  • Summary

    (Pure Cheese Quiche) This is the essence of Madame Quiche's recipe — I can proudly say that when you make this, you will be tasting a very near replica of the small quiches she sells each Saturday at the Louviers market. There are a couple of keys to success here — be sure to let the pastry rest, as called for in the recipe. Don't stint on freezing the pastry — cold pastry that goes into a hot oven becomes extra flaky and delicious. Be sure to fully pre-bake the pastry as well, which guarantees crisp pastry on the bottom. Finally, whole milk makes a difference here — I highly recommend it over any lower fat varieties.

    Ingredients

    • One recipe for basic pastry
    • 6 large eggs
    • 2/3 cup heavy cream or crème fraîche
    • 1 cup milk (preferably whole)
    • 8 ounces gruyère, emmenthal, or other Swiss-type cheese
    • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg - optional
