Bacon and Leek Deep-Dish Quiche
I love this Bacon and Leek Deep-Dish Quiche. I make it regularly in the summer months for picnics, light lunches or dinners with a fresh green salad on the side. The filling is a rich creamy egg mixture which will make you smile every time you bite into it.
To make the filling, whisk eggs, cream, milk, mustard, nutmeg, salt and pepper in a bowl. Fold in some Gruyère cheese, parsley, and cooked leeks. Scatter some crispy bacon at the bottom of a pre-baked pastry crust and pour in the filling.
To make my Bacon and Leek Deep-Dish Quiche, you will need the following ingredients:

Never thought I'd say this but..this is better than my mothers recipe!! I think I'm in love!
Didn't think it would take so long to cook but it was 100% worth the wait, I'll be cooking this again for Christmas dinner!
A lot of work to make this I don't like the amount of steps but the food was really good so I might make it again.
Anything with bacon is a big yes from me, 5/5 for sure.
Wish I would've made more than just one plate, everyone was asking for thirds at the dinner table,really love this dish.
This is tasty but I highly recommend the Bacon casserole instead, I liked the deep-dish but wasn't too happy about the amount of time spent on it.
I can't get enough of this! It became a favorite of mine along with your Roasted salmon recipe!
Made this today for a picnic with my friends and it's very filling, will be making this again! :)
I cooked this up for my mom and she thought it was store bought! Really good bacon dish, thanks for sharing.
I thought the perfect dish didn't exsist but this is IT! The flavours in this dish are amazing, I followed the recipe to the T and I'm astonished, can not thank you enough for sharing.
One of my favorite dishes on this site so far, keep up the good work.
Woww this was way too good to be true, I shared the recipe with my family right after their first bite! Never got as many compliments as I did with this meal since the last time I made Masabacha!
Delicious quiche! It's perfect for Easter dinner!
