Calling all brunch lovers! Was this on your table last weekend, or some special day this week?!? I am betting it was. Or maybe some of you even made it for a weeknight dinner. Yum.

    I tried two of Dorie’s quiches…spinach was good, but the mushroom was outstanding. Blogger is doing maintenance so hope my post will appear at midnight:

    This quiche came out of the oven with perfect timing…surprise! College kids unexpectedly came home for semester break and loved this dish.

    Hopefully blogger maintenance is completed soon and I’ll have my post up.

    I love a good quiche and this one was stellar – doubled the bacon and halved the spinach, but that’s just how we roll :) Up at midnight MST!

  4. RedsKitchenDiaries May 12, 2011 at 10:13 PM #

    as the French would say … PARFAIT!!! This was seriously yum –

    heck, even the mister who doesn’t like spinach in particular or quiches in general had 2 slices!

    • kudoskitchen May 17, 2011 at 3:10 PM #

      Love that your mister had two slices even though he’s not a huge fan of spinach or quiche. How fun to surprise the guy! This recipe was soooo good!

    Hi. I’m new to this board, but certainly not new to being a fan of Dorie’s cookbooks, in fact I own several. After cooking along with all of you quietly for the past few months I decided to sign up, and as my luck would have it, I completely bungled the first recipe!

    I take full responsibility. The thing is that when I lived in the US I would always take the lazy route and buy pre-made pie/tart crust. Now I live in Germany and, since the German’s don’t even have a word for pie, I have had to learn to make it myself. It has not been a smooth ride!

    The long and the short of it is that I did not repair the crack which formed in my pre-baked tart crust and the custard of course leaked out. I then researched my error and learned how to repair cracks, and went back and successfully made Gerard’s Mustard Tart… which was delicious!

    So even though my quiche failed, I’m going to call this week a win overall since I learned something new. And isn’t that what it’s all about.

      So true.

    • kudoskitchen May 13, 2011 at 5:04 AM #

      Hi Rosa! Welcome to this fun group. I look forward to reading all your posts and seeing your photos.
      BTW, failing is such a harsh word. Learning something new is much better! I’m jealous that you live in Germany…

    • Karla May 13, 2011 at 5:05 AM #

      Hi Rosa and welcome!

      I did the exact same thing with my pie crust. Will need a lot more practice with pastry, obviously.

      Great job with the mustard tart – I’ve not tried that one yet, but it sounds very intriguing!

      • rosa May 13, 2011 at 1:24 PM #

        I’m happy to hear that I wasn’t the only one!

        You should absolutely try the mustard tart. I think it was on the schedule for the rest of the group some time last year and I am just now catching up. Simply de-lish!

    • Miss Kris Kitchen May 13, 2011 at 9:05 PM #

      Welcome…and I also loved the mustard tart.

    • Bakeawaywithme May 16, 2011 at 2:19 AM #

      Glad you decided to join us. Also glad you persevered and mastered the pastry. Welcome!

  6. mardi@eatlivetravelwrite May 13, 2011 at 1:52 AM #

    I absolutely loved this one

  7. Tasty Trix May 13, 2011 at 3:24 AM #

    Thanks to Blogger being down, it looks like I’ll be doing French Saturday … and yes, I tweaked the recipe like crazy.

    • SisBoom May 13, 2011 at 6:33 AM #

      Ditto Ms. Trix. I tweaked mine into another continent. Just can’t show it to you because of the blogger mess.

    • Maya May 13, 2011 at 6:43 AM #

      I think mine went to another planet and the Martians got hold of the yummy quiche! Oh, Blogger Blues…please go away soon :-(.

  8. saffronandhoney May 13, 2011 at 4:35 AM #

    I love quiche! Such simple goodness.

  9. franklyentertaining May 13, 2011 at 4:55 AM #

    I’m cooking with my sister in San Antonio this week and we all loved this recipe.

  10. Pachecopatty May 13, 2011 at 4:58 AM #

    We loved this recipe! I will share my link as soon as Blogger is back in business, it might be French Saturday this week ;-(

  11. kudoskitchen May 13, 2011 at 5:00 AM #

    I wish I had gotten my post done before blogger went down. Boo. I’ll post mine as soon as I can, when it’s back up and running.
    In the meantime, this recipe was AWESOME!
    Loved every bite!!!!! Can’t wait to show and post.

