The French and delicious cuisine go hand-in-hand, and the French definitely got it right when they perfected the quiche. That buttery, flaky crust filled with light, delicate eggs encasing an array of vegetables or meat—the quiche is truly a beautiful thing.
This recipe is for a lovely bacon, scallion, and fontina quiche. Vegetarian? Just substitute the bacon with a non-meat item of your choice, such as red peppers, mushrooms, or spinach.
This dish is delicious hot or at room temperature. It can even be served cold, say, for a picnic. A glass of crisp white wine and a simple green salad are the perfect complements to this bacon, scallion, and fontina quiche. Enjoy!
*Any French recipe that calls for eggs will assume that the eggs are already at room temperature. Why? Eggs are not traditionally refrigerated in France, so there would be no point in adding that information to a French recipe. Keep this in mind when you make other French dishes, such as omelets or hollandaise sauce.
