If there is no time to make dinner, you can always make quiche;-)
Quiches are staples in France. We eat lots of quiches. They are easy to make, they cook fairly fast and they make for some yummy dinner or lunches. We like to eat quiches in France because they are very very inexpensive to make and they allow you to use whatever you have in your fridge.
I will tell you that a good quiche needs to have either cream or whole milk, and lots of cheese;-)
Did you know that “although quiche is known as a classic French dish, the quiche originated in Germany. The word quiche means “cake” which came from the German word Kuchen. Today, quiche is considered as typically French.
The most popular quiche is quiche lorraine. Quiche lorraine is a quiche with smoked bacon or lardons. It was only later that cheese was added to the quiche lorraine. The addition of Gruyère cheese makes a quiche au gruyère or a quiche vosgienne. The ‘quiche alsacienne’ is similar to the ‘quiche lorraine’, though onions are added to the recipe.” Wikipedia.
Well today I will present a very easy recipe of quiche lorraine.
We cheated here with the dough as we bought one instead, but making the dough from scratch would add considerable time to this recipe.
Ingredients for 1 pie of about 9 inches:
- 1 pie crust,
- 1 cup of bacon,
- 1/2 cup of grated swiss cheese,
- 1/2 cup of shredded parmesan,
- 1 cup of heavy cream,
- 2 eggs.
- pepper to taste.
- Mix all the ingredients together, and set aside.
- Place the dough inside the large round mold, or inside the tart mold.
- With the fork, puncture the dough to allow the air to come out and your dough will not bubble during baking.
- Empty the filling into the pie crust,
- Cook in an already warm oven at 400 for 25 minutes.
Bon Appetit and Happy Cooking!!!
