Fiesta Friday #21: Quiche

Hi guys!

I missed last Fiesta Friday due to my wonderful trip but now I’m back!
Thanks to Angie at The Novice Gardener for this amazing party!
I am bringing some quiche for you today πŸ™‚
I love it. I make it quite a lot πŸ™‚
They come in all sorts of combinations.
I’ll share a basic recipe which you can use as a base.
I never listen to the amounts my cookbooks are telling me to use because if I want, for instance, more bacon, I’ll add more πŸ˜‰

What do we need (1 quiche for 4 people):
– 1 roll of puff paste
– 1 onion (a big one)
– butter to bake
– 4 eggs
– 2dl cream
– pepper and salt

If I make Quiche Lorraine, I ‘should’ use 100g bacon and 100g ham. I think I use almost 200g of each of them. I use 200g cheese (gruyΓ¨re or emmental)
You can add any vegetables or fish or meat you like πŸ™‚ I often improvise with what’s left in the fridge πŸ™‚
My mom also likes to make this. She puts carrots, onion, chicory, mushrooms, …
I’ll show you the recipe for Quiche Lorraine, that will make it easier πŸ™‚ But feel free to adapt πŸ™‚

How to:
Pre-heat the oven at 190 degrees centigrade.
Put the puff paste in a baking tin and stick a fork in it to make little holes.
If you are not using baking paper, butter the form before you put the puff paste in πŸ™‚
Cut the onion. Fruit it with a little bit of butter.
When the onion is beginning to become soft, add the bacon and the ham or any other meat you like to add.
Let it cool a bit.
Mix the eggs with the cream. Add a little flavour with salt and pepper.
Add the onion and the meat to the mixture with eggs.
Fill the puff paste with it. Add the cheese by sprinkling it on top.
Make sure the cheese is equally spread.
Bake the quiche for about 25 minutes until the crust gets a nice, gold-yellow colour.
Eat while it’s still hot πŸ™‚

I will list a few of my quiche varieties.
The first one is a quiche with salmon and leek
Next is a quiche with carrots and onion. The other half is chicory. It’s a split one πŸ™‚
Quiche wortel
Quiche with broccoli
Last but not least: quiche with tomatoes and herbs (this one is my mom’s invention)
Three quiches πŸ™‚

Happy Fiesta Friday to you all!
Have a delicious day and party ❀

  1. Beautiful quiche, Sarah! Looks scrumptious. I love adding lots of veggies to my quiches, too. Salmon and leek are a great combo for a quiche – can’t wait to try it!


  2. I love quiche…it’s so versatile! Your photos are amazing, these look delicious. Glad you were able to return for FF this week and share this! πŸ™‚


  3. I will take one slice of each and also an extra of the first one with chicory! I love love quiche, it’s so homey, buttery and delicious. You have to check out Thomas Keller’s mushroom quiche recipe — it’s like 4 stories hight and I have vowed to make it before I die . . . . πŸ™‚


  4. Ah….hahaha!! Sarah…you made me chuckle, because you are my kind of girl!! I would totally use double the cheese, and bacon and ham too!! Your quiche sounds amazing…and the photos are just to die for. You’ve found a weakness that I have for eggs, and cheese… and quiche!! Awesome post. Thanks so much for sharing! ❀


  5. Hi Sarah! Wow, so you know how hungry the FF gang is once they make it to the party! You brought us 4 quiches? You are awesome! I will take a slice of each please. (I’m working so hard here co-hosting, I will work it off πŸ˜‰ ). I also love that you are showing us just how versatile this wonderful dish is! I can’t wait to tuck in! πŸ˜€


  6. I loveeeee quiche, and I can’t decide which of the four ingredient combinations you made that I want the most! I do like how you split one though- great idea! Thanks for the recipe πŸ™‚


  7. Can I make it without the puff pastry? It looks divine but I’m gluten-free (as my name might give away πŸ˜‰ )


  8. I love quiche! We always have an argument at home as apparently quiche is not man food but I think there is always time for a good quiche, especially if it looks as nice as yours! πŸ™‚ I agree with you I usually put a bit of everything in there, perfect for fridge left overs! πŸ™‚
