Quiche lorraine

Quiche lorraine, original recipe

Quiche Lorraine. You have probably already heard about this French tart: a treasure trove of crumbly shortcrust pastry with a soft, creamy filling, made of eggs, cream, Bacon and Gruyère. When I tasted in Paris now many (too many) years ago, I fell in love instantly: This pie has everything I like. Starting from eggs, that I love, to continue with the melted cheese, the crispy bacon and not last l & #8217; dough, that is friable, buttery and unique taste. To help you achieve a perfect quiche lorraine I leave you the VIDEO RECIPE step by step of the whole procedure, While you will also find the VIDEO RECIPE of pasta BRISÉE, so you have no margin for error.

The wonderful thing about this quiche is the consistency of the filling: to be perfect the stuffing should be soft, creamy, wet. L & #8217; egg must not dry out and coagulate too, otherwise you'll make an omelet, and not a quiche. The creamy consistency is reached by l & #8217; adding cream (in France we use a cream with a higher fat content), While the bacon makes a crunchy note and especially tasty and the cheese sweetness and softness. In its extreme simplicity this rustic pie originated in the French countryside is always able to give a thrill the palate: try and tell me. And if you like QUICHES have a look at all my recipes, you will surely find a tasty idea for you. Have a good day!
