Long considered a French classic, “Quiche Lorraine,” the original dish, actually originated in the medieval kingdom of Lothringen, Germany. When the borders changed during the Franco Prussian Wars, the region was renamed, Alsace Lorraine. The word ‘quiche’ is from the German ‘Kuchen’, meaning cake.  That original recipe was simply an egg and cream custard flavored with smoked bacon, much like this dish.

A quick substitute: Try thinly sliced leek instead of scallions, about 1 small leek, white part only.
