Use creme fraiche as a substitute for sour cream or as a sophisticated alternative to whipped cream.

I never make a quiche without this recipe. I just have to remind myself to make it ahead of time. Even if I forget, it still works pretty good after sitting out just overnight.

I have made this so many times - it delicious and now I keep it on hand. Once you taste it, you will never use anything else. Do yourself a favor and check out the recipes that have creme fraiche in it. I made the back and zucchini quiche and the creme fraiche (besides using the maple cured back and fresh everything) made the difference in making the quiche excellent!!!
