"Quiche Lorraine"


So yesterday I decided to make a mushroom quiche.  Keep in mind that every time my husband walked by I had to hear a clip of "Sweet Lorraine" by Uriah Heep......only he was singing "Quiche Lorraine"....such simple pleasures.  I looked about the internet and the audio clips were just too darn long so I am not linking.  I heard the song clip enough from him.

For the quiche recipe I added asparagus and green pepper.  I omitted the onion.  I also used canola oil instead of butter to saute the vegetables.

Anyways,  I needed some pastry dough.  I have to admit that I am that kind of a person that buys my pie crust premade and prewrapped in the refrigerator aisle by the eggs.  Would you believe that I did not have any in the house and I kept forgetting to buy it?  I know....I am slacking off around here.

So I decided to make it from scratch from a recipe that I have used for the past 23 years.  I know you are supposed to use shortening or butter but I dislike shortening and I am severely lactose intolerant so butter is out the window.  

Pie Crust

2 1/2 cups of flour                          1 tsp. vinegar
1 cup of margarine (cold)                1 egg
1 tsp. of salt                                    5 tbsp. of VERY cold water

In a large bowl mix the flour, margarine and salt until crumbly.  In a small bowl mix the vinegar egg and water.  Add the small bowl to the big bowl then divide into four ball and roll for crust.  

I freeze the extra balls for when I need them.  Enjoy!!

  3. Freeze extra balls! Of course! I never freeze pie crust because I didn't want to roll it out first? Duh!

  4. Quiche is on my menu plan for one night this week! I love quiche. We used to say "quiche me.. quiche me quick!" (instead of kiss me) when my brother and I were growing up.

    Homemade crust is just so much tastier, don't you think? Now why didn't I ever think to freeze the extra. Hm. I usually just make half the recipe. Duh! :)
