I found this while searching for a French recipe this month's Food Around the World.  My son was not home for dinner, so perfect....he does not like eggs.  I made this for dinner last night. My daughter and son-in-law came over for dinner, too.  I served the quiche with French bread, of course, and fresh fruit.

The quiche was delicious.  I want it again now!  I found the recipe on About.com.

Quiche Lorraine 

1 layer pastry dough
4 slices cooked bacon, crumbled (I used like 7)
4 eggs
1 cup half and half
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp white pepper
1/8 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
1 cup Gruyere cheese, shredded (I used Swiss)

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Fit the pastry into a deep-dish pie pan. Sprinkle the bacon onto the bottom of the pastry.

Beat together the eggs, half and half, salt, pepper and nutmeg.  Pour eggs over the bacon and sprinkle with the shredded cheese.

Bake the quiche for 45-50 minutes until the eggs are set in the middle. Cool slightly and serve.
