Quiche Lorraine is a typical recipe of the French gastronomic tradition, known all over the world and appreciated for its easy realization and its simple but decisive flavor.
The basic filling of this classic savory pie is prepared by mixing together three main ingredients: eggs, bacon and cheese.
Naturally, over time, the basic recipe has evolved and has left room for other interpretations: such as, the Quiche Lorraine stuffed with eggs and vegetables, or the stuffed one with eggs and cheese, is very famous.

Steps

First prepare the Shortcrust Pastry. In a mixer put the flour, cold butter from the fridge, a pinch of salt and blend everything until you get a mixture "sandy". Pour all in one bowl and add the iced water kneading with your hands until you get a compact dough. Cover it with the plastic wrap and you put it in the refrigerator for 40 minutes.

Once ready, flour a work surface and roll out the dough very quickly, calculating that the circle of dough will cover the bottom of your pan, adhere to the edges and slightly overlap about 2 cm. Roll the dough on the rolling pin and place it on the 24 cm diameter cake tin, previously buttered and let the dough adhere well to the bottom and edges. Cut the excess dough with a cutter wheel or a knife and finally, with a fork , prick the pastry on the bottom of the pan.
