A quiche similar to “Quiche Lorraine” but with the addition of onions.  Although quiche is now a classic dish of French cuisine it actually originated in Germany in the medieval kingdom of Lothringen, which the French later renamed Lorraine. Delicious for breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner.  Enjoy the basic quiche recipes or add vegetables, meats and seafoods to create your favorite meal to suit any occasion.
