Ingredients

    • 4 -5 bulbs of garlic - approximately 40-60 cloves
    • 1 purchased, frozen crust for 10" pie, thawed per package directions
    • 1 cup of heavy cream
    • 4 slices of thick-sliced bacon, diced
    • 3 eggs
    • 1/2 pound Swiss cheese, shredded
    • Salt, pepper, rosemary

Instructions

Preheat oven to 425°F. Unfold crust. Using wet fingertips, press together any tears. Press crust into 10-inch deep dish pie plate. Press foil over crust to hold shape. Bake 5 minutes. Remove from oven; remove foil. Reduce temperature to 400°F.

Fry bacon until crips, drain and set aside to cool.

Layer the crust with diced Swiss cheese then scatter peeled garlic cloves evenly over cheese. Cut any very large cloves in half to insure even cooking.  Crumble bacon atop garlic.

In a medium bowl bean the eggs lightly then add cream and mix to blend.  Add salt and pepper and blend in. 

Bake quiche until knife inserted into center comes out clean, about 45 minutes. Let quiche stand 5 minutes. Cut quiche into wedges and serve.
