My Quiche Recipe

Several friends have asked for my recipe for making a simple quiche. There are many out there, but that is usually not what people want: they actually want to see "your" recipe ;)

So here it is!

Things you'll need:

* Freshly made, or ready made dough

* 7 to 9 eggs (depending on size)

* Crème fraiche

* Dash of milk (optional)

* Cooking bacon

* Mushrooms (optional)

* Cheese to grate (e.g. cheddar or emmental)

* Pepper (optional)


Preparation steps:

In this instance, I used short crust dough, but you can also use puffy dough!

You can use either the pre-rolled, or the one you need to spread out yourself, or you can also make it from scratch (which I am too lazy to do ;)!

If needed, spread it out to fit your pie dish...

Place the dough in a pie dish that can go in the oven. Remember to "fork" the dough, especially if using a puff dough!

Preparing the dough

Place dough in pie dish


Cut the bacon (not shown) and mushrooms into small pieces

Cut the bacon and the mushrooms, and cook them in a pan.

Drain the water and fat. Save for later use...

Pre-cook the bacon and mushrooms


Mix the eggs, crème fraiche, and some (rather more than less) of the grated cheese in a big bowl.

Once well mixed, pour onto the dough in the pie dish.

Add in the cooked bacon and mushrooms, spread evenly...

Add some more cheese. More is better!


Cook the quiche at ~200ºC, or gas mark 7, for hmmm, well, until it looks good!

(Variable depending on the oven... Usually it takes 45 to 55 minutes for mine.)

Cook on mark 7 / 200ºC


Et voilà!
