Surprise, surprise! Quiche originated in Germany, altough its considered as a traditional French dish. The version which I am introducing to you comes from Lorraine – a region in France.
The first time I have eaten quiche in my life was at the birthday of my boyfriends sister. Kathis boyfriend has mother who lived in France and loves cooking. So she made this amazing quiche with bacon! Some months later I have also decided to make my own one – the traditional Lorraine way. And here it is! Quiche is easy to make and can be served hot or cold.
Knead the butter with flour. Add 3 spoons of cold water, cheese, garlic salt and pepper. Mix them all together.
Leave the mixture to rest for 1 hour in a cold place.
Cut ham and onions into cubes, chop herbs, crash garic using a press, put it all in the bowl.
In the seperate bowl whisk the eggs, cheese and cream. Add salt & pepper.
Preheat the oven to 200°C.
Press the dough into the bottom and up the sides (3cm height) of the tart pan with your hands. Put it in the oven for 10 minutes.
Change the temperature of the oven to 250°C.
Take the dough out from the oven, spread the ham and then pour the egg mixture over it.
