Bacon, Egg, Cheese, Leek Quiche and Easy Salad

When this post goes live, I will be landing back in Charlotte on a red eye from Vegas.  I've been in southern Utah and a little Vegas since Monday afternoon.  I plan to share some pictures on Friday!

--------------------------

This is such an easy weeknight meal and yall know that if I'm saying it, then it is.  But, it does take prep ahead of time.  In my case, I made the whole thing the night before.  All we had to do was reheat and then I added a salad.  I'm sure it's better freshly out of the oven but that ain't happening in my world these days.  Anyway, these are both recipes from my chef friend Ashley! 

First the quiche before it went in the oven...

Baked...maybe a little too long.  Ha!

Here is the finished product...Molly Anne's plate...

The salad on the side with dressing in front of it... (recipe below - amazing!)

yum.



Bacon, Egg, Cheese and Leek Quiche:
Crust - I just used a premade Pillsbury one - prepared per the instructions on the box -- aka cooked.
Filling:
3/4 Pound Bacon, cooked and chopped - I used the pre-cooked Boars Head and heated it prior to chopping
3 small leeks, chopped
2 tablespoons butter
salt and pepper
3/4 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup milk (any kind)
6 large eggs
8 ounces Boars Head Gruyere cheese, shredded
Salt - pinch
1/4 teaspoon pepper

Simple Directions;
1.  Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
2.  Roll the crust into a pie plate and press along the edges.  Poke with fork and cook according to instructions on the box.
3.  Heat butter and saute leeks with salt and pepper until they are softened.  
4.  In a large bowl, whisk together the milk, cream, eggs.  Add leeks, bacon, cheese, salt & pepper and pour into cooled crust.  
5.  Bake the quiche for 40 minutes.  


And serve it with this simple salad!

I used green leaf lettuce and added a farmer's market tomato, cucumber, red onion and used the above recipe for dressing.  For the dressing I combined everything into this container (that Ashley actually gave me and I used several times just last week!) and poured into onto the salad.

How's that for a super easy dinner?!
