Indie work: Make a Quiche Lorraine to serve to your class

In French cuisine, a quiche ( /kiːʃ/) is a baked dish that is based on a custard made from eggs and milk or cream in a pastry crust.

Other ingredients such as cooked chopped meat, vegetables, or cheese are often added to the egg mixture before the quiche is baked.

Quiche is generally an open pie (i.e. does not contain a pastry covering), but may include an arrangement of tomato slices or pastry off-cuts for a decorative finish. Quiche can be eaten warm but is more commonly eaten cold, making it a suitable component of the food served in a typical summer picnic.

Your teacher recommends that you make 2 (9 inch) quiche pies: 1 for your family and 1 to serve in class. Quiche is quick and easy; there are many recipes to choose from.

Bring a printed list of your ingredients, si'l vous plait.
