Here is another easy quiche recipe! This one is originally made with a typical French cheese called époisses after the eponymous village in Eastern France where it comes from. I used Brie but you can also add camembert, munster, chaumes, vacherin... or whatever soft cheese you like.
If you really have a hard time finding the perfect cheese for your easy quiche recipe you can always use feta cheese as well. Its fresh and rather sour flavor also works well in combination with the sweetness of the apple. And why not use a blue cheese and a couple of pears instead of apples? Serve the quiche with a fresh rocket salad.
Ingredients for 4 persons
9 oz (250 g) plain flour
7 oz (200 g) cold butter, diced
3 tbsp (45 ml) cold water
2 oz (55 g) Brie cheese, sliced
3,5 oz (100 g) Emmental cheese, grated
3 oz (85 g) sliced bacon
2 large eggs
1 cup (200 ml) heavy cream
Pour the flour in a clean blender and add the diced cold butter and a pinch of salt.
Blend into a dry mixture and pour in the cold water.
Pulse the flour until you get a moist but not too sticky dough.
Transfer it to a clean surface and knead the dough for a couple of minutes until smooth.
Roll the dough out and coat a tart tin.
Cover it with a sheet of baking paper and fill it up with baking beans or dried pulses.
Blind bake the shell in a preheated oven at 359°F (180°C) for 10 minutes. In the meantime peel and clean the apples. Chop them into bite-size pieces. Slice the bacon finely. Add both apples and bacon to a bowl and season with a little pepper and salt.
Mix it well. Add the heavy cream and the eggs to a high cup and blend it for a couple of seconds.
Once the quiche shell is cooked, let it cool for 5 minutes. Then sprinkle it with half of the grated cheese.
Top with the bacon and apple mixture.
Pour the heavy cream mixture on top. Top with the Brie cheese.
Sprinkle with the rest of the grated cheese.
Season with another pinch of pepper and salt. Bake the cheese quiche in a preheated oven at 400°F (200°C) for 30 to 35 minutes until the cream has set and the top starts to brown a little. Remove the quiche from the oven and let it cool for a couple of minutes before serving.
