How to make it

  • Take eggs out of refrigerator and let come to room temperature.
  • In cold skillet, add olive oil and diced bacon and turn heat onto medium.
  • With spoon, stir on occasion to let bacon crisp all over, tis better to allow bacon to cook slowly versus too quick and smoke up the house. Less bacon shrinkage too. (who knew?!?)
  • Remove cooked bacon and put in cut up ham and onions into remaining bacon fat. Cook till onions are translucent and starts to become caramelized.
  • While ham and onions are cooking, crack eggs and place into one bowl. Whisk eggs till smooth, add milk, salt and pepper and 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg. Stir till well combined and set aside.
  • Grate and cut up your cheeses and place into a second bowl. Stir cheese till combined then add flour, stirring till flour coats the cheese.
  • Return to skillet, and with slotted spoon, drain out caramelized onions and cooked ham. Drain on paper towels and add bacon. Let cool for five minutes.
  • Mix bacon mixture into cheese mixture and stir till well combined.
  • Pour this mixture into unbaked pie shell.
  • Place pie shell onto cookie sheet.
  • Pour egg mixture into pie shell over the bacon mixture.
  • Add a couple of shakes of ground nutmeg to top along with freshly minced scallions on top of unbaked quiche.
  • Carefully, place cookie sheet with quiche sitting on top, into the oven and let bake for 45 minutes at 350 degrees.
  • Check if done when taking knife and inserting it, the knife comes out clean.
  • Let quiche sit for 20 minutes before serving allowing it to finish "setting up", serve with fresh mixed salad greens and or warm and toasty soup for a perfect luncheon.
  • PS, I said to heck with the 20 minutes, and sliced me up a piece immediately - thinking about going for naughty seconds.

    Make sure you use at least three types of cheeses though, after I've made this recipe for over 20 years, my mom always insisted on having at least three cheeses- and she's right, it really makes a difference with the end product.
