French Quiche with Leeks Recipe (Including How to Make the Crust)

French Quiche with Leeks - Result | kipkitchen.com

When’s the last time you had a French quiche? Jokes aside, I cook quiches quite often. You can use different fillings based on your preferences, and the French quiche with leeks is my favorite.

Why? Because it’s easy to cook, tasty and big enough to have 4 servings. Which means that after dinner, you can have leftovers for the next day.

Years ago (nope, not saying how many), my dad taught me how to cook a quiche Lorraine. Since then, I’ve looked out for other variants.

For example, there’s one with goat cheese and cherry tomatoes, which you’d love if you’re a fan of goat cheese.

Another one is from my hometown, the North of France. It’s topped with a local cheese, and the challenge is to get rid of the cheese smell in the house after eating.

Try the recipe below, you can get a pastry roll or make the crust yourself, it’s up to you!

You’ll see (or taste) that leeks and bacon are a great match. And the crispy crust, fresh from the oven, is heavenly.

You’ll need:

Step 1

Cut the butter into cubes.

Pour the flour into a mixing bowl, add a pinch of salt and the butter cubes. Mix with your fingers until you get a sandy mixture.

Then break the egg on top of the bowl and mix again with your fingers. When it’s homogeneous, form a ball and put it in the fridge.

Cut both ends of the leeks and wash them.

Split the leeks into two and slice them.

On medium fire, pour 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a pan and add the leeks. Turn down to low fire and fry the leeks for about 10-12 minutes. Stir often.
