Julia Child’s Quiche – easy bacon and swiss quiche recipe. Bacon, swiss, eggs, heavy cream, salt, pepper and pie crust. Seriously the most amazing quiche recipe EVER!!! Can make ahead and freeze for later.
On the plane ride to and from Vegas I read My Life in France by Julia Child. We saw the movie Julie and Julia and I was very interested in learning more about Julia Child’s life. The book was great. It was different from the movie and had many more details. I was inspired to finally try some of the recipes in Mastering the Art of French Cooking. I chose the quiche as my first test. The quiche was rich and velvety and extremely flavorful. I added bacon and swiss – a combination of Quiche Lorraine and Quiche au Fromage de Gruyere. I wanted to eat the whole thing by myself.
