My father lived in France for 2 years doing missionary work in his early 20’s. Needless to say, he fell in love with french cuisine. Who wouldn’t right! He returned home with a french cook book full of delicious and authentic recipes. One of which was Quiche Lorraine. Growing up Quiche was a dish reserved for Christmas morning. I’ve kept up the Quiche tradition in my own family, but I love this yummy egg dish so much that I bake it about 6 times a year. I mean how can I pass up any opportunity to include bacon into a meal!
Quiche Lorraine is a light custard with lots of bacon in a buttery crust. The addition of cooked bacon to a quiche is a touch sometimes credited to the cooks of Lorraine, in eastern France, hence its name. I love this meal for Sunday brunch. Pair it with a fresh green salad or fruit plate and you’ve got yourself a meal!
