  • 1
    1 prepared Pie Crust
    Preheat oven to 375F. Line a tart pan with the prepared pie crust and set on a baking sheet. Line with a piece of parchment and top with baking beans. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and carefully remove beans and parchment. Set aside to cool.
  • 2
    1 pound New Potatoes (peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes)
    Put potatoes in a medium sauce pot and cover by 2 inches of water. Bring to a boil and cook over medium heat for 8 minutes or until potatoes are fork tender. Drain and set aside to cool.
  • 3
    Olive Oil
    1 large Leek
    2 springs Thyme (leaves pulled)
    Meanwhile, heat a medium non-stick pan with a few tablespoons of olive oil, add the leeks and saute for 3 to 4 minutes, or until translucent and crisp in parts. Add the thyme and cook until fragrant. Remove with a slotted spoon to the paper towel lined plate.
  • 4
    6 Eggs
    3/4 cup Whole Milk
    Salt and freshly cracked Black Pepper
    4 ounces Gruyere Cheese (grated)
    In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk and season with salt and pepper. Stir in the potatoes and leeks along with the grated cheese. Pour into the cooled tart shell and bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until eggs are set in the center and the crust is golden. Cool for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.

    Helpful Tips:
    1. Rinse your leeks thoroughly to remove any sand or dirt.
    2. You can easily make this recipe with a store bought pie crust, so no need to prepare one from scratch.
