Leek, Ham and Mushroom Quiche

"Another great way to get veggies into the kids! This quiche is mild, but very flavorful. It reheats well for lunch too if you manage to have any left over. The amount of eggs needed is depeendent on how much filling you end up with and how large and deep your pie dish is."

  1. This quiche was wonderful Chrissy, thank you so much for sharing, we enjoyed it very much. I only made a half the recipe, it was perfect for two with leftovers for lunch. The quiche was very quick and easy to make, with great texture and amazing flavours. It was big, tall and filling, just full of ham, cheese and lots of vegetables. I will certainly make again.
     
  2. Excellent quiche! If you are not using a deep dish pie crust, you will need 2 frzn crusts. YUM!
     
  3. Amazing quiche, the best I've ever had! I made this for an "Anti-Thanksgiving Thanksgiving" party and it was such a hit. I substituded about 4 slices thick-cut bacon, chopped, for ham and sauteed it with the leeks and mushrooms. This also made two quiches for me (luckily I had two crusts) for some reason. However that was great because everyone devoured them.
     
  4. FABULOUS Quiche! I recently bought a nice deep pie dish and this was perfect! Andy had 2 pieces and I had one and we still only ate about 1/3 of the pie! (It's nice and big!) I had no leeks, so I sweated one medium cooking onion. It was still great! Thanks Chrissy T!
     
  5. I wish I can give this more than 5 stars! This was AWESOME! Everyone enjoyed this very hearty quiche. The leeks, mushrooms, and combo of cheeses blended beautifully! Thanks for posting Chef Chrissy T!

I live in a beautiful seaside town in Massachusetts with my husband, 2 daughters and 2 cats. When not experimenting in the kitchen, I'm writing steampunk romance (Not sure what that is? Check out my website!). Recently agented, I hope to see my books in print soon. Can't wait! <img src="http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/454328/zaar%20photo.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> Amelia (2 y.o. here) enjoying a cider donut after apple picking. <img src="http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/454328/zaar%202.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> Maeve (4 y. o. here) I love cooking and can't resist trying to figure out what ingredients went into a good meal. I'm not really one for measuring, and usually just make things up as I go along. My brain tends to shut down at the sight of too many ingredients in a recipe (must be A.D.D. or something) so that's something I'm trying to work on. Most of my recipes are quick and easy to make, since I'm usually trying to get dinner out in a hurry. My family is Greek and my husband is Irish, but also lived in Spain for several years, so my cooking tends to reflect those cultures, but in general we're fairly adventurous. Feel free to zmail me!

Update: Just got a new camera, so hopefully my pictures will improve drastically. I had been using the camera on my cell. Needless to say the pics weren't great. I'll try retaking any that I've already posted. http://www.theanimalrescuesite.com/cgi-bin/WebObjects/CTDSites.woa
