Classic Quiche Lorraine Recipe

Recipe Ingredients

1 quiche pastry
8 slice bacon
8 oz gruyére cheese


1 cup whipping cream
4 egg yolks
1 pinch salt
1 pinch cayenne
1 pinch nutmeg
1 cup table cream*
1 whole egg
2 egg yolks
1 pinch salt
1 pinch cayenne
1 pinch nutmeg

Recipe Preparation

Fry bacon until very crisp. Drain on paper towels. Slice cheese. Fill
prepared quiche shell with overlapping slices of cheese and bacon.
Pour on custard. Bake in preheated 375 F oven 35 to 45 minutes, or
until custard is puffed and tests completely done and pastry is
nicely browned. Allow to rest five minutes before serving.

Note: Sometimes in France, blanched salt pork cut into julienne
strips is substituted for the smokier tasting bacon.

Custard: blend ingredients together and use as directed in quiche

*If table cream is not available, use 1/2 cup whipping cream and 1/2
cup half & half.

Variation: Fill shell with tiny cubes of ham and Gruyére cheese.
Variation: Substitute slices of well aged Cheddar or domestic Munster
for Gruyére.



Servings: 6

Food Tips of the Week

Diet tips

At the start of a diet, people most certainly look at food store and big brand food items labelled 'low in fat'. To do this is far too often a miscalculation, in that an item could be significantly reduced in fats, but nevertheless elavated in calories and carbs.
The problems associated with reduced carbohydrate diets
Its all the rage, but it is really safe for you?
Eating more animal-based products may lead into high consumption of saturated fat and cholesterol, which most authorities believe will increase the risk of heart disease.
Remember, one fact that is often overlooked, it is very hard (although not technically impossible) for vegetarians to adopt a reduced carbohydrate diet.
Foods containing allyl sulfides
( includes garlic, leeks and welsh onion)

The onion and garlic range of vegetables is rich in allyl sulphides, a chemical which experts believe could be linked to a reduced risk of stomach and colon cancer.
Even though there is little definitive proof obtainable, allyl sulfides are also thought by many researchers to reduce symptoms with blood circulation, sterilization and diabetes.

Foods containing allyl sulfides are also good for weight loss, so should be included in your diet system.
