QUICHE LORRAINE

I have to admit, I'm not a huge fan of quiche lorraine but my husband loves it, and so with this in mind, I decided to try yet another recipe. This time the recipe came from the Hairy Bikers and the recipe can be found on the BBC Food Website.

We loved this quiche, it was bursting with flavour and would be perfect for feeding a crowd. It's fairly rich and so you could get away with serving small portions.

The photograph shows I have overcooked the quiche (the filling went past the 'wobble' stage), this was in part due to the recipe not being specific about the tin size - it says one large tin! I used a 23cm tin and it really only needs a 20cm tin to give a deep quiche.

A green salad to serve with the quiche, as they suggest, would be perfect. For us though it was quiche, green salad and coleslaw.


The coleslaw is a Jamie Oliver recipe and I know I will make this time and time again. Much much better than those small tubs from the supermarket. Jamie's recipe makes a huge bowlful.

I haven't met a quiche I haven't liked! Thankfully both my husband and son feel the same way. Unfortunately, while I love coleslaw they don't :(

I love how your quiche looks!

I like a good quiche, and this one looks great. The best thing about quiche is that I usually have leftovers for my lunch box the next day!

I'm not usually a huge quiche fan either, but this looks good. Last night, I had some great mini quiches at a wine evening made with a puff pastry base, which I must try soon.

That looks so good. And I've printed off the coleslaw. Good stuff.

Oh I love quiches! Nice that you mention why you overcooked it so the rest of us might pay attention to that when we try.

And I love Jamie's coleslaw! :)

Cheers,
Kenny
