Quiche Lorraine


Yesterday afternoon while I was in a meeting gas prices rose $.24 to $3.09 a gallon. I was shocked. I knew it was coming but the reality felt like a gut punch. I drive a couple hundred miles a week. It cuts into our budget. So, even less dinners out now.

Quiche Lorraine is one of my most favorite dishes any time of day. For brunch, breakfast, or dinner I love the flavors and how simple it is to make and reheat. I learned that this Quiche (or egg pie as my family calls it) is from the Lorraine area of France. It has pork (usually larder but I used bacon) and onions. This was so good. It has been ages since I made a Quiche. Want to make it a bit faster use a store-bought crust rather than making your own but as always a homemade crust will probably taste better.

Verdict:

I could eat this every day, all day as my one and only food. I love it that much except it is so rich I would constantly be sick. We made four Quiche. One large one and then three little ones for the kids, without onions. I prefer the added depth of flavor from the onions but if you don’t like them you can leave them out.

Serve this with a spinach or green side salad and you have a complete meal.
