Firstly, I just want to tell you all that I really really appreciate all of the kind, lovely, and supportive words that you shared with me yesterday; Thank you from the bottom of my heart! It means the world to me – I wish I could hug each and every one of you! Ana is doing great, the flu is almost gone, and we are happy to be outside and playing in this 80-some degree weather.
There she is eating blueberries and waiting for a phone call, apparently.
And while she was waiting for that phone call, I was inside making this spinach pie errrr quiche.
At the beginning of the month I was so delighted to see that quiche was on the French Fridays with Dorie menu. I love me some quiche, especially one that comes with bacon!
First time I made quiche I was a freshman in high school, and I made Quiche Lorraine during French class. Our teacher, among other things, taught us how to gargle when we speak French and how to cook like the French.
I remember making this in class and thinking that I just put scrambled eggs inside of a pie shell – and that I wish I had put apples in there instead.
But, then the quiche came out of the oven, I took a bite, and thought the French were super lucky because their version of an omelette was waaaaay better than ours! It was cheesy, the crust was buttery and flaky, and the entire meal was simply delicious. Quiche became a regular breakfast/snack item on my menu.
This particular quiche that we got to enjoy last night is made with eggs, of course, spinach, bacon, cheese, onions and a tiny bit of garlic.
I enjoyed Dorie’s version of this quiche because she uses more filling and less cream and eggs; in my book, that is a winner quiche because I like my omelettes with a whole lot of fixins, and that is exactly what this one delivered.
