This leek quiche recipe is one that has been handed from person to person and handed to us from my grandmother. Sharing recipes between friends is a great way to try something you know is going to taste great.
A quiche is savoury round open topped pie. The word 'quiche' also somehow translates into 'cake', which is sort of what it looks like, a savoury cake.
This classic dish can be served warm as a side dish or enjoyed as a snack throughout the day. Cold quiches are great for picnics or lunch boxes too.
Serves 6 children or 3 adults
