Quiche Lorraine

This delicious quiche I got years ago when we were in the military. One of the other wives served this at a brunch and kindly shared the recipe.

1 (9 inch) pie shell, deep dish

12 slices bacon, crisply fried and crumbled

1 cup Swiss cheese, shredded

1/3 cup onion, finely chopped

4 eggs

2 cups half and half

3/4 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Sprinkle bacon, cheese and onion in pie shell.  Beat eggs slightly; beat in remaining ingredients.  Pour into pie shell.  Bake uncovered for 15 minutes.  Reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake until knife inserted halfway between center and edge comes out clean, about 30 minutes longer.  Let stand 10 minutes before cutting.
