What Are The Main Ingredients In Quiche Lorraine?
Quiche Lorraine is the most common type of quiche. Its original ingredients included egg, cream and bacon, with cheese (usually Swiss) added later on. A cheeseless Quiche Lorraine contains the following ingredients: bacon, egg pastry, eggs, half-and-half cream, whipping cream, salt, ground white pepper and freshly grated nutmeg. This is made by preparing the egg pastry for the quiche, baking it for ten minutes, adding the cooked bacon and beating all the other ingredients together and adding them to the pastry shell. Rather than buy the pastry ready-made, you could make your own shortcrust pastry for a Quiche Lorraine. The main ingredients for shortcrust pastry include plain flour, lard, butter or margarine, salt and cold water, though if you are pushed for time then you can buy shortcrust pastry ready-made – just simply roll it out. However, if you wish to stick to the traditional way of making Quiche Lorraine, then bread dough would be best.
