Quiche Lorraine Recipe Video (scroll down for printable recipe)
The famous quiche Lorraine, basically bacon and eggs in a pie. What could be better? Traditional quiche Lorraine doesn’t include cheese, but if you just can’t get enough of the milky stuff, you can add 4 ounces of diced Gruyere or Comte cheese in the bottom of the pan with the bacon. I think that most quiche Lorraine you’ll find in the US does include it.
Most quiche in the US is also made in a pie pan. A large tart pan is best, though most people don’t have those I’d wager, which is why pie pan quiches have become standard. If you can get your hands on a 9 or 10-inch round tart pan with a removable bottom, do it. It allows you to remove the quiche from the pan in one piece and doing so will keep the crust from getting soggy. A springform (cheesecake) pan will also work, though the edges of the crust won’t look quite as pretty.
