Quiche Lorraine

This Quiche Lorraine has become an ultimate breakfast/brunch epitome of perfection in our family. Saturday breakfasts have become a special and happy tradition for us. Every other day of the week, we keep is super simple – oatmeal, scrambled eggs, smoothies, etc. During the week, mornings are usually a rush with everyone trying to get where they are supposed to be – school, work, or some sort of appointment, so we are flying through the house, trying to get out the door in time. Sundays we go to church, so that doesn’t leave a lot of time to linger at the table either. Now that I stay home with our two little ones, they want to be fed as quickly as possible and I don’t want to spend too much time cleaning up after breakfast either, so I keep it simple and quick when it’s just the 3 of us.

However, both Sergi and I LOVE breakfast food. This is why Saturday mornings have become a time for us to wake up slowly and we make it a breakfast to make up for all the other days of the week. It is a feast, with both savory and sweet treats, and we love every minute of it.

We both really love this Quiche. If you appreciate breakfast as much as we do, you will love it too. A tender, buttery crust holds bacon, onions and cheese encased in the most delicate egg custard. The custard is so rich and creamy but doesn’t feel heavy or greasy at all. You can use other fillings too, instead of bacon and onions, such as sausage, ham, mushrooms, spinach, peppers, tomatoes, etc.

Not only is this Quiche Lorraine so good you will be talking about it the rest of the day, you can do so much of it in advance and not have much to do on Saturday, but still enjoy a complete feast.

Here’s how you can break it down: make the crust in advance. You can keep it in your freezer for up to 6 months, or in your refrigerator for a day or two. You can also cook the bacon and onions a day or 2 in advance. Putting it all together is so easy. However, you can also make the whole quiche, bake it and then just reheat it the next day OR freeze it and reheat it before serving. This is so convenient. Sometimes I think it tastes even BETTER when it’s reheated. Keep this in mind next time you are having overnight guests, are hosting a brunch party or just want a really easy breakfast.   Continue reading…
