The origins of Quiche lorraine dates as far back as 1373 in the Lorraine region of France. Lorraine is in the northeast of France and it very close to the German border. Many think that the word quiche comes from the German kuchen, which means cake.
Our recipe comprises of a few simple ingredients; a filling of eggs, bacon, milk, cream, cheese, pepper and nutmeg, all encased in a shortcrust pastry. For our recipe, we have chosen to use cheddar cheese as it is more readily available in the UK, however, the original recipe has gruyere cheese. The total prep time for this recipe is about 30 minutes and 1 hour cooking time at an oven temperature of 190C/170C Fan/Gas 5.

If you love quiche Lorrain but are looking for a dairy free option you can make this recipe without cream and milk but you will need to substitute them for a dairy free alternative like unsweetened almond milk. You will also have to replace the cheese or go without it entirely.
That’s the real beauty of a quiche, there’s no real right or wrong way to make it, it’s completely customisable to your taste. You can try adding mushrooms, spinach or courgettes. If you like you can even try it without the pastry crust for a lighter taste!
