Quiche Lorraine Recipe or “Cream & Bacon Quiche” (#CookForJulia #SundaySupper)

“Quiche.”

For me, it conjured up fear and trembling in my home kitchen, and a “yes please” when seen on a bistro menu. It’s a treat I engage in occasionally, but had never made at home. I was a-scared, kids, I’ll admit it. But when the #SundaySupper group decided to do a tribute to Julia Child, I raised my hand like an anxious schoolgirl with the right answer. Hey, what could happen? I’m happy to say, I not only surprised myself, but even got a “Mom, this is the BEST breakfast for dinner EVER.”
Oh Julia, thank you so much. {contented sigh}

“This is my invariable advice to people: Learn how to cook- try new recipes, learn from your mistakes, be fearless, and above all have fun!”
― Julia Child, My Life in France

The recipe below is from Mastering the Art of French Cooking, adapted slightly, as I’m incurably lazy in some things. (Yeah, I’m not simmering bacon and then sauteing it after that. I don’t wanna. You can’t make me!) Below the recipe, be sure to check out what the other Sunday Supper participants are making this week in honor of Julia Child. You might just be inspired to make something yourself!

This recipe, like many around here, is easier than you might think.


Quiche Lorraine

So, without further adieu, here’s how you make this delightfully simple, yet delicious, Quiche Lorraine (otherwise known as “Cream & Bacon Quiche.) Consider pairing it with a green salad with Julia’s vinaigrette, and a nice Cotes du Rhone white wine (like we did here.) Yum!
