About the Recipe

Share

This classic Bacon Quiche contains cream, milk, eggs and… bacon. It is a French dish that is also known as Quiche Lorraine in French.

It includes bacon that is usually blanched in the simmering water to remove its smoky, salty taste. But this step is optional.

Serve this quiche with fresh salad or herbs to contrast the rich taste of the quiche, and enjoy a homemade quiche like never before!

What Is a Quiche?

quiche is a French tart or pie that is straight sided and open faced.

Quiches are usually a mixture of cheese and milk, tomatoes and onions, shrimp, crabs or anything else combined with eggs, poured into a pastry shell and baked in an oven until they puff and brown.

But we are focusing on cream and bacon this time. 😉

I Love Smoky Bacon… What Do I Do?

If you enjoy the taste of smoky bacon, just skip the simmering step. This change alone will alter the taste of this cream and bacon quiche drastically, and will keep your smoky bacon taste buds happy.
