Ingredients

  • 1 sheet refrigerated pie crust
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onions
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1-1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened apple juice
  • 1 pound sliced bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups shredded Swiss cheese

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Line a 9-in. pie plate with crust; trim and flute edges. Set aside. In a small skillet, saute green onions in butter until tender.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk eggs, cream and juice. Stir in bacon, salt, pepper and green onions. Pour into crust; sprinkle with cheese.
  3. Bake until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, 40-45 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting.
    Freeze option: Securely wrap individual portions of cooled quiche in parchment and foil; freeze. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Preheat oven to 350°. Unwrap quiche; reheat in oven until heated through and a thermometer inserted in center reads 165°.
