I had a couple of girlfriends over for lunch the other day and decided to pick up a quiche for a nice light entree. I’ve been getting quiches at Billy’s Bakery in Fairfield for years, but that day they really outdid themselves. I even called to tell them whomever made my quiche should be told it was the BEST quiche I’ve ever eaten (we tend to make calls only to complain, but I have resolved to call when things are great too!). Billy’s quiches are always good, but this particular one was outstanding (and, as my husband well knows, this is a word I reserve for very, VERY few things). Flaky homemade crust, creamy yet fluffy filling, layer of cheddar between the crust and egg/broccoli filling…delicious.
There are otherwise very good bakeries in the area that do not make homemade crusts, but rather use store-bought ones. Despite Billy’s being on the other side of town for me, it’s worth the extra few minutes to get there. All quiches are $12 each and are available daily. Call ahead to reserve one to be sure they aren’t sold out when you go (it’s happened to me before!).
I defy you not to love this quiche. I’m also a giant fan of their bacon quiche. And the three cheese. And the spinach-feta. But that broccoli cheddar? Divine…and I’m not sure I’ve ever uttered that word!
