I have to admit I don’t make quiche very often but when I do we really enjoy it. Quiche Lorraine is one of my favorite quiche recipes, easy to prepare and is made with a buttery crust, filled with bacon, cheese and topped with a creamy custard.

Quiche Lorraine is a great dish to serve for breakfast or lunch but it also makes a great appetizer for special occasions. Can be served warm or at room temperature and it keeps refrigerated for several days.
