Quiche Lorraine

Adventurous recipe
Quiche Lorraine

This Quiche Lorraine is my spin on the classic. I use all of the original ingredients then add sautéed shallots because I want to. I love shallots!

What you will love about this recipe is that you do not have to blind (pre-bake) the crust. Simply make the dough, roll it out, put it into the pie pane then chill in the fridge while you prepare the filling then put it all together and bake. Easy as pie!

In this recipe for Quiche Lorraine, it calls for Emmanthaler or Gruyere cheese. I really like both of those cheeses but you could easily substitute a milder Swiss cheese, sharp cheddar or feta – all will be spectacular. I used a thick cut Black Forest bacon which is very smoky in flavor.

Lastly, this recipe calls for 1-1/2 cups whole milk and only 1/2 cups heavy cream, which keeps the custard lighter.

If I have quiche in the morning, that is all I have with my coffee of course. At lunch or dinner, I like to serve it with a simple salad such as this Italian Tricolore.
