It's Lindsey, and I'm back with another French recipe for the sixth day of Christmas, a quiche for Six Geese a Laying! Now of course, the song says six geese a laying, but don't worry, this recipe calls for regular chicken eggs.
Obviously, while I was living in France I ate a lot of quiche. Quiche is such a quick and simple meal, and you can spruce it up any way you like! This quiche recipe is very basic and just calls for spinach, but you could easily add anything else you'd like to it. For example, it would be very easy for you to chop up some onion and toss it in to this quiche recipe. Or you could fry up some bacon and chop it up and sprinkle it into the filling once it is in the crust. You could also slice up zucchini and place them on the bottom of the crust and pour the egg filling over the top for a nice Quiche Courgette (courgette is the French word for zucchini.)
A word on the crust. When I was in France you could pie pre-made crusts and would be labeled pate brisee or pate feuillette. Pate brisee is what they use for quiche. As I did some research into how you make pate brisee, I realized it was very similar to our basic pie crust. They usually make it with butter, but as you know, we make our pie crust with shortening and it works just as well.
So here it is, my basic French Quiche recipe, you are going to love it!
