Pastry

1
cup all-purpose flour
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/3
cup plus 1 tablespoon shortening
2
to 3 tablespoons cold water

Quiche

8
slices bacon, crisply cooked, crumbled
1
cup shredded Swiss cheese (4 oz)
1/3
cup finely chopped onion
4
eggs
2
cups whipping (heavy) cream or half-and-half
1/4
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon pepper
1/8
teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)
Additional crisply cooked crumbled bacon, if desired

Directions

  • 1 In medium bowl, mix flour and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Cut in shortening, using pastry blender (or pulling 2 table knives through ingredients in opposite directions), until particles are size of small peas. Sprinkle with cold water, 1 tablespoon at a time, tossing with fork until all flour is moistened and pastry almost leaves side of bowl (1 to 2 teaspoons more water can be added if necessary).
  • 2 Gather pastry into a ball. Shape into flattened round on lightly floured surface. Wrap flattened round of pastry in plastic wrap and refrigerate about 45 minutes or until dough is firm and cold, yet pliable. This allows the shortening to become slightly firm, which helps make the baked pastry more flaky. If refrigerated longer, let pastry soften slightly before rolling.
  • 3 Heat oven to 425°F. Roll pastry on lightly floured surface, using floured rolling pin, into circle 2 inches larger than upside-down 9-inch quiche dish or glass pie plate. Fold pastry into fourths; place in quiche dish or pie plate. Unfold and ease into dish, pressing firmly against bottom and side.
  • 4 Sprinkle bacon, cheese and onion in pastry-lined quiche dish. In large bowl, beat eggs slightly with fork or wire whisk. Beat in remaining ingredients. Pour into quiche dish.
  • 5 Bake 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 300°F. Bake about 30 minutes longer or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Sprinkle with additional bacon. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Seafood Quiche: Substitute 1 cup chopped cooked crabmeat (pat dry), shrimp, seafood sticks (imitation crabmeat) or salmon for the bacon, use green onions and increase salt to 1/2 teaspoon.

Divine, divine and divine--this will be the best quiche you've ever tasted! The filling is like liquid satin--it's just so rich and creamy, not at all "eggy tasting," like many recipes can be. To save time, go ahead and use a purchased refrigerated pie crust instead of making it from scratch.
