mushroom and shallot quiche

Better late than never right? Well, I certainly hope so, because after accidentally buying the wrong chocolate, things aren’t looking too good for this week’s mousse recipe either. In any case, last week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe was Mushroom & Shallot Quiche. Yum!

I love quiche. I hate making tart crust. Do you see the problem? But Dorie keeps throwing all these tempting recipes at me which are forcing me to learn. And little by very little, it does seem to be getting easier.

On the subject of tart/pie crust, what do you do with your extra scraps of dough? I follow my mother’s practice of rolling it out, smearing it with butter, sugar or maple syrup, chopped nuts if I happen to have them on hand, and then rolling it into a log and baking it. I suspect that my mother did this to distract me so that I would leave the pie alone until it cooled. I can attest that it is a tasty little distraction, also good with a cup of tea.

But quiche is what we are talking about today. Dorie has several recipes for quiche in her book and I have loved them all. This one was no exception and I will definitely make it again. Maybe even soon, I do now have an extra portion tart dough in my freezer. Or do I make the gorgonzola-apple quiche again? Decisions decisions…

  1. I really loved this too and it surprised me because I’m not a huge mushroom fan. Beautiful little quiche!

    Judging by the results – it looks like it was worth the wait.
    P.S. The mousse was an epic fail for me 😦

    Looks good! I loved this one, so I’d vote for making it again instead of the apple-gorgonzola. I like the photo of all the raw ingredients in the crust. Cute!
    I sprinkle the dough scraps with cinnamon-sugar and have it as a snack. A treat for the cook!

    Looks good! I never seem to have any crust left over. For that matter, I usually have a hard time getting my crust to fill the pan at all.

  5. I like the look of your “pre-quiche”! Cute idea.

    Looks great and the crust turned out well. I love to bake any scraps of dough left over,
    it seems a shame to waste them. Your presentation looks perfect with the broccoli on the side.

    Rose, fabulous looking Mushroom and Shallot Quiche! And the broccoli as a side dish sounds like a delicious choice – very much a wonderful fall dinner!

    Have a great week! – It is raining again…

    Your quiche looks great Rose! We liked this one too! When I was growing up my mom gave me the dough scraps and the rolling pin and let me roll them out. Then we’d butter them, sprinkle them with cinnamon sugar and cut them in strips. I loved those ‘pie cookies’ and still do! Thanks for reminding me:)

    I am a little naughty and throw out the scraps of pastry. Your quiche turned out so well.
