Quiche For Cheese Lovers

Posted: March 1, 2007
by: T.Alexander

Laurent Madeleni is currently in the US from France and has started her very own French recipe blog - French Gourmet Recipes. I find it exciting to look through the eyes of a French woman, away from home, as she craves the flavors and tastes from her native France. So what does she do? She invites some friends over and prepares her favorite French dish. Read on and enjoy Laurent's experience and recipe for Quiche.

Emotions & Passions by Laurent Madeleni:

I arrived in the US not so long ago but I already missed pleasing my mouth with cheeses flavors. So last time I cooked this Quiche, or Pie, it was 2 weeks ago, and even while I was cooking I was feeling home. A couple of friends joined, they are not French but they love gourmet food, and after 45 min they stop talking - The smells of the melted cheese were teasing our noses: the quiche was ready! Right after I started to cut the quiche in 4 slices, liberating the cheeses smells, it was time to let the flavors take control of our senses! I also suggest to serve this quiche with a lettuce salad, mixed with vinaigrette (next post I will tell you how to make a good vinaigrette!!!)

The 4 Cheeses Quiche - For the Cheese Lovers!

The quiche is always the same basis (eggs and pie shell) - In this recipe I will just change and give you advice to compose with cheeses only.

Ingredients :

4 eggs
1 cup half-&-half
½ cup real mayonnaise

3 ounces cut chaumes Cheese
3 ounces Doux de Montagne Cheese
3 ounces Champignon Cambozola
3 ounces Pecorino romano Cheese
1(9-inch) unbaked pie shell


Preheat the oven to 350F. Hand whip eggs, half-&-half, mayonnaise and flour in a medium mixing bowl. Add the onions, the cut Chaumes Cheese, the other cheeses and season the mix with salt and pepper. Pour into an unbaked 9-inch deep pie crust, bake it for 45 min to 1 hour or until the top is golden brown. Serve and enjoy!!
