Lemon & Black Pepper Quiche

I usually love quiche; buttery, flaky crust, rich custard, and delicious filling combinations. Unfortunately this quiche was not for me, and was borderline inedible. I re-read the recipe both during and after baking just to make sure I made it correctly. I did. It’s gross.

My Mom and I ate this for lunch today and were pretty disappointed. I don’t think there are enough eggs in the custard – only 2 eggs and 2 yolks combined with 2 cups of cream/creme fraiche. I compared this to a quiche recipe I love and that one has 3 whole eggs with 1 1/2 cups of cream/sour cream. It was just too creamy. To make matters worse, the lemon (juice + zest) overpowered the whole thing. I said to my Mom that if you added just a few tablespoons of sugar, you’d feel like you were eating lemon pudding or lemon curd.

On the bright side, I made a great salad with strawberries, pistachios, sunflower seeds and a mango poppyseed dressing, and some perfect blueberry muffins that we loved.

Sorry to hear you didn’t like this quiche, Robyn. I’m glad you enjoyed the rest of your beautiful meal though!

I’m sorry this was a bust for you – especially because you decided to share it with your mom! I completely spaced on it. Everyone’s quiches look beautiful, but they’ve sure received mixed reviews!

I’m glad I’m not the only one who thought this was way too lemony… it was like a lemon bar-quiche, which was not a good flavor sensation. Sigh, well they can’t all be winners! :)

I come for the recipes and the pictures but what I really want is the honesty! Amazing!
