Bacon and Swiss Quiche


1 (9-inch) frozen pie crust, thawed
1 pound sliced bacon
3 eggs, lightly beaten
1 (12 ounce) can evaporated milk
1/2 teaspoon spicy brown mustard
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 cup all-purpose flour, or as needed
1-1/2 cups shredded Swiss cheese


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prick bottom and sides of pie crust and bake 10 minutes, until lightly brown; set aside to cool.

Place bacon in a skillet over medium-high heat and cook until evenly brown. Drain, crumble and set aside.

In a bowl, mix eggs, milk, mustard and nutmeg. In a separate bowl, toss bacon with flour to lightly coat. Spread 3/4 bacon mixture and Swiss cheese over bottom of pie crust. Pour egg mixture over bacon mixture. Top with remaining bacon mixture.

Bake 1 hour until knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes before cutting to serve.

Yields 8 servings
