Quiche Lorraine

We have now made this twice and love it. It is easy to put together and tastes great. Great also, since it is low carb AND tastes great! I found the recipe while out searching for low carb recipes.
Quiche Lorraine  
Tina MacDonald

Low carb
Serves six

½ pound of bacon, crisply fried and crumbled
1 cup shredded natural Swiss cheese
1/3 cup minced red onion
4 eggs
2 cups whipping cream
¼ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. equivalent of sweetener
1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper

Heat oven to 425. Sprinkle bacon, cheese and onion in the bottom of a 9-inch pie pan. Beat eggs lightly and beat in remaining ingredients. Pour cream mixture into pie pan. Bake in oven for 15 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 300 degrees and bake 30 minutes or longer or until a knife inserted 1 inch from the edge comes out clean. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting. Serve in wedges.

This makes a soft-textured quiche. If a firmer texture is desired, cook an additional 10 minutes.
