  1. Dear Khadiza, I love your website but I have a comment on this recipe. Quiche Lorraine is made with pork product by definition- what you have posted is NOT Quiche Lorraine. It is vegetable quiche.

    • Thank you dear for your comment .. I agree , authentic quiche loraine must have crispy bacon strips in it .. but there are many variations as well , you just mentioned one vegetable quiche .. but my recipe is not completely vegetable quiche .. if you carefully go through the recipe , you have probably seen , it has chicken too .. 🙂
