Quiche Lorraine

Remember back in January when I told the story about my grandma hobnobing with Paris Hilton? I had mentioned how we had celebrated WD's birthday at a restaurant there in Altus, AR (where A Simple Life was filmed) and WD just went on and on and on about their onion soup. While he was raving about the soup, I was raving about what I had ordered. The Quiche Lorraine. Bacon. Cheese. Onions. You can't get better than that. Oh, wait, you can! When you make it into a pie!

Ready to bake pie crust
8 slices bacon, crisply cooked and crumbled
1 cup shredded Swiss cheese ( I used sliced)
1/3 cup finely chopped onion
4 large eggs
2 cups whipping cream or half-and-half
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/8 tsp ground red pepper ( I didn't use any)

Bake pie crust in pie plate according to package directions.
When done, set temp to 325 degrees F. Sprinkle bacon, cheese and onion onto pie crust.
In a bowl, beat eggs slightly; beat in remaining ingredients. Pour into pie plate.
Bake 45-50 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.
