Recipe Box, Summer Peach Quiche Lorraine

 

I have fond memories of Quiche Lorraine, the first time I ever had it was at a sophisticated lunch with my father and one of his colleagues

 

 

 

 

When I was in college I had a summer job as an intern for his company in downtown Los Angeles.  One day he invited me to go to lunch with him and we went to a very fancy restaurant at the top of an LA high rise

 

 

 

 

I ordered the Quiche Lorraine and thought I surely must be in heaven

 

 

 

Quiche, considered a part of French cuisine,

has a pastry crust and a filling of eggs and milk or cream

It can be made with vegetables, meat and seafood

Quiche is such a wonderful vehicle to use up a little of this and that

 

 

 

 

But you won’t think you’re eating leftovers

 

 

 

 

You will be enjoying an elegant meal!

 

 

 

 

For this updated version of Quiche Lorraine I sauteed prosciutto along with the onions

 

 

 

 

The pie crust is lined with sliced almonds and Parmesan cheese

 

 

 

 

Bake crust for 10 minutes to set

My sides slid down a bit but I just pushed them back up

If you use a traditional deep glass pie dish you can anchor the raw dough to the rim better than I could in this fluted quiche dish

 

 

 

 

Fill the partially baked pie crust with onions, prosciutto, bacon and fruit

 

 

 

 

Top with cheese

 

 

 

 

Mix eggs with milk and seasonings

 

 

 

 

Pour over all

 

 

 

 

Bake until set

 

 

 

 

Let sit for 10 minutes before slicing

 

 

 

Summer Peach Quiche Lorraine

  • Servings: 6-8
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

1 pie crust dough round

1 cup sliced almonds

1/2 cup Parmesan, shaved

1 peach, cut into bite sized pieces

1 plum, cut into bite sized pieces

2 oz. prosciutto

2-3 slices cooked bacon

1 sweet onion, chopped

2-3 oz. Gruyere cheese, grated

4 eggs

3/4 cup buttermilk, milk, or half and half

Salt & pepper

1 T butter

1 T olive oil

Place pie crust in deep pie dish. Sprinkle with sliced almonds. Top with Parmesan and bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes

Melt butter in skillet with olive oil. Add onion and cook over medium low heat, stirring occasionally, for 15-20 minutes until caramelized.

Remove onions to a plate. Turn heat up to medium high and add prosciuto. Saute each side until it begins to crisp. Set aside.

Fill pie crust with onions, fruit, prosciutto and Gruyere. Beat eggs with buttermilk and season. Pour into pie crust. Top with reserved gruyere. Bake at 350 degrees for 34-45 minutes until quiche is set.  Garnish with almonds if desired.

Crustless

Omit the pie crust altogether to make this a crustless quiche.  Spray your dish well with cooking spray and proceed with adding the onions, meat, fruit and cheese.  Pour the egg mixture over all and bake until set. Baking time may be shortened for this version.  Bake until eggs have thoroughly set in the middle.

    I’ve made quiche a number of ways but never with fruit. That sounds like an interesting twist.
