Saturday * Brunch

Good Morning everyone : It’s been a wet and cold week in Louisiana . But fairly quite. Since Today is the Saturday before Valentine I thought I would share my Mom favorite brunch item I make for Valentine:

Quiche Loraine

  • 1 1/2 cups  half & half (or light cream)
  • 4 eggs (beaten)
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • Dash black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 2 cups shredded cheese (Swiss, Cheddar, Colby, Havarti, your choice!)
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 8 slices bacon (cooked crisp and crumbled)
  • 1 9-inch unbaked  pastry shell (pie shell)

Pre Heat oven to 350 degrees :

Combine the half and half, eggs, salt, pepper, and thyme in a large bowl and beat well with a wire whisk .

In a medium bowl, toss the cheese with the flour and sprinkle into the unbaked pastry shell.Top with the bacon or other meats or vegetables that you want to use in the recipe, then carefully pour the egg mixture into the pie shell.Bake the quiche in the preheated oven for 40 to 50 minutes, until egg mixture is set, the filling has puffed slightly, and the top is golden brown.

Kitchen tips :

Depending on time of day you can serve : Soup ,Salad or fruit with your quiche.

You can change the type of cheese you use, according to what you have on hand. Leave out the bacon, or use ham or Canadian bacon. You can use a combination of cream and ordinary milk in place of half and half. Add sauteed vegetables. Use shrimp, or chicken, or cooked sausage .
