Perfect Quiche Lorraine

We had Molly's bridemaid's luncheon at my house on Friday. My aunt Jeralu gave me an incredible quiche recipe (I have no idea where she got it but it looks like it was a copy from a cookbook). I have NEVER made quiche in my life and was surprised at how easy it was! Of course, it helped that Jeralu had cooked all the bacon for us in advance! Also, my mom and I chopped the swiss cheese on Wednesday so on Friday morning when it came time to make the quiche, it was a breeze! Anyway, here's the recipe:
Perfect Quiche Lorraine (Frances Goza)
1 lb. bacon crumbled
1 1/2 cups Swiss cheese
4 eggs, beaten
1 c. heavy whipping cream
1 c. half and half
1 Tbsp. all purpose flour
3/4 tsp. salt
Dash of pepper
Dash of nutmeg
Place bacon in pastry shell. Sprinkle cheese on top. Combine remaning ingredients, stirring well (I just used a blender). Pour over cheese. Bake at 375 (is there not a degree sign on a keyboard?) for 65 minutes. We did not cook the pie crust first and it was perfect.

I made this again last night where I could take picures and put the recipe on here. I forgot the pie crust, though!!! I made a quick run back to Kroger and got some. The pie crust we used for the shower was Wal-Mart brand (I think) and it was better than the Pillsbury (go figure).


Lots of cheese

The finished product.

Okay, here's the quiche at the shower and it was better than the one I made. I think the reason was because we put a little bit of spinach in it.....just a handful of the frozen kind...we drained it well first with paper towels. Also, Marci threw in a little bit of chopped onion. I also think this would be AMAZING with mushrooms!! YUM!! Anyway, this was seriously the best quiche I've ever had and super easy!!! :) Thanks Jeralu!! :)
Just a quick side note: That shredded cheese looking stuff on top of the banana bread is actually butter. Marci wanted to make the butter pretty so she came up with that idea. :) Everyone thought it was shredded cheese! HA! :)
Okay, this has nothing to do with recipes but I thought the banner we made was so cute!!! I don't take any of the credit, although I helped make sister-in-law, Sabrina, is an amazing artist. She's even illustrated a book. She's so talented. My sister, Hannah, is an artist, too. She got her degree in art. My sister, Marci, is an artist, too. The artist gene completely skipped me. I can, however, cut and paste. :) We actually got the banner idea from Kelly at Marci thought our mantle was boring and I remembered Kelly's banner for Harper so we went to her blog and got ideas. Anyway, I thought it was SO cute!! :)
