    1. Preheat oven to 230 C. Line pastry shell with foil and some beans or rice as a loading. Bake in preheated oven for 8 minutes. Remove foil and bake for an additional 5 minutes or until crust is set and dry. Remove from oven and turn down temperature to 170 C.
    2. In a large frying pan, cook bacon until crisp. Drain and reserve 2 tablespoons of drippings. Crumble the bacon and set aside. Cook onion in pan in the bacon fat until onion is tender. Remove and set aside.
    3. In a large bowl, mix together milk, salt and eggs. Stir in bacon and onion. In a separate bowl, toss cheese and flour together, then add to egg mixture. Be sure to mix well. Pour egg mixture into pie crust.
    4. Bake in preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until knife inserted in centre of the quiche comes out clean. If necessary, cover edge of crust with foil while baking to prevent burning or overbrowning. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.

    This quiche was very easy to make and tasted great. I used cheddar cheese because I don't like swiss cheese and I added a small amount of black pepper to the mixture before cooking.  -  03 Oct 2000  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I absolutely LOVED this recipe. It was so easy to make, and delicious. Even my meat-and-potatoes father raved over this dish. It tastes even better warmed up for left overs the next day. Only down side is that it takes much longer to cook than the recipe indicates. Other than that - divine. Will always use this recipe from now on. Note: Cooking time is more like an hour! Have tried this recipe twice now. love it, but it definitely needs much longer in the oven.  -  11 Aug 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I added an extra egg and fresh mushrooms. I also used only 1 1/3 cups of milk and it came out perfect for us. My wife and I liked this a lot and both had seconds. If you like quich, you'll certainly like this. The left overs are were just as good the next day! I give this one five stars!  -  20 Jan 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
