Leek and Cheese Flan

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by mary winecoff

My parents were world travelers and picked up this recipe in Scotland. It is one of my father's favorite recipes. Flan is kinda like a quiche. It initially called for a traditional shortbread pastry but I use pre-made pie crusts with the same result.
