Created by John Gulbranson 1981





Pie Crust:

1-1/2 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup vegetable shortening
4-5 tablespoons cold water
8 ounces bacon, diced
8 ounces swiss cheese, shredded or small-chopped slices
3 eggs
1 pint half & half
1 tablespoon flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
dash nutmeg

Pie Crust:

  1. Stir flour and salt together in a medium bowl. Cut in shortening with a pastry tool until pieces are the size of small peas.  Sprinkle water on mixture one tablespoon at a time, mixing with a fork each time, until all is moistened (may not use all 5 tablespoons).
  2. Form dough into a ball.  Roll dough on a lightly floured surface until about 1/4“ thick and slightly larger than the diameter of the quiche cooking dish (10-12”).
  3. Press into the quiche dish.
  4. Pre-bake for 5 minutes only at 325°.
  1. Cook bacon until crisp, drain and crumble – reserve 2 tablespoons.  Place remaining bacon and cheese in pie shell.
  2. Beat eggs in a bowl then add half & half, flour, salt, and nutmeg, whisk until blended.  Pour over bacon and cheese in pie shell.  Trim with reserved bacon.
  3. Bake for 35-45 minutes at 325° until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
  4. Let stand 10 minutes to allow settling before serving

* I'm pretty sure this recipe is the reason Dustin asked me to marry him.
This recipe is easy and makes you look like a 4 star chef. If he knew then
what he knows now, he would have realized that was the only thing I could
really cook!

From The John Gulbranson Family in Niceville FL!
6 eggs
1 pint half & half

1-2 tablespoon chopped onion (dehydrated onion will work in a pinch)
1 small tomato
1/4 pounds cooked ham
3-6 ounces swiss cheese (depending on taste)
salt and pepper, to taste
  1. To prevent excess liquid in the finished product, place tomato slices on a paper towel before chopping, sprinkle lightly with salt, and let stand 30 minutes.
  2. Beat eggs in a bowl then add half & half, parsley, and onion, whisk until blended.
  3. Cut tomato in half and squeeze seeds out, discard seeds.
