How to Make Quiche Lorraine

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 375ºF. In a large skillet over medium heat, melt butter. Add onion and suaté until soft but not translucent, about 4 minutes. Add red pepper and sauté for 3 minutes. Add garlic and sauté for 2 minutes. Add mushrooms and black pepper. Cook until reduced, 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine bacon and spinach; mix well and set aside. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs and milk. Add nutmeg, cayenne, pepper, basil and oregano; mix well. Transfer bacon mixture into egg mixture; blend well. Add cooked veggies and combine until well mixed. Sprinkle a few drops of hot sauce. Add grated cheese (or crumbled) and combine mixture until well blended.
  3. Pour mixture into pie crust and cover edges with foil or place a pie crust shield over top. Transfer to preheated oven and bake for 35 to 45 minutes or until a kniefe inserted in the middle comes out clean. Remove from oven and let it sit for 5 minutes before serving. Serve with a green salad
  4. Note: Sauté veggies in a little bacon fat. If using fresh spinach (about 7 oz.), steam for 3-4 minutes, tossing occasionally. Drain and rinse with cold water. Gently squeeze to remove excess water and coarsely chop it. Add sliced tomatoes on top
