      I made this using a frozen 9 inch pie crust. I used two leeks instead of one. After assembly, I kept tin foil around the edge of the crust to prevent burning. I really enjoyed this recipe. It is a keeper.

      Big 5 stars. More than 5 would be right. I used bacon, didn't precook crst but did use the big tart pan, only about a third or less of the cheese and all milk and this was still great, it would have to be better if you didn't lighten it up, I'm only writing my changes so I can do them again. I did use quite a bit of leek and I did fry them in the bacon grease and I think that was a good idea for taste. No thyme, but it would be nice too I'm sure.I'm already thinking about how many times I'm going to make this for company and picnics this summer, excellent recipe and pretty.

      I made this for dinner tonight and my hubby says it deserves 6 stars! I did substitute bacon for the pancetta and shredded swiss cheese for the gruyere. It was very rich and flavorful. This recipe is sure to impress anyone that tastes it. Thanks, little_wing!
