big pinch of salt
cayenne and freshly ground black pepper to taste
6 ounces shredded Gruyere cheese, divided (or other Swiss cheese)
For the custard:
3 large eggs, plus 2 additional egg yolks
1 cup cream
3/4 cup milk
1 tsp chopped fresh thyme leaves
 
Steps:
– Line inside crust with foil, fill halfway up with dried beans, rice, or baking weights
– ”Blind bake” the crust for 5 minutes at 425 degrees F.
– Remove foil/weights and bake another 5 minutes
– Reduce oven to 325 degrees F.
– Bake filled quiche for 40-45 minutes, or until set
