♥EZ as Pie! Clean out the Fridge Quiche Lorraine♥

This recipe is so adaptable! You can change the type of cheese you use, according to what you have on hand. Leave out the bacon, or use ham or Canadian bacon. You can use a combination of cream and 1% milk for the half and half. Add sautéed vegetables. Use shrimp, or chicken, or cooked sausage. It's quick. It's fun to make. It helps you clean out the fridge!

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups half and half
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 1/8 tsp. salt
  • dash pepper
  • 2 cups shredded cheese (Swiss, Cheddar, Colby, Havarti, your choice!)
  • 2 Tbsp. flour
  • 8 slices bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
  • 1 9" unbaked pastry shell (I ♥ to have a box of frozen crusts in my freezer)

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine half and half, eggs and seasonings. Toss cheese with the flour and sprinkle into the unbaked pastry shell. Top with bacon or other meats or vegetables, then carefully pour egg mixture into the pie shell. Bake at 350 degrees 40-50 minutes, until egg mixture is set and top is a golden brown.
