Recipe Ingredients for Mile High Quiche

1 pie crusts
1/2 pound sliced bacon
3 cups Swiss Cheese,
6 whole eggs
1 egg yolk (save white to brush on crust)
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 dash of cayenne pepper
3 cups light cream
2 green onions, chopped (optional)

Recipe Directions for Mile High Quiche

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Fit the pie crust into the springform pan. Brush the pie crust with the egg white. Fry the bacon until crisp; drain and crumble. Sprinkle the bacon and then the green onions over the bottom of the crust. Sprinkle the grated cheese over the bacon and onions. In a large bowl add the whole eggs, egg yolk, salt, nutmeg, pepper, cayenne, and beat mixture until well combined, but not frothy. Slowly, pour the mixture over the bacon and cheese in the pie shell. Bake 50-55 minutes, or until top is a golden brown and puffy and the center seems firm when it is gently pressed with fingertips. Remove to a wire rack and let cool 15 minutes. With a sharp knife, loosen edge of pastry from the side of the pan, and gently remove side of springform pan. Leave the bottom of pan in place and put on a serving plate to serve. Serve warm.
