The word “Quiche” comes from the German “Kuchen” meaning pie.
And “Lorraine” is a region in France, where making savory pies with eggs, cream, and bacon is most common. This recipe could have a bunch of variations, so each one of you can add something to it. I like to make it for the guests because it looks really festive. Also, you can have it for breakfast, on weekends when you have a little bit more time. When it comes to this pie, no amount of onion is too much, so you can even double or triple the amount and your pie will be thicker and just delicious anyways.
In other words, you can totally relax and make best of your fantasy while making this pie and the result will definitely be tasty and colorful.
