Quiche Lorainne

First time baking a quiche…and to my surprised it turned out delish! I baked this Quiche Lorainne for Piggy Cuz... for I know she loves quiche :) While it was baking in the oven, the wonderful smell of bacon and cheese filled the air and ‘ Chaco ’ ( my 4 legged son :p ) was eyeing the oven all the time :)) Hoping it will pop out of the oven into his bowl…wishful thinking on his part!

It was quite easy to make and the recipe was juz nice for my 9” tart pan with detachable bottom. I will definitely make this again when the Piggies are home…this is just a try out.

It was a good bake, full of cheese and bacon , less butter and less eggs…no sugar, no salt…a healthy one and I know of one person who will love this and who will not mind paying RM 7 for a small slice of tuna quiche…she is none other than my Piggy gal :)

the quiche was evenly browned and
the aroma was saliva-inducing :p

there are two types of cheese in this quiche :p
mozzarella and cheddar cheese !


yum yum yummy :))

  4. I adore quiche Lorraine and this one looks absolutely delicious. Well done on your first quiche!

  5. Beautiful!! I salute you for making the crust from scratch. I take the easy way out and but frozen ones :P May I suggest using creme fraiche next time (Carrefour's in-house brand). Of all the creams I have every tried for quiches, theirs gives the lightest and silkiest texture. Just sharing :)
