Quiche is such a versatile dish that can be enjoyed for Sunday brunch, everyday breakfast, lunch or paired with a wonderful French onion soup and salad for a delicious dinner.
Turn Turbochef oven on by turning oven to ‘Bake’ on the cook wheel, select ‘COOKBOOK’ then under cookbook, select ‘Quiche Lorraine’, then select a 9” pie or deep dish pie. Press ‘START’ to begin the preheat cycle.
To prepare the quiche, prepare bacon strips and cook until crisp, dice into about ¼ “ pieces. Reserve some of the bacon drippings (about 1 Tbsp) and slowly caramelize onions in a sauté pan for about 10 minutes. Use about ½ cup more raw onions than you need for the caramelized onions as they will reduce when cooked. Grate the Guyere cheese .Roll out the pie shell into a 10” diameter and form into a 9” deep metal pie tin. If using the deep dish pan, roll two pie shells together into about a 12” diameter and form into a 10” deep dish pie pan. Place bacon, then onions, then cheese into the pie shell. In a mixing bowl, using an electric mixer, whip eggs, cream, and spices and whip until frothy and volume increases. Pour quiche batter over the bacon and cheese. Place pan into the oven carefully as it will be very full. You may want to extend the shelf in the oven, put the pan in the oven and pour the batter into the shell to avoid spilling.
Press ‘START’ again and bake under ‘Quiche Lorraine’ for 12 minutes if baking a 9” quiche or 15 minutes if baking a 10”deep dish quiche. The center of the quiche should puff up and brown on top. The crust should be golden brown. Test the quiche by inserting a knife in the center of the quiche, if it comes out clean, it is done. If you want the quiche more cooked, use the cook more function on the cookwheel.
