Add all
  • 3

    leeks (whites only)

  • 2 Tbsp.
    (30 mL)

    butter

  • 3

    omega-3 eggs

  • 8 oz
    (250 g)

    basic pastry dough

  • 1/2 cup
    (125 mL)

    milk

  • 1/2 cup
    (125 mL)

    35 % cream

  • 1 pinch

    ground nutmeg

  • 3 1/2 oz
    (100 g)

    grated cheese, emmental or gruyere

  • To taste salt and pepper

Preparation

Wash and slice the leeks. Cook them gently in a small pan with butter and season as needed.

Cook, covered, for 10 to 15 minutes on low heat without browning. If necessary, add water to prevent the leeks from sticking to the bottom. Let them cool.

Roll out the dough and line the quiche mould.

In a bowl, whisk together milk, cream, ground nutmeg, and eggs. Season with salt and pepper.

Garnish the pastry with leeks and cheese, then pour in the mixture.

Bake, on the bottom rack, in a pre-heated 400°F (200°C) oven for 15 minutes.

Reduce the temperature to 350°F (180°C) and finish baking for 10 to 15 minutes.

Serve hot.

Egg mixture should be cold when poured into the shell.
