Post Content

We prepared Quiche Lorraine (sans pastry) during Jaycelle’s tea party birthday celebration and 4 out of 5 approved of the taste.

We lifted the recipe from Betty Crocker.



  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon shortening
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons cold water


  • 8 slices bacon, crisply cooked, crumbled (1/2 cup)
  • 1 cup shredded Swiss or Cheddar cheese (4 oz)
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped caramelized onion
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 cups whipping cream or half-and-half
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)


  1. Preheat oven to 325° F.
  2. In a bowl, beat eggs slightly along all filling ingredients. Pour into baking dish.
  3. Bake 45 to 50 minutes. Test by poking a knife in center and must come out smoothly.
  4. Take it out of the oven and stare at it for 10 minutes before devouring.

He was eyeing the jar of Nutella from days before when we bought it for our planned Nutella Pancakes on anniversary morning.

He woke up ahead of his mom and asked for that same jar.

The Nutella Monster was born!
