Quiche Lorraine - great for tea time!
A quiche is essentially a rich baked custard, encased in crisp savoury pastry.
So what is Quiche Lorraine? A quiche is a delicious egg pie with a nice buttery crust. What is interesting with the Quiche Lorraine is that you can largely adapt its basis to your own taste, culture and habits. So people have added all different kind of things in the original quiche and the word quiche is often used among the French food words to refer to any salty tarts. Another great thing about quiches is that you can have them for breakfast, lunch, dinner or late night. But quiches are traditionally eaten in the French culture mainly as French appetizers or starters being part of a lunch or dinner.
Enjoying my tea time & reading my favourite local magazine on a lazy Sunday.
