Feta and Graviera Quiche with Bacon

Quiche with feta and graviera image

Quiche, pronounced keesh, is a French, savoury open tart consisting of pastry crust, filled with eggs, milk or cream, and cheese, meat, seafood or vegetables.  Discover a new twist I made to this French favourite with Greek cheeses.

The sound “sh” does not exist in the Greek language, so most of the Greeks pronounce it as Kiss Lorraine.  When I first heard of this dish, many years ago,  I always visualized a kiss going with this recipe 🙂

I made this Greek-style Quiche during the Christmas holidays, using feta, graviera cheese and some bacon.

To make the quiche I used store bought pastry called Kourou, which is a Greek short-crust pastry, which is suitable both for savoury and sweet creations.

I bought the Kourou before the holidays, as I was intending to make a turkey pie with the leftover Stuffed Turkey, but after thawing the pastry, we decided that we wanted a curry with the leftover turkey.

As I had already thawed the phyllo pastry, I had to use it.  I did not have enough cheese to make a classic Greek Tyropita, so I decided to make a Quiche, using ingredients I had at home.  The package has two sheets of phyllo, so I used one for the quiche and I made an apple pie with the other.  The sheets are rectangle, so on both sides they were longer than the other two sides.  I did not want to cut it around the rim, so I crimped* it on the two sides.

In the quiche I added some of my Gourmet Salt I made with mint, which added a very subtle taste of peppermint, which pairs well both with feta and graviera.  If you don’t have any salt with peppermint, you can add regular sea salt and crumble 1/2 tsp mint.

The quiche was easy to make and my family loved it.  It was light and the combination of these two Greek cheeses with bacon made it divine.

Leftovers were great, which we enjoyed during brunch the next day.

If you want to make the dough from scratch, you can use my Basic tart shell, or Kourou pastry.

*Note:

In order to crimp the pastry, use both hands and twist the leftover phyllo inwards, over the rim of the pan to create a scalloped effect.

    Hi Ivy, This quiche looks amazing. Personally, I think “kiss” is a much more fun name for this dish – very cute!
