Conference Quiche

In a couple of weeks we will be participating in our semiannual General Conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.  We are invited to the Conference Center to listen (if local and have tickets), or we can participate by live broadcast via radio, television, and satellite.  

Often times my family looks forward to listening {watching} in our home, still in pajamas with the traditional pancake breakfast and fixins.  

I'm not a huge pancake fan but love the fixins.  This conference quiche is a must have in my {recipe} book!

Conference Quiche
1 unbaked 9” pastry shell               2 whole eggs
8 strips bacon                                   ½ cup heavy cream
1 chopped onion                               ½ tsp. salt
1 tsp. bacon fat                                 ¼ tsp. nutmeg
Pinch of salt                                      dash of cayenne
2 egg yolks                                         ½ cups grated Swiss cheese

Fry bacon until crisp.  Saving 1 tsp. bacon fat, drain off remainder.  Crumple bacon.  Set aside.  Sauté onion in bacon fat with salt until golden.  Remove.  Drain on paper towels.  Beat egg yolks, whole eggs, cream, salt, nutmeg, and cayenne.  In unbaked pastry shell, layer cheese, bacon and onion.  Pour egg mixture on top.  Bake at 375 deg. For 35 to 40 min (until set).  Cut into narrow wedges.  Serve hot or cold.  Can be made ahead of time and frozen.  Defrost before baking.

Original recipe came from our good friend Abby H.
