Nestled in a buttery, rustic crust, this quiche is filled with sweet onions, bacon bits, and cheese. It’s truly the best quiche Lorraine recipe.
- Dough for a single-crust deep-dish pie
- 1 package (12 ounces) thick-sliced bacon strips, coarsely chopped
- 3 large sweet onions, chopped
- 1 tablespoon minced fresh thyme
- 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
- 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1-1/2 cups shredded Gruyere cheese
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 8 large eggs, room temperature
- 2 cups whole milk
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to a 14-inch circle.
- Transfer to a 9-in. springform pan; press firmly against the bottom and sides. Refrigerate while preparing to fill.
- In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp, stirring occasionally.
- Remove with a slotted spoon; drain on paper towels. Discard drippings, reserving 1 tablespoon in the pan.
- Add onions to drippings; cook and stir over medium heat until caramelized, 20-25 minutes.
- Stir in thyme, pepper, and nutmeg; remove from the heat. Cool slightly.
- Stir in cheeses and reserved bacon; spoon into crust.
- Preheat the oven to 350°.
- In a large bowl, whisk eggs, milk, and cream until blended; pour over top.
- Place the springform pan on a rimmed baking sheet.
- Bake on a lower oven rack until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean, 75-85 minutes.
- Cool on a wire rack for 15 minutes. Loosen side from pan with a knife. Remove rim from pan.
