Paul Bocuse’s Quiche Lorraine (the chef of the century)
About this recipeDon’t expect me to lie : This is not the type of dish that’s recommended before showing your nice body on the beach of Santa Monica or Laguna Beach…
But who cares ? This quiche is SOOO good, you will think “why go to the beach and burn my skin ?”. Instead, spend your day baking and eating this quiche… a recipe from “the chef of the century”, Paul Bocuse.
This a French classic among friends, family, or just for your own diners !.
Like many quiches, this one is good the same day, but can hold a few days in the refrigerator.
Growing up in France, this was one dish that we would have all year around. Was one of my favorites, and still is…

You will need to prepare one of the Shortcrust Pastry Dough (“pâtes brisées” ):
All the Recipes of Shortcrust Pastry Doughs are HERE
|After your shortcrust pastry dough “pâte brisée” is ready and rested in the fridge, roll it out on a well floured surface into a 0.19" (or 13/64" or 0.5 cm) thick circle|
The MoldsFor the mold, I took a pastry ring, but you may find it easier to take a pie pan, that will need to lightly butter
|6. For the |
Bacon, French cooks use “Lardons“, which is a thick bacon slab cut into pieces.
Thick cut is difficult to find in the States, as bacon is usually cut thin.
To make lardons, I freeze my bacon (the thin slices stick together) and then I cut lardons, about 0.39" (or 25/64" or 1 cm) thick
The Batter10. For the batter, it’s easy ! Just whisk together :
Baking14. Bake in in preheated oven at 305 °F / 150 °C, for about
20 minutes. If the quiche colors too much, cover with aluminium foil
|15. After baking, let cool down at room temperature, the quiche will shrink slightly|
|You may eat it right away, even though I prefer leaving the quiche in the fridge |
24 hoursand then heating it up (I find it tastier)
