Julia Child’s : Quiche Loraine

Happy Sunday ! Tomorrow is Julia Child’s birthday – so I am sharing her quiche recipe that I have always made to celebrate Mom s and GG birthday. So enjoy todays recipe.

  • 6 to 8 pieces thick-sliced bacon
  • An 8-inch partially cooked pastry shell placed on a buttered baking sheet
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Pinch of pepper and nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  1. Preheat Oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Slice bacon into ¼ inch pieces and brown lightly in a frying pan; drain and spread in bottom of pastry shell. Beat eggs, cream, and seasonings in a bowl to blend.
  3. Just before baking, pour cream mixture into the shell, filling to within 1/8 inch of the top. Cut butter into bits and distribute over the cream.
  1. Bake in upper third of oven for 25 to 30 minutes, until quiche has puffed and browned, and a small knife, plunged into custard, comes out clean. Serve hot, warm, or cold; quiche will sink slightly as it cools.

Serves 4 to 6

Happy Birthday Julia Child! 🎂
