From Grandma's Kitchen: Quiche Lorrain/Cheese Custard Pie

I have fond memories of eating this quiche on Christmas morning at my Grandma's house. It is a fluffier quiche. It's filling, healthy, and oh-so-delicious.

Grandma's Quiche:
-1 pie crust (try Tammy's whole wheat pie crust--that's what I used this morning and it was so, so good!)
-3-4 pieces cooked and crumbled bacon
-1/2 cup Swiss cheese
-2 cups milk
-3 eggs
-salt and pepper to taste

Place pie crust in pie plate. Sprinkle with bacon and Swiss cheese. Grandma said she also adds some chopped ham if she has any ham on hand. I used cheddar this morning because I didn't have Swiss on hand. In a saucepan, scald milk (get it as hot as possible without boiling). Let it cool and beat in eggs. Add salt and pepper to taste. Bake at 350* for about 35-40 minutes, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
