The (best) Quiche Ever from One September Day
6 Whole Eggs
1 Cup Heavy Cream
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon Nutmeg
1 dash Cayenne Pepper
2 Cups Grated Swiss Cheese
1/4 Chopped Onions ( we use a lot less)
( We usually add bacon, ham or sausage. Along with mushrooms or spinach or crab meat)
Mix all of the liquid ingredients together with the seasonings together in a bowl. Do NOT over mix. Whisk gently.
Using this pastry crust recipe, ( or a refrigerated crust for last minute prep.) line your fluted deep fluted pie plate with crust.
Place your grated cheese, onions, meats and veggies into the bottom of your crust. Sprinkle it around to be sure it is evenly distributed in your pastry crust.
Pour the egg mixture over the filling ingredients.
We add a bit more cheese on the top.
Bake at 350 degrees F. for 45 minutes or until it starts to get nice and brown ad firm in the middle.
After taking it out of the oven, allow it to sit for at least 10 minutes.
