Quiche Lorraine a la Versailles Picnic
This quiche is really easy to make and great to bring to a picnic.
Serves: 4
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 35 minutes


1 10-inch pastry shell, baked
4 slices bacon
1 large onion, sliced
1 tablespoon bacon drippings
1 cup ham, boiled or baked, shredded
4 paper-thin slices (4" x 8" each) Swiss cheese
3 eggs
1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
1 cup cream, heated

Broil bacon until crisp. Crumble and sprinkle over bottom of pie shell. Saute onion rings in bacon drippings until soft. Arrange over bacon. Place half the shredded ham and 2 slices of cheese over onions. Repeat layers of ham and cheese. Beat eggs and mustard together; add to warm cream and beat again. Pour into pie shell and let stand 10 minutes. Sprinkle on enough nutmeg to cover top. Bake in a pre-heated oven 350 degrees for 35 minutes. This quiche will keep for about 3 days, and can be warmed successfully if covered with foil. May also be served cold.
