Quiche Lorraine Recipe

I’ve been sharing a few recipes that I’ve created using produce from Aldi with summer in mind. Quiche is one of my favourite things to eat over the summer and it’s perfect for dinner with a jacket potato and salad, a light lunch or to take on a picnic. Today I’m sharing one of my favourite quiche recipes, a classic, Quiche Lorraine recipe.

    Quiche Lorraine always reminds me of growing up. Mum used to cater for our riding club judges/helpers and hers was awesome. Must try to make this, thanks x
