Quiche Lorraine on a Friday.


Our oldest son is on his way back to Australia after three months at home. He has one year left of his studies down under, and then we hope to have him back north :-). With son #2 well placed in his own flat, we are again back to only four around the table. Today Marta went to kid's club in church and had pizza there, so suddenly we were only three ..... this sounds more and more like an Agatha Christie novel.....:-)
Ingrid had a long day with several rounds of handball practice, and wanted an extra treat for Friday dinner, and after looking through several cookbooks her choice fell on
Quiche Lorraine.
I made the pastry of:
100g butter
220g white flour
1 egg
a little salt
The pastry rested in the fridge for a couple of hours, and meanwhile I prepared the filling:
braise leek and bacon cut in dices,
mix with three eggs, a box of creme fraiche, pepper and cheese (any favorite, I use half parmesan, half Norwegian Jarlsberg.
Roll the pastry to fit the quiche dish, bake for 10 minutes at 200C. Take the pastry out and cover it with the filling. Back in oven with the dish and bake for 25 minutes.

We ate the quiche with a green salad, and sprinkeled the plate with parmesan.
