National Quiche Lorraine DayNational Quiche Lorraine Day

May 20th marks National Quiche Lorraine Day. This versatile dish has made a name for itself as a brunch and soiree staple. 

While the history of the day itself is unclear, quiche Lorraine is generally considered to be a French creation, though, during the time in which it is thought to have been invented, during the 1500s, that particular region of France, now known as the Lorraine region from which it gets its name, was under German control as the Kingdom of Lothringen. 

In fact, the word quiche is simply the Francofied version of the German word for cake, kuchen. The original recipe called for filling a bottom crust with custard and smoked bacon and cooking the open pie in a cast-iron skillet, with cheese only being added to the mix many years later. 

From there, quiche served as a catchall peasant dish until it began gaining popularity in the US in the 1970s. With this newfound fandom, quiche Lorraine quickly became a favorite for gatherings.
