Ah, quiche. One of the more traditional dishes, quiche gets its name from the German word ‘kuchen’, which translates to cake, and was later named “lorraine” in French. Traditionally, quiche is served with a crust, but it can also be found without one. I personally like to make this quiche recipe without the crust unless I have time to make it from scratch. If you are really craving that flakey crust and don’t have time to whip one up yourself, you can always use the store-bought version and bake it with the quiche filling inside. Here’s a quiche recipe that’s simple to make and sure to be a crowd pleaser.
