    Columbus Foodie's Note:

    The recipe is from America’s Test Kitchen, with some minor modifications made by me (highlighted in italics). Goat cheese should be fairly easy to find in any decent supermarket. I found the best value for it at a warehouse club, where they were charging less for a pound of it than a normal grocery store charged for half the amount. Make sure to wash leeks thoroughly, as they can be gritty.

      Nice one. I replaced the goats cheese with Feta because I have to be in the mood for goats cheese and also I always have feta in the fridge because it has such a long shelf life. Yummy.

      Delicious quiche! I changed a couple of things to reduce the fat slightly: I used a 3rd egg instead of the 2 yolks, and I replaced 1/4 cup of the heavy cream with half-n-half. For the crust I used Pastry Crust (Pie Crust). Thanks for posting!

      I made this quiche this weekend, and it was excellent. I use Pillsbury rolled pie crust, and just put it in the oven for a bit to heat first.. dont forget the pie weights like I did.
