    1. Preheat oven to 200 C / Gas 6. Prick pastry case all over with a fork; place on a baking tray.
    2. Bake in the preheated oven until lightly golden, about 15 minutes. Remove pastry case and set aside to cool slightly; reduce oven temperature to 190 C / Gas 5.
    3. Bring a large pot of water to the boil and simmer leeks just until tender, about 7 minutes; drain thoroughly.
    4. Whisk eggs, cream, milk, chives, nutmeg, salt and black pepper together in a bowl. Spread leeks evenly over bottom of pastry case; dot with goat cheese. Pour egg mixture over leeks.
    5. Bake in the preheated oven until puffed, lightly browned, and a sharp knife inserted near the centre comes out clean, 40 to 50 minutes. Remove to cool until warm or room temperature before serving.

    This was really tasty! I didn't have any goat cheese so subbed queso fresco. I will definitely make this again!  -  24 Feb 2019  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I love the recipe but my crust was almost burnt after baking the filling. Next time I will prebake the crust for less time.  -  25 May 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I have a B&B and made this because I had goat cheese on hand. I added bacon. Everyone loved this quiche!  -  21 May 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
