Quiche Lorraine

For pie crust instructions, please see the Pâte brisée recipe.


6 slices of fried bacon
about 1/4 lb of swiss cheese
4 eggs slightly beaten
1 cup of heavy cream
1 cup of milk
1/2 Tbsp of corn starch
1/4 tsp of nutmeg, salt and pepper

  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Mix corn starch with the milk, starting with just a few drop to avoid lumps.
  • Put the cream and eggs in a bowl and mix well. Add the milk, nutmeg, salt and pepper.
  • Spread the bacon and the cheese in the pre-baked pie crust. Gently add the egg and milk mixture over it.
  • Cook in the oven for 45 minutes or until brown on top (a knife inserted in the middle of the quiche should come out clean).
