Duchess Quiche

4-6 strips bacon
1/2 to 3/4 cup chopped onion
2 cups (12 oz) diced or shredded Swiss cheese
3/4 cup diced ham (about 4.5 oz) - get a 1/4"thick slice of ham at deli and use about half of it, freeze remainder for a later quiche
1 9-inch deep dish pie shell
6 eggs
1-1/4 cups milk
1-1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon white pepper (can use black)
pinch of nutmeg, can leave out
1/3 cup grated parm

Saute bacon until crisp. Remove and drain. Break up after it’s cool. Saute onion in bacon fat until tender. Remove from pan with slotted spoon and drain on paper towel. Scatter bacon, cheese, ham, onion over pie shell evenly.

Beat eggs, add milk and spices. Pour into pie shell to mostly cover fillings. Sprinkle parm on top. Bake at 350 for about 45 minutes until knife blade inserted in center of pie comes out clean. Serve with assorted fruits or salad.

Can be made as a frittata (no crust), adjust amounts of ingredients depending on size of pan.

Can add spinach. Saute fresh spinach in a dry pan, add some salt and pepper, cool, squeeze out ALL excess liquid then scatter over ingredients. Can also add cubed steamed/fried potatoes when making as a fritatta.

I just wanted to note that the recipe is from the mid to late 1980s and came from King Stefan's Banquet Hall in Cinderella's castle in Walt Disney World. It was on the brunch/lunch menu.
