Spring Leek Quiche with Chevre

This classic quiche features tender leeks, fresh chives and rich chevre cheese.

Ingredients:
1 single butter pie crust, thawed if frozen (see recipe)
3 leeks, white and light green parts only, halved lengthwise, and sliced
3 eggs
½ cup heavy whipping cream
½ cup milk
2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
2 ounces soft chevre cheese, crumbled

Method:
1. Preheat the oven to 400°. Prick pie crust all over with a fork; place on a baking sheet. Bake the pie crust in the preheated oven until lightly golden, about 15 minutes. Remove crust and set aside to cool slightly; reduce oven temperature to 375°.

2. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and simmer leeks just until tender, about 7 minutes; drain thoroughly.

3. Whisk eggs, heavy cream, milk, chives, nutmeg, salt, and black pepper together in a bowl. Spread leeks evenly over bottom of pie crust; dot with the chevre cheese. Pour egg mixture over leeks. Bake in the preheated oven until puffed, lightly browned, and a sharp knife inserted near the center comes out clean, 40 to 50 minutes. Remove to cool until warm or room temperature before serving.
