Post THE Quiche Lorraine

Hi Everybody !

Who's ever heard about "Quiche Lorraine" ?

If not, don't worry everyone, i'm gonna give you the authentic recipe
If yes, you won't resist to this "must do" recipe

1st of all, to break the myth of quiche lorraine, THERE IS NO CHEESE (believe me i'm 100% lorraine)

How to make the dough ?
- 300 g of flour
- 150 g of butter (soft)
- 1/2 tbs of salt
- 8 cl of water

(Don't hesitate to convert on this website : Cup to Gram Conversions )

Mix the flour and the salt / add the soft butter / mix / finally, add the water /
Spread your dough on a pie plate (add more water if the dough breaks or flour if it's too sticky)

What to put in my Quiche ?
- 200 g of lardons (small pieces of bacon)
- 4 eggs
- 3 big spoons of crème fraîche (sour cream)
- salt & pepper

* Fry up the bacon

* Break 2 eggs in a bowl / Mix them with the sour cream / Add salt & pepper / Break the 2 other eggs and separate the yolks from the whites into different bowls / Add the yolks in your previous mix / Beat the 2 whites until they became snowy / Add them delicately to your previous mix / Mix it all delicately with a wooden spatula

* After poking your dough with a fork, add the bacon, and finally your eggs /cream mix

How long should I bake my quiche ?
- Put it in the oven at 350° for 45-50 minutes

It must be golden and ready to serve with greens and a french wine

Bon appétit

Looks great. I have not had quiche since it was popular in the 70's and 80's.

I make quiche often and find it's a nice do ahead sort of meal. I agree that a traditional quiche Lorraine has no cheese although I often see it with some gruyere added. The Larousse recipe calls for 4 eggs, bacon and 1 1/4 cups of DOUBLE Cream and a pinch of nutmeg, Salt and pepper (and no cheese). I long ago altered this to reduce the fat a bit but the nutmeg is essential imo. Making this with Creme fraiche is an interesting idea :)

My favorite quiches generally have some cheese in them. The last one I made included some mushrooms, arugala and shallots sizzled up before adding to the mix.

Yes with gruyère it's even better =)

I forgot the nutmeg, its'true, the flavor is kind of special and tasty, but you shouldn't put too much

Whats nice with the snowy eggs, it's that it makes the quiche more "airy" like a soufflé.

What is double cream ? I guess it's "crème fraiche" in french

My last quiche was with mushrooms and blue cheese and mozzarella cheese, i did it in Montreal, my friends from Québec simply loved it

Mushrooms and blue cheese = YUM!

Double cream is just a higher fat cream - sort of like Heavy cream. Double cream about 48% butterfat.


In the US we typically have:

Half and half (10.5–18% fat)
Light cream (18–30% fat)
Light whipping cream (30–36% fat)
Heavy cream (36% fat or more)

I think Crème fraîche is about 28% milk fat and slightly fermented. I sometimes "make" crème fraîche as the real stuff is quite expensive here.

1 cup whipping cream, room temperature
1 - 2 tablespoons buttermilk or 1/2 cup natural sour cream, room temperature

Shake it up and set on the counter for 24 hours. Then refrigerate.

Interesting thoughts on Quiche Lorraine origins. Creme fraiche is readily available in our stores now, well, here at least. It didn't use to be so. I do have to suggest that whoever decided to add cheese to quiche dishes had a brilliant idea. I will probably be drummed out of DC for saying so, but I don't care too much for bacon quiche ( who can deny a chance to turn down bacon in Anything) .I think my favorite quiche has asparagus, mushrooms and a little onion.

I always make a quiche after Thanksgiving with leftover turkey, roasted red pepper and grated Havarti cheese

It's almost impossible to understand these dishes apart from the ingredients -- fresh cream or crème fraiche with no additives (stabilizers), eggs not more than a day old, real French type 55 (or 45) flour, poitrine, etc.

Readers may, or may not, find this interesting or something they can identify with:
