Quiche Lorraine

The quiche originated from Lorraine (it comes from the German name Kuchen, meaning cake). It has become a classic of French cuisine, and is also widely enjoyed in other countries. In this recipe, I have used an equal quantity of cream and milk. This gives to the custard a light but still creamy consistency.

Bake for 30 minutes or until the filling is set and golden brown.

If eating hot, leave the quiche to set for 5 minutes before serving. Otherwise, Quiche lends itself well to being served cold. To do this, simply allow to cool before refrigerating.
