Wales meets France

Had to make some food for a couple of days at the beginning of this week. A quiche is always a good dish for these kind of days. Made a leek quiche, inspired by my last Kookjegek quiche recipe.

What I like about this recipe is it’s simplicity, especially the preparation. When I saw the leeks at the grocery store I instantly knew what to make and which ingredients I needed to get. The taste is also simple but good enough for your average day. A day where Wales meets France.

Leek quiche

Ingredients (serves 4)

2 leeks
500 grams ham
6 sheets of puff pastry
3 eggs
250 ml whipping cream
200 grams old gouda cheese
100 grams gouda cheese
olive oil


Grease a ovenproof dish with some butter. Cover the dish with the sheets of puff pastry. Chop up the leeks and dice the ham. Put the ham and leeks in a frying pan with some olive oil. Heat it until the leeks have shrunk a bit. In the meanwhile you can grate the cheese. Create a mixture of the egg, whipping cream and the grated cheese.

Spread the leeks & ham around the pastry shell. Pour the egg mixture over the ingredients in the pastry shell. Bake the quiche for about 30 minutes in a oven of 200 degrees or until golden brown.
