Mother’s Day is Sunday May 9 this year.
something really nice today for the lady who does so much for you throughout
the year. This brunch will show her how much you care. A few fresh flowers on
the table are a nice touch.
Preheat oven to 375° F (190°C).
Place pie shell on cookie sheet. Use a fork to poke several sets of holes in the bottom and around the sides of the shell. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside.
Melt butter in a heavy skillet. Add bacon, and ham if you’re including it, and onion when foam subsides. Cook until meat is lightly browned. Remove from skillet with a slotted spoon to paper towels.
Beat or whisk eggs, yolks, cream, and seasonings in a large bowl. Stir in cheese.
Scatter meat, into pie shell. Gently ladle in egg mixture. Sprinkle the top with butter bits.
Bake for 25 minutes or until a sharp knife inserted in the middle of the quiche comes out clean.
The dish may be served hot, warm, or room temperature. It also makes a wonderful appetizer. Leftovers reheat in the microwave beautifully.
*Diced ham, ¼ lb. (125g), is also good in this recipe in place of the bacon or along with. All other ingredients and process remains the same.
**No need to buy white pepper if you don’t have it. Use black pepper only a little more as it is not as strong as white pepper.
