Quiche Lorraine

It’s easy, quick and super tasty and everytime I make one all my guests love it. I’ve made many types of quiche already:

Stracchino and ham quiche

quiche 1

Sundried tomatoes and feta quiche

quiche 2

I also made one with mushrooms, ham and mozzarella (which I havent posted yet tho…sorryyyy)

but this is the very first time that I’ve made the famous quich lorraine! I brought mine to my friend’s Easter lunch last weekend. We had a blast and ate so much food. Quich is the perfect food for a picnic or a party as it is served cold and can be conveniently prepared ahead of time.

Enjoy 🙂

Ingredients (make one):

  • 1 pie crust
  • 150 g smoked bacon
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 250 ml heavy cream
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 3/3 cup grated gruyere (or other cheese)

Roll out your pie crust


in a skillet saute’ the bacon on medium-high heat for a couple of minutes, just to brown the meat


In a bowl combine salt, eggs, pepper and parmesan cheese. Beat it up


then pour in the heavy cream. Stir to combine


On the pie crust sprinkle the cheese


then the bacon


and then pour in the egg/cream mixture


Bake at 180 for about 40 min. Remove from the oven and let it sit on the counter until completely cool
