French quiche lorraine is a savory dish made up of egg-filled pastry crust, milk or cream, cheese, meat, seafood, or vegetables.
It is possible to serve Quiche warm and cold. It is part of French cuisine but is popular in other countries, as well, particularly as a type of party food.
While it is considered a French dish, egg and cream pastries were enjoyed in England as early as the 14th century and in Italy as early as the 13th century.
About Quiche Lorraine Recipe
The quiche version that you know best — the Lorraine quiche — is obviously French. The famous dish is traditionally served at “special occasion” events, named after the Lorraine region in France.
It is prepared with eggs, cream, and lardons (pork fat). Cheddar cheese and bacon are also used in modern versions.
The traditional Lorraine quiche recipe was made with pâte brisée, a short French crust pastry, and bacon filling with egg and custard. For more international recipes, click here.
