In addition to being a great song by The B – 52’s rock group, quiche lorraine is also a tasty, crusted, custard – like egg dish that contains Swiss cheese, bacon, onions and sometimes, chives. This week, I had the opportunity to try Nancy’s Quiche Lorraine, a frozen product that is available at supermarkets across the United States.
This brand of frozen quiche is very flavorful and expertly – prepared. Almost as nice to look at, as it is to eat, this variety of quiche lorraine heats in just minutes and serves equally well as a breakfast, lunch or dinner item.
Presented here, is one food writer’s product review of Nancy’s Quiche Lorraine.
The net weight of the standard – sized package of Nancy’s Quiche Lorraine is six ounces and according to the package’s nutrition label, one quiche counts as one serving. When I first saw this quiche, I thought that it looked pretty small, but in actuality, it turned out to be quite filling, when I ate it along with a small garden salad.
The regular retail price charged for one six ounce package of Nancy’s Quiche Lorraine at Hartford, Connecticut area supermarkets is approximately $2.49. I think that this price is very reasonable. If you were to bake a quiche lorraine from scratch, the cost of ingredients would be more than $2.49, then there would be all of the time and effort that would be required.
This brand of frozen quiche lorraine offers a delightful texture that speaks of high quality ingredients and expert baking methods. Resembling a creamy custard, the main body, or egg part of the quiche is light and fluffy and dotted with bits of bacon, chives and onions, which add some interesting substance to the custard.
The crust on Nancy’s Quiche Lorraine is light and flaky, yet firm enough to provide a nice sense of contrast to the egg mixture. I think that the texture of this frozen quiche lorraine easily rivals that of most restaurant – prepared versions of the dish.

Taste / Flavor
If you are a fan of quiche, especially quiche lorraine, chances are you would enjoy eating Nancy’s Quiche Lorraine. On the front label of the package it is stated that no artificial ingredients or preservatives are used in the product. As soon as I tasted this quiche, I could tell that real, high – quality ingredients were used in the item’s preparation.
The custard, if you will, maintains a nice balance of flavors that work well together. The egg, Swiss cheese and milk base of the quiche is nicely – seasoned and the random pieces of real bacon, chives and onion accentuate the base wonderfully.
The crust that holds this quiche in place is very tasty. Golden – brown in hue, the crust of Nancy’s Quiche Lorraine features a luxurious flavor that offers the unmistakeable taste of butter. I think that this crust tastes rich, yet light at the same time. The combination of the custard and crust in this frozen quiche provides a satisfying flavor that to me, tastes accessibly – elegant.
Nancy’s Quiche Lorraine is packaged in a predominantly blue and red box that features a close – up illustration of the enclosed product in the foreground. Inside the box, the quiche is further packaged in a paper – like tray and a plastic wrapper. The box is easy to open and the rear label lists all relevant ingredient and nutritional information.
All things considered, Nancy’s Quiche Lorraine is a delicious, reasonably – priced frozen item. Although it is not really difficult to make, most people do not want to make quiche from scratch. Enter Nancy’s Quiche Lorraine. This delightful quiche lorraine can be heated in just a few minutes and its taste and texture rival that of restaurant – prepared quiche. This product is highly recommended.
