Classic Quiche Lorraine

Classic Quiche Lorraine is a simple and satisfying weeknight meal and a wonderful way to repurpose that Easter ham! Below you will see the classic interpretation of this very French dish. Feel free, as I often do, to add chopped artichokes, red bell pepper, mushrooms and even a layer of spinach that has been drained very well. Serve this alongside a salad and dinner is served!

Quiche Lorraine
1 sheet puff pastry
10 eggs
1/3 cup fat free half and half
1 cup grated Gruyere or Swiss cheese
1 ½ cups cubed ham
¼ teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper

Preheat oven to 400 degree. Unfold puff pastry sheet and using a rolling pin on a floured surface, eliminate the creases in the dough. Place the dough into a 9 inch pie plate allowing the corners to hang over. Sprinkle an even amount of cheese and ham into each tart shell. In a mixing bowl combine eggs, salt, pepper and milk and beat until well blended. Pour egg mixture into each shell. Fold the corners of the pastry over the filling and bake for 40-45 minutes or until pastry is golden brown.

About Lorie Fangio

I am a lifestyle advisor with a passion for connecting families Around the Table for mealtime. We are becoming a society that doesn’t even speak to each other, texting and internet relationships are the norm and it is impacting our culture. I believe the human connection as we know it, is in danger. Finding time to spend together as a family unit can be difficult especially with dual family careers and children that are often hyper scheduled. My mission is to inspire families, with a no nonsense approach to real food. Gathering Around the Table is key to the foundation of familial relationships. Sitting down to a meal is much more than breaking bread, it is a bonding ritual for families that actually protects our kids from all the dangerous stuff in the world. With tips and techniques we can all get our families Around the Table!
