    The custard part of this was delicious, I used three leeks and it was too much leek but that’s on me. I would make this again.

    This is easily the best thing I’ve ever baked. Thank you for this wonderful recipe

    Did it without the crust and with whole milk instead of cream for a healthier option and turned out great!
    Great! I mixed Parmesan and gruyere.. it was incredibly easy and delicious!

    Delicious. I have made this three times. And when I don’t have a pie base, I just fry it all gently in a non-stick frypan. Heavenly.

    I loved it. As a matter of fact I’ve got one in the oven right now. This is by far one of the best recipes I’ve ever tasted. I’ve been making 1 to 2 a week. I live alone, so that’s a lot of quiche for one person.
    Delicious and so creamy. I have made it with a variety of vegetables, cheeses, and meats, too. The 4 eggs, parm cheese, and heavy cream base work for any quiche variety. Baked the pie crust first and then using a pie ring once the filling is added works perfectly. Thank you so much for sharing this perfect recipe!!

    I want to completely love this recipe but ultimately it came out just so so. The crust seemed to burn for the recommended amount of cook time yet the filling didn't seem quite as set as it should have been. I tried to make it a second time with similar results...almost delish but something a little off.

    Have made this 4 times, and it is awesome! Pre-baking the crust is a must. Tempting to add stuff, but as is, the filling almost spills over the edge. However I have added shredded baby spinach along with the leeks and that was fine. Will make it again an again.
