Quick facts about quiche:
Quiche though associated with France actually originated in Germany. Quiche means cake and comes from the German word “kuchen” or kitchen.
There are many different kinds of quiche but the classic is of course quiche Lorraine named after the Lorraine region in France. The traditional ingredients in a quiche Lorraine are eggs, cream, cheese and bacon or ham.
From Urban Dictionary: Quiche- Used to describe someone who is hotter than hot. Oh My!
OK ladies-focus now, try to focus on the rest of this post!
We have a few traditions at my house and some of the more memorable ones happen around the holidays. Every Christmas morning since 1995; the year my oldest daughter Emma was born, I have made homemade cinnamon rolls and quiche Lorraine for breakfast for my family.
Quiches are so versatile and easy to prepare especially if you use a store bought crust like I do. Hey! I have too many things to do on Christmas eve without the added stress of a homemade crust!
If anyone reading this has an easy pie crust recipe, please include it in a comment below or send me a link and I would love to try it this year.
This is the quiche Lorraine recipe that I use.
I have also served it for brunches and baby showers to much success and I recommend that you use the full cream especially when making it for guests. I have tried substituting regular milk and 1/2 & 1/2 and it is just not the same. Bon Appetit!
And finally, here is my own Quiche-my husband, Marcus Cranston who is in the middle of an incredible project right now.
Mark was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease 4 years ago and is running 4 miles in 44 countries in 4 weeks and 4 days to raise awareness for Parkinson’s disease and raise funds for Parkinson’s research.
You can follow his adventures on www.444Parkinsonstraveler.org. He is also on Facebook:444Parkinson’s Traveler.
I am so proud of Mark and his amazing journey and we are so overwhelmed by the support and generosity he has received along the way. Life can be so full of unexpected moments of joy and kindness.
