Cheese-Bacon Quiche

Quiche, France’s answer to Italy’s Pizza

Cheese-Bacon Quiche

Cheese-Bacon Quiche

They are both called pies, and are served in or on  a crust.  The quiche is a flaky pastry shell filled with an egg custard of  cheese, meats and/or vegetables..  The pizza is a yeast dough crust for savory toppings, hot and spicy also of cheese, meats and/or vegetables.  Introducing the Cheese-Bacon Quiche also referred to as a Quiche Lorraine.

Cheese-Bacon Quiche

Cheese-Bacon Quiche

Quiche Lorriaine was first a custard base of few pieces of meat and poured into a hollowed out bread shell  Now the delicious Cheese-Bacon Quiche is poured into a pastry shell.  Some quiches have the meats, cheeses or vegetables on the bottom of the pastry shell with the egg custard poured on top. Quiches make a very good breakfast, brunch and small tart-like quiches make tasty appetizers or hors d/oeuvres.

Savory pastry shells can be made by adding  egg yolks or Parmesan cheese.  The pastry for this particular quiche was made with coconut oil.  Coconut oil does not have a flavor of coconut and the pastry is very flaky making it somewhat hard to handle getting into the pie plate.  The flakiness of the pie dough adds texture to the custard filling.

Menus and serving Recommendations

Cheese-Bacon Quiche

Cheese-Bacon Quiche

Cheese-Bacon Quiches served at a brunch could be made in to small pie like tarts, accompanied with bowls of fresh melon and mango and the Sour Cream Bundt Coffee Cake.   Lunchtime Cheese-Bacon Quiches would be enjoyed with a nice spring lettuce salad with oranges and pecans or tomatoes and green onions and walnuts.  Think quiche for that extra appetizer for your next dinner.

Asparagus Tart

Asparagus Tart

A brunch idea:  An Asparagus Tart

A brunch idea: An Asparagus Tart

Each spring we look for daffodils, tulips, green grass and dandelions.   Then we look for the bunches of asparagus in the produce departments of the grocery.  Asparagus is now available all year round, but it is in the spring the stalks and tips are tenderest.  Also let’s face it, a better price per bunch.

Asparagus can be used many ways, it is good mixed in a melange of roasted vegetables seasons with olive oil,  rosemary, spice Blend, crushed red pepper, oregano flakes and sea salt.

Asparagus Tart

Spring time asparagus surrounded with a custard filling, great for breakfast, brunch, lunch or late time supper. Excellant to be served warm or room temperature.
