Quiche Lorraine Recipe

Favorite Restaurant Breakfast Recipe

Of the many kinds of Quiche the restaurant serves, this restaurant breakfast recipe is still a favorite of the restaurant customers, including "real men."

For a (short) period of time, the males had the ladies order their quiche. They "manned up" after a while. ;-)

Did you know? Quiche is considered a classic French dish, however custards in pastry were known in English cuisine at least as early as the 14th century.

The original ‘quiche Lorraine’ was an open pie with a filling consisting of an egg and cream custard with bacon. It was only later that cheese was added to the quiche Lorraine.
