On the plane ride to and from Vegas I read My Life in France by Julia Child. We saw the movie Julie and Julia and I was very interested in learning more about Julia Child's life. The book was great. It was different from the movie and had many more details. I was inspired to finally try some of the recipes in Mastering the Art of French Cooking. I chose the quiche as my first test. The quiche was rich and velvety and extremely flavorful. I added bacon and swiss - a combination of Quiche Lorraine and Quiche au Fromage de Gruyere. I wanted to eat the whole thing by myself.

Press bacon and cheese into bottom of pie crust. Beat the eggs, cream or cream and milk, and seasonings in a mixing bowl until blended. Check seasonings. Pour into pie crust. Bake at 375 for 45 minutes to an hour, or until quiche has puffed and browned.
