Ingredients

  • 1 unbaked pastry shell (9 inches)
  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onions
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1-1/4 cups half-and-half cream
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
  • 4 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled

Directions

  1. Line unpricked pastry shell with a double thickness of heavy-duty foil. Bake at 450° for 8 minutes. Remove foil; bake 5 minutes longer. Remove from the oven; reduce heat to 375°.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small skillet, saute mushrooms and onions in butter until tender. In a large bowl, beat the eggs, cream and pepper. Using a slotted spoon, transfer mushrooms and onions to egg mixture. Stir in cheese and bacon.
  3. Pour into crust. Cover edges loosely with foil. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let stand for 5 minutes before cutting.
    Freeze option: Cover and freeze unbaked quiche. To use, remove from freezer 30 minutes before baking (do not thaw). Preheat oven to 375°. Place quiche on a baking sheet; cover edge loosely with foil. Bake as directed, increasing time as necessary for a knife inserted in the center to come out clean.
