The Little Quiche That Could

My semester abroad put a lot of things in perspective, and one of those things was quiche. One weekend, I traveled to Strasbourg, France to visit one of my good friends. It just so happens that her mom is an amazing Alsatian cook who used to own a French restaurant. That weekend, I ate a quiche Lorraine that rocked the entire European continent so hard that it was thought to have triggered the volcanic eruption in Iceland, consequently freezing air travel in northern Europe for weeks.

Bien fait, France! You sure know how to do eggs rights.

It’s almost a shame to shrink such scrumptiousness down, but it’s more of a shame to think about life sans mini quiche.

Breakfast, lunch, or dinner, this mainstream mini delivers at any hour. For starters (pun intended), no one would attend dinner parties, and Real Men would have to find another food not to eat. I dare not go further…

Cradled in a flaky and oh-so-buttery crust, quiches love a good ménage a trois: figs, mozzarella, and proscuitto; spinach, feta, and kalamata; mushroom, tomato, and asparagus… Sorry, my stomach is reminding me it’s dinnertime. So, until next post, bon appétit, mon petite!
