Homemade quiches are so much nicer than store bought.

Very tasty. Even though the crust is very crumbly, I would recommend using it, as opposed to a plain crust, because the butter and lemon juice really add to the overall flavor. I didn't have a leek, so used 1/2 of a mild onion and it worked fine. Reheats very well in the microwave - just don't overdo it.
