Quiche Leekraine


As the name suggests, the main ingredient in this Quiche Leekraine is the humble leek! I love leeks – they are such a versatile ingredient. Their mild onion-like flavor makes them the perfect ingredient for a quiche with strong salty bacon and a rich cheesy, eggy filling.

Start by sautéing leeks in olive oil and fry some streaky bacon until crispy. Make the quiche filling by whisking eggs and adding cheese, milk, leek and bacon. Pour the filling into a pre-cooked pastry crust and bake in the oven until golden on top. Serve with a fresh green salad and you have a delicious lunch in under an hour.

To make Quiche Leekraine, you will need the following ingredients:

Steps to make Quiche Leekraine


Heat oven


Preheat the oven to 355 °F.


Sauté leeks


Sauté 300 grams of sliced leek in a skillet with olive oil over medium heat. Stir occasionally until the leeks have softened.


Fry bacon


In a separate pan, fry 3 slices of bacon until crispy.


Make egg mixture


In a medium sized bowl, whisk 3 large eggs. Add 75 grams of Cheddar cheese, 250 ml of milk and stir through the cooked leek and bacon. Season with salt and black pepper to taste.


Pour mixture into crust


Place a pre-cooked pastry crust onto a baking sheet and pour in the egg mixture.




Bake in the oven for 25-30 minutes until the egg filling is golden on top and cooked through.



Serve with a fresh, crisp green salad.

Why am I not surprised that Jelena made this? Her ideas are the BEST I can't wait to see what else you come up with.

Anne Rolader

Needed a bit more seasoning on my end and even a tadd of hot sauce dabbed on top but other than that it's a fantastic idea.
