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:

Steps to make Bacon and Leek Deep-Dish Quiche


Roll out dough


Place the chilled dough between 2 large pieces of parchment paper and roll it out into a 16-inch circle. Place the dough circle in a 9-inch springform pan, and press it into the bottom and around the sides of the pan. Place in the refrigerator for 1 hour to chill.


Prick the pie crust


Using a fork, prick the bottom and sides of the pie crust all over. Line the crust with non stick foil. Leave a 4-inch overhang and fill the crust with baking beans. Chill again for 20 minutes.


Heat the oven


Preheat the oven to 425 °F.


Bake the crust


Bake the crust initially for 15 minutes. Remove foil and baking beans and cover the edges with foil to ensure they don’t brown. Return to the oven and bake for a further 8 - 12 minutes. until it is a light golden color. Remove from the oven and leave to cool.


Reduce heat


Reduce the heat of the oven to 325 °F.


Cook bacon


Place 6 chopped slices of bacon in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook while stirring occasionally, until the bacon is crisp. Transfer cooked bacon to a plate lined with a paper towel.


Sauté leeks


Remove most of the bacon drippings from the pan, but leave 2 tablespoons. Add 2 large sliced leeks to the skillet and season with salt and pepper. Sauté gently for 6-7 minutes until soft.


Add thyme and remove from heat


Add 2 teaspoons of fresh thyme leaves and continue sautéing for 1 minute. Remove from heat and leave to cool.


Make the filling


Whisk 6 large eggs, 2 cups of cream, 1 cup of milk, 1 tablespoon of mustard, ⅛ teaspoon of nutmeg, and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper together in a bowl. Mix in the Gruyère, parsley, and cooked leeks.


Add filling to the pie crust


Scatter the cooked crispy bacon on the bottom of the baked crust. Pour the egg mixture on top.




Bake the quiche until just the egg filling is just set around the edges but still slightly wobbly in the center. A knife inserted into the center should come out with no trace of runny eggs attached. Cooking time is around 1 hour and 15 minutes to 1 hour and 30 minutes.



Serve warm.

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!
