Lobster Quiche

This summer, a friend invited me to her family's vacation home in Maine and made lunch reservations at Jordan Pond House in Acadia National Park. The traditional thing to do there is have tea and popovers. But the highlight of the meal for me was a piece of lobster quiche. It was a small piece of quiche but it was so yummy that I immediately looked for recipes when I got home. Since lobster was on sale for $3.99/pound, it was even an affordable indulgence. Besides, making this at home gave me an entire quiche for the price of a single serving when eating out. I highly recommend giving this recipe a shot. The sweet lobster flavor comes through in every bite. Liked it so much we made it again when we had some friends over for dinner.
