Ingredients

  • 1 pie crust
  • 1 tbsp butter unsalted
  • 1 leek cleaned and chopped
  • 4 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup cream I used 35% cream
  • 1/4 tsp salt or to taste
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper or to taste
  • 8 slices bacon chopped and fried
  • 1 1/2 cups cheese shredded, such as cheddar or gouda

Instructions

Quiche Crust

  • If making your own pie crust, preheat the oven to 425 F degrees. Follow the instructions outlined in my pie crust recipe for making the crust, then blind bake it. Blind baking instructions are also outlined in the post.
  • If using store bought pastry, follow the instructions on the package.

Quiche

  • Turn down the oven to 375 F degrees.
  • In a skillet melt the butter then add the leeks and saute for 3 minutes or until tender. Cool slightly.
  • In a large bowl add the eggs, cream, salt, pepper, bacon, 1 cup of the cheese and whisk everything together.
  • Scatter the leeks over the bottom of the baked quiche crust. Pour the egg mixture over then top with remaining 1/2 cup of cheese. 
  • Bake for 35 minutes or until the centre is completely set. Let cool for about 10 minutes before slicing and serving.

Notes

Use my pie crust recipe to make your own quiche crust. Note that the recipe yields pie crust for top and bottom so cut the recipe in half if you only want to make one quiche, otherwise you can make 2 quiches or freeze the other half.
