Like most people, I’ve eaten a lot of quiches in my life! It’s so hard to beat the combination of a delicious crispy, pastry crust, with the smooth creaminess of the egg filling, and of course, the oh-so-delicious little bites of bacon. Yep, a quiche lorraine is always a winner in our house.
Over the years, I’ve experimented with lots of different quiche recipes. Sometimes I love to mix it up and add in some yummy roasted vegetables, and other times I like to go a bit gourmet with feta and sundried tomatoes. But my absolute favourite type of quiche is just a beautiful, classic quiche lorraine.
If you’re watching your calorie intake, you can always substitute the cream for light milk. But oh my gosh, you really can’t beat the delicious richness of a quiche made with real cream! If you don’t have any bacon, then you can use chopped ham instead (which is also a great way to use up any leftover Christmas ham!).
If you have time, then you can of course make your own pastry… but you know what!? The shortcrust pastry you can buy at the supermarket will save you a lot of time – and nobody will know the difference!
So let’s get into the recipe…
