Old Country Quiche
|Single crust pie pastry||1|
|Unsalted butter/Margarine||1 Teaspoon|
|Yellow onion||1 Small, chopped to make 1/2 cup|
|Shredded swiss cheese||8 Ounce (2 cups)|
|Lean bacon slices||6 , cooked and crumbled|
|All purpose flour||2 Tablespoon|
|1% low fat milk||1 Cup (16 tbs)|
|Salt||1⁄4 Teaspoon (adjust quantity as per taste)|
|Ground nutmeg||1⁄8 Teaspoon|
1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a 9-inch quiche dish with the pastry, flute the edges, fill with dried beans, and bake for 15 minutes or until light brown. Discard the beans and cool on a rack.
2. Mean-while, in a 6-inch nonstick skillet, melt the butter over moderately high heat. Add the onion and saute for 5 minutes or until soft, then transfer to a medium-size bowl. Toss with the cheese, bacon, and flour. Spread in the pie crust.
3. In the same bowl, whisk the eggs with the milk, salt, and nutmeg. Pour over the pie mixture and bake, uncovered, for 35 minutes or until the center is set. Serve with a Chopped Tomato Salad.
