French lunch with a girlfriend

A lot of time i invite a girlfriend over and i make lunch for us. I usually make something French. I go simple too, because i don't want it to be a drag.  
Here is Tommy. He is very distant and not really a lover BUT, he will come and stay by me when i am on the computer. 

I love the quiche recipe, if you had quiche at Mimi's cafe or Thankgiving Point in Utah, it doesn't come even close. THIS IS the real stuff and it smells and taste like Paris....Like my Mom's kitchen...Ahhhhh it takes me back there. It is so good!!!

Cheese, bacon and onion quiche

  1. Pastry pie crust, mad or frozen.
  2. 1tbsp Dijon mustard.
  3. 6 bacon slices, cooked and cut in small pieces.
  4. 1 onion, chopped.
  5. 3 eggs.
  6. 1 cup sour cream
  7. 1/4 milk.
  8. 5 slices Suisse cheese, cut in small pieces.
  9. salt and pepper to taste.
Preheat oven at 400 F. Cut onion in small pieces, brown in non stick pan. If bacon is not cooked, cook before onions, take out of pan and brown onions in second. 

In bowl put together, eggs, milk and sour cream, cheese and salt, pepper. Dijon Mustard. beat together until well blended. Add bacon and onion.

Put the whole thing in pastry shell.
Bake until the top is golden and firm.


Slice, Serve with salad, tomatoes.

Take out your pretty dishes for your girlfriend.....Those need to be used not only stared at. LOL.

Enjoy some time with a friend and this French dish this week.
I am still working on my accessory line, i will talk about it tomorrow.
Good night or morning (In France)
Gros bisous.

Bonjour - This is my first visit to your blog. I so much like how you advise getting out the good dishes for the girlfriend lunch. That is very French to me. Your cat looks an awful lot like mine, who was born in Guyane. (Mine thinks he is a human because he never had his real mother.) Hope to be back for another visit. Merci pour votre acceuil.

What a good kitty to stay with you while you are on the computer.

Kim. How do i contact you, i don't tweet and you don't have an E mail adresse on your website. Yes, it is French, we have a culture of using everything we have and not have things only for "looking at it".

I have just got to stop reading recipes with pictures this late at night ( or early in the morning)because I am so hungry now.

I am hoping this comment goes through without that irritating mailer daemon returning it to me like the last few, many comments I have left!

Unknown said...

Blogspot had this problem with comments. I actually got error messages a lot and have 2 comments stuck in my dashboard....Oh well.

Stephanie said...

I love quiche dishes, vegetarian ;) however my fiance likes meat. Although he knows he has to add it separate if he wants it. Yours looks 100% better than Mimi's! I don't think that place is too healthy to begin with! I much prefer home cooking, you know what you are getting. Thank you for sharing this ;)

Unknown said...

Thanks for the recipe! I can't wait to try it. Yummy!
