When you think of great brunch meals, quiche is often on the menu because it does take some time to cook so you eat later in the day. One of the first documented versions of this great meal is quiche Lorraine which originated in the mid 20th century in France. The most basic version is made with eggs, cream bacon or ham in an open pastry shell. The addition of cheese might not be authentic, but we love cheese with our quiche.

Quiche Lorraine recipe suggestions

This recipe doesn’t have the bacon or ham in the egg mixture, but layers it at the bottom. This will keep the crust from getting soggy and make each bite perfect. However, you can get creative with your ingredients by adding quiche classics like spinach and top it with feta cheese. There are two baking stages but it’s done in less than an hour as you can cook the bacon and other ingredients as the pie crust bakes. Enjoy with a cup of tea or mimosa.
