True story: I started a new diet last week, and I was feeling pretty hungry as my body was still getting used to eating less food. To begin planning this week’s meals, I read through the recipe for Gorgonzola-Apple Quiche. It sounded so good to me, and made me remember how good the Spinach and Bacon Quiche was. In particular, I was thinking about the wonderfully delicious pastry crust. Now remember, I was feeling hungry. So, that night I literally dreamed about making and eating Gorgonzola-Apple Quiche. Elements of the dream stuck with me all night!
So, did the quiche live up to my dream? Yes! Especially that flaky, buttery crust.
The filling for Gorgonzola-Apple Quiche couldn’t be more simple. Spread the prepared tart shell with sauteed onions, top with diced apple and Gorgonzola Dolce cheese, then pour over a mixture of heavy cream and eggs.
The flavors of this quiche are subtle but delicious. My husband said he could not taste the apple, but I felt it provided a subtle sweetness. The taste of the Gorgonzola Dolce was also not very prominent. We ate this for dinner fresh out of the oven, but I ate a piece for lunch the next day. The Gorgonzola flavor came out a little more after resting overnight.
In case you missed it…earlier this week I posted a “recap” of some FFWD recipes from last summer that I cooked but didn’t get a chance to write about: Catching Up with Dorie.
