Leek Gruyere Quiche



Ingredients :

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 5 tablespoons cold unsalted butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 tablespoon cold water
  • or as needed
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 leeks
  • white parts only
  • thinly sliced
  • 4 eggs
  • 9 ounces creme fraiche
  • ¾ cup grated Gruyere cheese
  • ½ cup grated Emmentaler cheese
  • ⅓ cup cubed fully cooked ham
  • freshly ground white pepper
  • 1 pinch ground nutmeg
  • Methods :

  • Combine flour, butter, 1 egg, and salt in a bowl. Knead together with your hands, adding as much water as needed, in small amounts, to create a smooth dough. Shape dough into a ball, flatten, and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a 10-inch springform pan.
  • Heat olive oil in a skillet and cook leeks over medium heat until translucent, about 5 minutes.
  • Remove dough from fridge. Dust a work surface with flour and roll out dough into a circle about 1 inch larger than the springform pan. Fold carefully in half, lift up, and unfold over the pan. Press over the bottom and 1 inch up the sides.
  • Whisk 4 eggs and creme fraiche in a bowl. Stir in leeks, Gruyere cheese, Emmentaler cheese, and ham. Season with white pepper and nutmeg. Pour over the crust and spread evenly with the back of a spoon.
  • Bake in the preheated oven until filling is set, about 30 minutes.
