate the gesture of a home cooked meal. And other times we put it off until the other offers to cook or our bellies can go no longer and we resort to fixing a sandwich or eating leftovers. Tonight it just so happens to be that my mother is treating us to one of my favorite recipes Quiche Lorraine. Give it a try...I hope you love it as much as I do!


1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch single crust pie
6 slices bacon
1 onion, sliced
3 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 cups milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups shredded Swiss cheese
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C). Line pastry shell with foil. Bake in oven for 8 minutes. Remove foil and bake for an additional 5 minutes, or until crust is set and dry. Remove from oven and turn down temperature to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
In a large skillet, cook bacon until crisp. Drain and reserve 2 tablespoons of drippings. Crumble the bacon and set aside. Cook onion in skillet with reserved drippings; cook until onion is tender and then drain.
In a large bowl, mix together milk, salt and eggs. Stir in bacon and onion. In a separate bowl, toss cheese and flour together, then add to egg mixture. Be sure to mix well. Pour egg mixture into pie crust.
Bake in preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until knife inserted in center of quiche comes out clean. If necessary, cover edge of crust with foil while baking to prevent burning or over browning. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
