Ingredients

Steps to Make It

  1. Prepare crust for quiche. In a mixing bowl, mix together flour and salt. Cut in cold butter with a pastry blender until coarse crumbs form; add water, a little at a time, until dough holds together and forms a ball.

  2. Shape into a disk, wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for about 30 minutes.

  3. On a lightly floured surface with a floured rolling pin, roll out dough into a circle about 12 inches in diameter. Fit dough into a 9-inch pie plate or quiche pan. Trim edges, leaving a little overhang, about 1/4-inch all around the edge. Prick dough with a fork.

  4. Line with foil and fill with dried beans or pie weights. Bake quiche crust for 10 minutes at 375 F.

  5. In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, thyme, and pepper. Pour into the baked crust.

  6. Crumble bacon over the top with the shredded Cheddar cheese.

  7. Bake at 375 F for about 30 minutes, or until quiche filling is set and the top is lightly browned.

Serve the quiche with fresh tomato wedges or a tossed salad.

Quiche serves 8.
