9 “ quiche pan – if you have a smaller pan then you may have to adjust the baking time by adding 5 minutes at a time.
Pie crust- premade is fine.
Preheat oven 180*/350*
3 slices bacon- chopped
when bacon is half cooked add
1 shallot- chopped
Sauté together until cooked. Drain on paper towels and set aside.

1 cup -5 year old Aged Gouda Cheese- finely grated
In a small bowl beat eggs and cream together. Add salt, pepper and a pinch of Nutmeg. Add bacon and shallot mixture into eggs and mix well.
Press pie crust evenly into your quiche pan and up the sides. If you don’t have a quiche pan a cake pan is fine. Prick a few holes into the bottom of crust with a fork.
Sprinkle half your cheese onto bottom of crust.
