My cute little microwave bacon cooker!

Fry the bacon or cook in the microwave until crispy.  Chop into bite-size pieces, set aside to cool.

Roll out the pie crust and press it into a large deep dish pie pan.  Crimp the edges with your fingers or fork.

Whisk the eggs, cream, salt and pepper in a large bowl, mix in the onions, bacon, and cheese.  Pour the mixture into the pie crust.  Place the pan on a rimmed baking sheet, cover lightly with aluminum foil and bake for about 40 to 45 minutes.  Remove the foil and continue baking for 10 to 15 min. or until the quiche is set and the crust is golden brown.  Remove from the oven and allow to sit for 10 minutes before slicing.
