Quiche Lorraine Recipe
Quiche is a savory French dish that typically consists of a pastry crust filled with a mixture of eggs, cream, and cheese, as well as a variety of vegetables, meats, or seafood.
The eggs and cream create a custard-like filling, while the cheese adds richness and flavor. The vegetables, meats, or seafood provide a contrast of texture and flavor.
The most well known quiche is quiche lorraine, traditionally made with bacon, eggs, and Gruyère cheese.

A little History of Quiche
For the crust
For the filling
To make the crust,
combine the flour and salt in a food processor.
Add the butter and pulse until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Gradually add the ice water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until the dough comes together. Remove the dough from the food processor and form into a ball.
Flatten the dough into a disk and wrap it in plastic wrap.
Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 190°C (375°F).
Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface and press it into a 9-inch (23cm) quiche dish. Prick the bottom of the crust with a fork.
In a skillet over medium heat, cook the bacon until crispy. Drain on a paper towel.
In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, cream, milk, salt and pepper.
Sprinkle the bacon, broccoli florets (if using) and cheese over the crust. Pour the egg mixture over the bacon and cheese.
Bake the quiche for 35-40 minutes, or until the filling is set and the crust is golden brown.
Let the quiche cool for a few minutes before slicing and serving.
Enjoy, Good Appetite!
