Hubby and I really enjoyed this wonderful combination of ingredients.
Onions, apples, and Gorgonzola cheese.
I used the recipe for tart dough that Dorie recommended, however,
every time I make this dough there does not seem to be enough to
make even this 9" tart. I'm wondering if other Doristas are having the
same problem or perhaps I'm doing something wrong.
I rolled the pastry out and to have it fit perfectly, it is so thin
and hard to handle. Any suggestions?
As for the quiche, the flavor was spot on.
I usually make a traditional quiche with Swiss cheese and bacon, but
this is definitely a nice change and will be repeated again many times.
Per Tricia :
I have yet to meet a quiche I didn't like, and was very
excited to try the Gorgonzola-apple combo. While we have had
many dishes with pear and blue cheeses, I had not
thought to incorporate the fruit/cheese combo into a quiche.
While high expectations usually spell a death knoll for my results
- they did not this time. This recipe delivered and then some.
Only my younger son was able to taste test this one and
although he loves blue cheese (has since he was small - go figure !)
he only wanted a "tiny piece" to taste after I told him what was in it.
He promptly declared it delicious and went back for a huge piece
....after declaring it wasn't as "sweet" as he feared it would be.
I can't rave enough about this combo.
I am racking my brain to think of another FFWD recipe
that I liked better than this. Granted, I love creme brulee....
but that was more of a fun experience to learn you could make
it at home than a "favorite new recipe". And that is what this
one is for sure. This was a new take on an old favorite, which I
would not have tried were it not for French Fridays. I can not
wait to make this again for family and friends - it is off the charts
delicious and very, very simple. Thank you Dorie !
