I love to create new quiches, new flavours, new colours. For this post I will share the classic recipe Quiche Lorraine, taken from here:

1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch single crust pie
12 slices bacon
110 g shredded Swiss cheese
55 g minced onion
4 eggs, beaten
480 g light cream
5 g salt
1 g white sugar
0.2 g cayenne pepper

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
Place bacon in a large skillet, and fry over medium-high heat until crisp. Drain on paper towels, then chop coarsely. Sprinkle bacon, cheese and onion into pastry shell.

In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, cream, salt, sugar and cayenne pepper. Pour mixture into pastry shell.

Bake 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Reduce heat to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C), and bake an additional 30 minutes, or until a knife inserted 1 inch from edge comes out clean. Allow quiche to sit 10 minutes before cutting into wedges.

Picture from here



Quiches are an amazing meal at any time, winter or summer, breakfast, lunch or dinner! Served with a nice salad of fresh greens they become a veritable feast :)

Oh Yum!! That sound delicious! David doesn't like quiche dishes, but I sure do!! :)

I agree with Desiree - you can eat Quiches cold in the summer with a nice salad, or hot in the Winter - I was trying to think what else you could have had for the letter Q, but I can't think of anything. Apart from Quidditch of course, from Harry Potter. LOL!

"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