  12. Karla May 13, 2011 at 5:03 AM #

    Yum, SPRING! I’ll really have to start reading the alternate versions of these recipes – I bet the mushroom would have been fantastic. I DO need to practice pastry, tho, so I should just try a mushroom quiche this weekend.

  13. ComeUndone May 13, 2011 at 5:43 AM #

    Replaced bacon with pancetta and chicken eggs with duck eggs. Best decision ever! I adore duck eggs.

  14. Bakeawaywithme May 13, 2011 at 5:47 AM #

    I also have my post ready but no blogger!! Will post as soon as Blogger resolves its problems.

  15. KarenP May 13, 2011 at 6:17 AM #

    Delicious! Even got my 7 year old to eat her spinach. :)

  16. mygreatmenu May 13, 2011 at 6:32 AM #

    Another delicious recipe! I enjoyed it as a quick lunch paired with a salad all week.

  17. SisBoom May 13, 2011 at 6:37 AM #

    Looks like Blogger is taking us all down this week. “Quelle Fromage!”,

  18. tricia May 13, 2011 at 6:41 AM #

    Blogger issues indeed. We look forward to posting as soon as the situation is resolved. For now, I will help myself to another piece of that AMAZING quiche…..

    This is my first time posting my efforts on my Blog. Last week I did make the Tourteau de Chèvre but my Web Site was going through a new design and I couldn’t post. Last week I shared my results. This week, I didn’t! Good for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack-time.

  20. anderlani1 May 13, 2011 at 6:57 AM #

    Really enjoyed this one, despite some crust-related fiascos. This is the only way, to date, that I’ve managed to get my toddler to eat spinach, so for me, it’s a definite keeper.

  21. Genkinaonna May 13, 2011 at 7:44 AM #

    Hallelujah the pie crust gremlins didn’t get me this time! Not like the week of the Torteau de Chevre…
    Good stuff, love quiche, will be making this again!

  22. Spike May 13, 2011 at 8:06 AM #

    with puff pastry and arugula. so good:

  23. Create Amazing Meals May 13, 2011 at 9:11 AM #

    Wow! Blogger dumped my original post, so here it is reconstructed!


  24. popsiclesandsandyfeet May 13, 2011 at 9:34 AM #

    Perfect for a playdate…..delicious, includes bacon, can be made ahead of time so there is more time to chat! Blogger took my original post…please imagine witty commentary.

  25. marcella May 13, 2011 at 9:54 AM #

    We’re back from a long break with a kitchen remodel. So nice to be cooking for real again! The quiche was a hit. We did add some mushrooms to the mix and I skipped the pre-baking of the crust part. I have never understood the need for that step when the whole thing is baked again for such a long time.

  26. Beth@omgyummy May 13, 2011 at 9:56 AM #

    Ok – so it really is Friday the 13th – I actually finished my cooking before Friday and am posting on Friday – a strange and wonderful thing! And what is even more strange (and wonderful) is that this group motivated me to make a tart crust from scratch in the middle of a busy and stressful week. And it was good! Heck, I’d say great. Dinner last night and breakfast and lunch today. And did I already mention that I made a tart crust from scratch on a busy Thursday!! OMG!

    Happy Friday everyone! Here’s the link:

  27. tammycirceo May 13, 2011 at 10:08 AM #

    Quiche is one of my favorite dishes. Although I tend to stick with the standard Lorraine version, I loved this one.

  28. kudoskitchen May 13, 2011 at 10:26 AM #

    With Love and Quiche’s!!!

    Pretty on the plate. Yummy in the tummy!

  29. Diethood May 13, 2011 at 11:42 AM #

    Terrific recipe!
    I love the fact that there was more filling than custard… and bacon! :) Beautiful quiche!

  30. Cocoa and Quinoa May 13, 2011 at 1:14 PM #

    I made it! It’s been so hot the past few days here in Chicago I hesitated to turn on the oven – but today’s cool, rainy weather is perfect for baking. This quiche is going to be great for dinner! Looking forward to next week’s salad already… the asparagus at the markets is so fresh.

  31. Tasty Trix May 13, 2011 at 1:30 PM #

    Finally home from work … Blogger is back up .. and so is my post!

  32. chriservin May 13, 2011 at 1:53 PM #

    My crust cracked, so the egg mixture seeped out a bit, but we still ate every bite. It was delicious!

