I went to a friend’s child’s birthday party the other day, and they served the most delicious Quiche Lorraine. I know that quiche is know considered a very “eighties” dish. From what I can tell, it is also clear that some people love quiche and others really dislike it. Personally, I do find that with quiche, it is very hit and miss. Unless it is a good quiche, I would rather just order something else off a menu. However, what I have found, is that it is possible to make a frittata with the more or less the same ingredients as a Quiche Lorraine, minus the crust, and not only is it easier and faster to make, but the majority of people, I have found, enjoy it. It is essentially a glorified omelette, that I enjoy making for friends and family if hosting lunch, and it’s perfect for a child’s birthday party as a dish that guests can serve themselves, as you can enjoy it cold or warm. This version has a few extra egg whites in the mix, which means that it is a little fluffy, which is how I prefer it. It also has a Cypriot touch, with a little bit of lountza mixed in. I hope you enjoy. Getting ready to announce some big news in the next couple of weeks too, so thanks for reading, and I hope you will celebrate with me soon!
