The northeastern French province of Lorraine gave us this traditional and really easy-to-make savory tart. I love to make Quiche Lorraine as it is always so simple and very delicious. Add your favorite salad mix on the side and you’ve got the perfect entrée for brunch, lunch or even dinner.
The classic filling doesn’t include cheese, mustard or onion confit; so I really hope my Lorraine native best friend Maud will not read this article or I’ll eventually get virulent complaints for years! But hey, I love my quiche this way, and besides, who doesn’t love a rich and cheesy quiche?!
Take your regular tart to the next level with this delightful and effortless French Quiche Lorraine recipe.
