EASY QUICHE LORRAINE

 

From France come the quiche we love. There are infinite variations of the filling, with vegetables, cheese and more.

This that I make today, is very easy to prepare, does not need precooking the base and isn’ t made with butter. The flavor is rich with cheese, spicy from bacon and creamy tomato adds flavor and moisture at the end.

When you make it for the first time definitely will remake it soon. Perfect to accompany a meal, ideal for buffets and parties.
