Quiche Lorraine

January 27, 2011

Quiche is a classic French dish however came from the German word “kuche” which resulted in ‘kische” and finally the french word “quiche.  It began as a custard with egg and cream, bacon was later added and finally cheese.  If you only make one quiche in your life make a “Quiche Lorraine”.  If you can make this quiche you can any other vegetables and have a different quiche every day of the year.  When I make this I generally make two and freeze one for a later date.  Just carefully wrap with foil tightly and freeze on a flat surface.
