This Easy Classic Quiche Lorraine Recipe is perfect for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
A store bought pre-made crust will work just fine for this recipe, but making your own homemade buttery crust will be even better! And if you are a bit nervous about that, I can assure you it’s a lot easier than you may think.
This classic savory pie got it’s name from the Lorraine region in Northeastern France. However, I’m quite sure the French developed the original recipe from the German “Kuchen”.
It really doesn’t matter to me who developed this delicious masterpiece, I’m just happy they did…whoever it was. It has stood the test of time, and continues to be a culinary favorite.
What I love the most about this Easy Classic Quiche Lorraine recipe, other than the fact that it’s incredibly delicious, is the versatility as a main course. I mean it makes the most delicious breakfast served all by itself. Add some fruit, a cup of coffee or tea and it sure beats a bowl of cold cereal!
Individual quiches made up in miniature tart pans turn a simple brunch into a classy affair. Use a tiered serving platter for a lovely and appetizing visual effect.
For lunch, it’s easy to dress up a hearty piece of quiche with a simple side salad. Toss some greens with crisp veggies in a tangy dressing and lunch is served. If you are a Southerner like me, then throw in a glass of iced tea.
For a well rounded meal, make the quiche ahead of time, serve it alongside some colorful vegetables and dinner will be ready in minutes. And it’s so much better than drive through fast food.
This basic quiche recipe is also easy to adapt. Add in other vegetables such as mushrooms or leeks and create your own delicious version.
Whatever the occasion…this classic recipe is sure to please.
