What is a Quiche?

The most notable of these savory pies is Quiche Lorraine made with crisp bacon and Gruyere cheese. Quiche is classically made in a quiche pan, which had fluted, straight sides and ranges in diameter from 8 to 12 inches. Quiche can be served as a lunch or dinner entree, or as a first course or hors d’oeuvre.
