According to CD Kitchen, “While it’s really more of a savory pie, the name Quiche Lorraine more or less means “cake from the Lorraine region of France.” Typically a light meal of egg-and-cream custard served over a puff pastry or pie crust, such add-ins as bacon, cheese, onions, or what-have-you make a quiche more substantial and filling.”

book cover, real men don't eat quiche“Real men don’t eat quiche” was a saying made popular by a 1982 best-selling book of the same name. Wikipedia says, “The book’s humor derives from the fears and confusion of contemporary 1980s middle-class men about how they ought to behave, after a decade of various forms of feminist critique on traditional male roles and beliefs.”
