Ingredients
  • For the crust:
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup vegetable shortening, chilled
  • 3 tablespoons iced water
  • Flour, for dusting
  • Egg Mixture:
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup half-and-half
  • 1 pinch black pepper
  • 1 pinch dry mustard
  • 1 pinch paprika
  • For the Filling:
  • 6 slices bacon, cooked and chopped coarsely
  • 1/3 cup diced yellow onion, sauteed until translucent
  • 3 ounces Gruyere, grated
  • 3 ounces Swiss Emmental, grated
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

  • Make the crust: In a large bowl, combine the flour and the salt. Cut in the shortening. Add water to bring the dough together. Roll the dough out on a floured surface and place into a 9-inch pie plate.

  • Make the egg mixture: In another bowl, whisk together the eggs, half-and-half, pepper, dry mustard and paprika. Set aside.

  • Assemble: Sprinkle the bacon, then onion, and then the cheeses on top of the crust, saving 1 chopped slice of bacon for the top garnish. Pour the egg mixture slowly into the shell to the rim. Sprinkle the reserved bacon on top of the quiche.

  • Cover with foil and bake for 35 minutes. Then remove the foil and finish baking for 10 minutes. Cool on wire rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.
