I've been meaning to add this one for some time, and keep neglecting to. Back in the '80s there was some stupid book we all heard about called "Real Men Don't Eat Quiche" -- but that's a total crock! MY real man eats it, and cooks it proudly; i ask him to do so every time we have houseguests.
J's BEST-I'VE-EVER-TASTED QUICHE
1/2 lb. bacon
2 eggs + 2 extra yolks
1 1/2 c. cream
1/2 c. water
1 c. finely grated swiss cheese
1/4 t. white pepper
Butter well a 9" deep pie/torte pan, and strew the grated cheese in the bottom, then the cooked bacon. Beat the eggs, liquids, and seasonings together, and pour carefully over the other ingredients. Bake at 375 F for about a half-hour, till the top is slightly browned and the custard thoroughly set.
