Rebecka's Three Cheese Quiche Lorraine

Rebecka's Three Cheese Quiche Lorraine

Posted on

Saucy Mama is all about easy, quick - yet delicious- meals. But that's not always the case when it comes to featuring our World Food Championships (WFC) dishes! They're still delicious (and probably the MOST delicious, because they are WFC dishes after all!), but they're a bit more time consuming, as our competitors squeeze every ounce of their personal foodie touch and know-how into these masterpieces. And that's what it takes to win. 

Today we're featuring our Team Saucy Mama Bacon World Food Champion, Rebecka's, from  At Home With Rebecka, structured dish from the 2018 WFC. She scored a 92.375 in the opening round, where all the competitors had to create their take on a Quiche Lorraine. Rebecka infused our Saucy Mama Champagne Honey Mustard, which we think gives it that perfect sweet and savory touch! 

Check out Rebecka's blog and original post, and if you're feeling fancy on a weekend morning, whip up this Quiche Lorraine for a mouthwatering brunch!
