Quiche Lorraine (The Best)

  1. In a food processor, combine the flour and baking powder. Add the butter and pulse for a few seconds at a time, until the butter is the size of peas. Add the water and egg and pulse again until the dough just begins to form. Add ice water, if necessary. Remove the dough from the food processor and form a disc with your hands.
  2. On a floured work surface, roll out the dough. Line a 25-cm (10-inch) quiche plate. Fold the excess dough inward, pressing the edges to double the sides. With a fork, prick the bottom of the crust. Refrigerate for 30 minutes or freeze for 15 minutes.
  3. With the rack in the lowest position, preheat the oven to 190 ° C (375 °F). 


  1. Meanwhile, in a skillet, brown the bacon. Add the onion and cook until soft. Drain the cooking fat. Let cool.
  2. In a bowl, combine the cream and eggs with a whisk, until smooth. Stir in the bacon mixture and cheese. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Pour into the crust and bake for about 45 minutes or until the quiche is lightly browned. Let stand for about 10 minutes.


  1. Do you have to blind bake the crust?

  2. I added fresh mushrooms to the onions....delicious!

  3. Simply the best quiche lorraine I've ever eaten. Perfect.

  4. have made many quiche lorraines but this is the best. my guests gave it 5 stars also. i did reduce the wh. cream to 1 1/2 c. and used just 5 eggs as i knew the orig. recipe would not fit into the bought pie shell i had. it was perfect. this will be my recipe for the future. i did turn the oven off and left it in for another 8 or so minutes. excellent!

  5. how do i get all the comments? i only seem to be able to see 2.

  6. If I freeze this quiche, how long in the oven out of the freezer. Louisa van Yzendoorn
