1 9-inch quiche


  • 1 (9 inch) frozen single pie crust, thawed

  • 3 leeks - white and light green parts only, halved lengthwise, and sliced

  • 3 eggs

  • ½ cup heavy whipping cream

  • ½ cup milk

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives

  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 2 ounces soft goat cheese, crumbled


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Prick pie crust all over with a fork; place on a baking sheet.

  2. Bake in the preheated oven until lightly golden, about 15 minutes. Remove crust and set aside to cool slightly; reduce oven temperature to 375 degrees (190 degrees C).

  3. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and simmer leeks just until tender, about 7 minutes; drain thoroughly.

  4. Whisk eggs, heavy cream, milk, chives, nutmeg, salt, and black pepper together in a bowl. Spread leeks evenly over bottom of pie crust; dot with goat cheese. Pour egg mixture over leeks.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven until puffed, lightly browned, and a sharp knife inserted near the center comes out clean, 40 to 50 minutes. Remove to cool until warm or room temperature before serving.
