Bacon Brie Quiche: In French Cuisine the Quiche is a classic dish. But it actually originated from Germany. The word Quiche is from the German word Kuechen. the original Quiche Lorraine was an open pie with filling consisting of an egg and cream custard with smoked bacon and or pork pieces. It was only later that cheese was added to Quiche Lorraine. Add onion and you have Quiche Alsacienne. The bottom crust originally made from dough, but that has long since evolved into a short-crust of puff pastry crust. Quiche became very popular in England after WWII, and the U.S. in the 50's
