Patchwork Cheese and Bacon Quiche
10 slices bacon, fried crisp and crumbled
1 partially baked tart pastry (recipe to follow)
2 cups light cream
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
pinch of cayenne pepper
1 1/4 cups grated Swiss Cheese
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Sprinkle the crumbled bacon over the bottom of the tart shell.
Combine the eggs, cream, salt, nutmeg and cayenne pepper in a bowl and beat to mix thoroughly. Sprinkle the cheese over the bacon and ladle the custard over all. Bake for 15 minutes at 425, then lower the heat to 350 degrees and bake for 30 minutes more, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Serve in wedges, hot or cold.