  33. lola May 13, 2011 at 2:24 PM #

    We love quiche. blogger seems to be up again.

  34. Maya May 13, 2011 at 2:36 PM #

    I woke up, Blogger was also up, and my post was intact! So here it it…my quirky quiche ;-).

  35. Pachecopatty May 13, 2011 at 2:38 PM #

    Quel Malheur! Blogger dumped my post so I had to redo the entire thing, so here it is, finally!

  36. kmdevone May 13, 2011 at 2:38 PM #

    Oh my gosh, I’ve had such problems with the site being down last night and some of today. Then I tried to upload my picture and the error message read ‘server rejected’. Thank God the quiche wasn’t a reject! However, my picture didn’t post:-(

  37. kmdevone May 13, 2011 at 2:40 PM #

    Oops, I forgot the link: It’s Friday the 13th, am I having alittle bad luck with my technology today? :-)

  38. cdcooks May 13, 2011 at 2:40 PM #

    Finally! This was a great dish and we loved it! Nearly didn’t happen as my computer hid my photos and my husband had to go digging for them…and then blogger had issues…it’s been interesting.

  39. Tasty Trix May 13, 2011 at 3:08 PM #

    Trevor of Sis! Boom Blog is on a work trip so I am posting his awesome Mexican version of Dorie’s quiche. Check it out!!

  40. Candy May 13, 2011 at 5:16 PM #

    Loved this, even during a busy cooking evening…

  41. laurcl May 13, 2011 at 7:10 PM # – yum – loaded with flavor and not just cheese.

  42. Alfred1adams May 13, 2011 at 7:58 PM #

    Can’t wait to have it for breakfast

  43. thesavourypage May 13, 2011 at 9:28 PM #

    Such a good recipe and I learned the valuable lesson of not doing all the steps at once. Eek burned bacon.

  44. heather.nelson May 14, 2011 at 6:56 AM #

    This one I liked. mmmmmm, bacon, my weakness.

  45. Allison May 14, 2011 at 12:58 PM #

    Finally got this written Blogger being down was a great excuse to get outside in the sunshine though!

  46. Food Librarian May 14, 2011 at 2:02 PM #

    My scale told me I should make this crustless and with ham instead of bacon. It was still yummy!!!

  47. Monica May 14, 2011 at 5:23 PM #

    Delicious for breakfast, lunch & dinner!

    • mlw May 15, 2011 at 5:31 PM #

      Ditto – better late than never!

  48. ryanbakes May 15, 2011 at 8:01 AM #

    A little bit late but we loved this quiche! :)

  49. Elaine May 15, 2011 at 12:06 PM #

    I was out of town last week and didn’t get to make the torteau, but I am so glad that I made this quiche even though it is a few days late.

  50. stoutkitty May 15, 2011 at 12:39 PM #

    Well I also used an already made pie crust. I had a gluten free one that needed to be used and got an invitation by my daughter to go to an art show so I choose to cut a few things to make both the quiche and some memories.

  51. Jacquelyn May 15, 2011 at 1:46 PM #

    Ok, FFWD friends, how do we cook all these delicious & very divine AMFT recipes without the scales showing it? I would love some of your secrets….

  52. LuLuCooks May 17, 2011 at 10:22 AM #

    I finally made the quiche last night. Used the wrong size pan (too large) so it came out like pizza which my kids loved. Cheated and used a Pillsbury crust which I won’t do again b/c it sucked, but the rest of the quiche was lovely.

  53. Toni May 18, 2011 at 8:22 PM #

    The flavors were really lovely but I felt like there wasn’t enough body for the filling, which is dense and savoury. While I did follow the recipe I was feeling like it needed more egg and cream or milk. Maybe I need to keep an open mind and discover new tastes and textures…this is why I am following this regime! Anyway, we loved the flavor but found it a bit thick for our liking…anyone else?

  54. jemangepdx May 21, 2011 at 11:34 AM #

    Here is mine –

    Only 2 weeks late ;-) Plus, I posted some vacation pics on this post (the reason it’s so late)…

  55. the_frilly_apron May 22, 2011 at 3:53 PM #

    I couldn’t resist digging into this right away. It smells divine when it’s cooking.

    This is the best quiche I’ve ever made. And probably one of the easiest.

    TY Dorie!
