Norman Quiche




About: I'm a french mother, travel and cooking lover

In this recipe, I cook a quiche Lorraine and add typical ingredients from Normandy (where I live).

The result is a tasty and appetizing quiche to share at the aperitif or in main course.

Step 1: Best Quality for Best Taste

Before the cooking begins, I have compile a shopping list of all the ingredients you need :

  • 1 Flaky pastry : I could make it by myself but I admit that's easier and faster to buy an already done one.
  • Smoked pork chest : Mine comes from pig raised on the Manche (a and have been smoked there too.
  • 6 Eggs : From chicken kept under extensive holding conditions and in free range.
  • 20 cl of Norman thick cream.
  • 1 Camenbert cheese : To me the best cheese ever !

Step 2: Lets Heat the Oven !

  • First at all, heat the oven to 200°C
  • Put the pastry on a dish and put the dish 10 min in the oven to cook the pastry.

Step 3: Cream and Eggs

  • Put the cream under hot tape water to makes her melty
  • Take a mixing bowl and add cream, 6 eggs and pepper.
  • Mix it withe a fork.

Step 4: Bacon Bits

  • Cut of the smoked pork chest skin
  • Cut smoked pork chest in strip an cut strip in bacon bits

Step 5: Camenbert

Camembert (/ˈkæməmˌbɛər/; French: [ka.mɑ̃.bɛʁ]) is a soft, creamy, surface-ripened cow's milk cheese. It was first made in the late 18th century at Camembert, Normandy, in northern France.

  • Cut it in 2 equal part

Step 6: Mixing

  • FIll your plate with bacon bits eggs + cream + camenbert

Step 7: Cooking and Tasting

  • Put the dish 20 min on the oven at 200 °C.

Bon appétit !

    I'm trying to think of a something similar to the Norman cream I can get in the states. Sour cream, maybe? Looks so good! I want to make this!

    Hi !

    I don't know what sour cream is, but I don't think it's the same thing, try heavy cream if you can.
