French Cooking Made Simple: Quiche Recipe


Welcome to French Cooking Made Simple! Today, we'll be making a delicious quiche that's easy to prepare and bursting with flavor. Let's get started!


First, preheat your oven to 375°F. While it's heating up, let's make the crust. Mix 1 1/2 cups of flour, 1/2 tsp of salt, and 1/2 cup of cold butter until it forms a crumbly texture.


Add 3-4 tbsp of ice water and mix until the dough comes together. Roll it out and place it in a greased pie dish. Prick the bottom with a fork and bake for 10 minutes.


Now, let's make the filling. In a pan, cook 6 slices of bacon until crispy. Remove and chop into small pieces. In the same pan, sauté 1 chopped onion and 1 minced garlic clove until soft.


In a bowl, whisk together 4 eggs, 1 cup of heavy cream, 1/2 tsp of salt, and 1/4 tsp of black pepper. Add in the bacon, onion, and garlic. Pour the mixture into the pre-baked crust.


Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until the filling is set. Let it cool for 10 minutes before slicing and serving. Bon appétit!


For a twist, try adding different ingredients to your quiche. Spinach and feta, ham and cheese, or even roasted vegetables are all delicious options.


Don't have time to make a crust? No problem! Use a pre-made pie crust or even a puff pastry sheet for a quick and easy alternative.


Leftovers? Quiche makes a great breakfast or lunch option the next day. Just reheat in the oven or microwave for a tasty meal on the go.
