New Recipe Wednesday

I got this recipe from my mom. I don't know where it's from originally. So easy to make, and sooo good.

Leek and Bacon Quiche


  • 9 inch pie crust
  • butter or olive oil
  • 1 leek, thinly sliced
  • 4 slices of bacon, chopped
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tbs. dijon mustard
  • 1 cup Gruyere cheese, shredded
  • 5 tbs. heavy cream


  • Saute the bacon and leeks in a little butter or olive oil. (Start the bacon first so it gets a bit browned and the leeks don't burn.)

  • Whisk eggs, mustard, cream. Add cheese.
  • Add bacon and leeks to mixture and pour into pie shell. (I put my pie crust into a quiche pan with a removable bottom for easy removal, but any pie dish would be fine.)
  • Bake at 325 degrees for 20-25 minutes.


  1. I would have never thought to throw a leek in there (I'm honestly not sure if I've ever had a leek?). Looks yummy, we'll have to try it!

  2. I've never cooked with leeks before, but this looks yummy!

  3. Bacon and leeks both sounds and looks so yummy together...mmm

  4. Adding on to my previous comment: Today is Good Friday and as I was looking online for a quiche recipie I remembered yours. It's on the table tonight for sure - thank you!
