Discover The Recipe

A savory egg custard baked in a flaky pie crust, quiche is often thought of as a brunch recipe. However, our take on this classic dish will convince you that Herbed Quiche Lorraine deserves to satisfy your appetite any time of day or night. Our version has a creamy soft texture that contrasts beautifully with the bacon and sharp cheese. With the addition of the classic French seasoning of Herbs de Provence, a blend that contains a bounty of fresh dried summer herbs, this delicious egg custard will become one of your favorite dishes to make and keep on hand to reheat for a luscious and quick meal.

This herb blend originates from the southeastern region of Provence, which runs from a corner of the Alps down along the glamorous coast of the Mediterranean Sea. Local Provençals gather fresh summertime herbs like lavender, thyme, savory, and basil and dry them to imbue their dishes with delightful summery-herbal flavor long after the summer sunshine departs. Use our Herbs de Provence blend in a wide spectrum of dishes from roasted meats, baked fish, to pasta sauce to add the flavor of summer to your meals. 

Ingredients

  • ¼ lb bacon

  • ½ yellow onion, chopped

  • 4 eggs

  • 1.5 cups whole milk

  • ¼ tsp salt

  • 1 Tbsp Piquant Post Herbs de Provence

  • 1 cup sharp white cheddar cheese, shredded

  • 9 inch pre-made pie crust

Notes

If using a store-bought crust, follow the package instructions for pre-baking, if needed. Or make your own homemade pie crust.

Add in additional veggies or meat, just be sure to cook them before adding to the mixture.

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a medium skillet, cook the bacon over low heat, until crispy. Remove and cut into 1/4 inch pieces. Using some of the bacon drippings, stir fry the onions until browned, about 3-4 minutes. Set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk eggs. Add whole milk, salt and Piquant Post Herbs de Provence. Whisk together for about 2 minutes to incorporate a little bit of air. Stir in the cheese, cooked bacon and onions. Pour the filling into the crust.

Bake for 40-50 minutes, or until the eggs set and the middle jiggles slightly.
