Bacon and Leek Quiche

Breakfast for dinner is one of my favorites!
I remember loving having it as a kid
and I still do today as an adult!

Because of that, I recently made quiche for dinner!
Quiche is amazing any time of the day,
but I love to have it in the evening with a nice fresh salad.

Yum! I'm getting hungry just thinking about this.
And I may just have to make it again soon!
Until then - let me show you how it's made.

The Goods:
Colby Jack Cheese
Pie Crust

Dice up your bacon and cook it in a skillet.

Drain a little of the bacon fat from the skillet,
then add your chopped leek and saute.

You can either make your own pie crust,
or be like me and buy the pre-made kind.
Either way - make sure you have pie crust!

Crack 6 eggs, plus 2 more egg whites into a mixing bowl.
Add about a cup of milk and some salt and pepper.

Then mix it up with a fork .

Add your bacon, sauteed leeks and half of your cheese.

And here's where I confess to my blogger fail.
I completely forgot to take a picture of the quiche before baking.
I'm sorry...forgive me?

Anyway - bake your quiche at 375 degrees until fully cooked.
For me that was about 40 minutes, but my oven seems to be extra hot!

Take your quiche out of the oven...

And add the rest of your cheese.
Return the quiche to the oven for a minute or two,
just enough time for the cheese to fully melt!

Remove from the oven and let sit for about 5 minutes before cutting.

Now time to dig in and enjoy with a fresh salad as I previously mentioned!
