Mushroom and Bacon Quiche

This recipe comes from, and is my favourite of any quiches I've tried. Yum!

1 c. shredded Cheddar cheese (I used medium)
1 c. sliced mushrooms
1 c. cooked bacon, cut in 1” pieces
1/4 c. grated Parmesan cheese (fresh! Don’t bother with the canned stuff!)
1/4 c. minced onion
1 c. shredded Swiss cheese
1 frozen deep dish pie shell, thawed
5 eggs
1 c. half & half (I used Blend - what is half & half anyway?)
1/2 tsp. pepper

Prepare pie shell: Bake thawed shell at 400° until golden in color (5 minutes). Remove from oven. Cool 3 minutes. Brush with beaten egg white, coating shell and edges. Bake a few seconds longer to seal egg white. Cool before filling.

Filling: Place layers of Cheddar cheese, mushrooms, bacon, Parmesan cheese, onion, and Swiss cheese in pie shell. Beat eggs until frothy and add half & half. Season with pepper. Pour custard mixture evenly over layers in pie shell. Bake at 350° for 1 hour or until set. Let stand 15 minutes before cutting.
