Ingredients:

1 pound leeks
2 tablespoons butter
2 eggs
1 cup heavy cream
1 dash nutmeg
1 dash cayenne pepper
salt and pepper
1 cup shredded Piave cheese
Directions:
Trim the leeks, cut into 1” pieces and wash well. Sauté in one tablespoon of butter until tender.
Beat the eggs with the cream and spices. Cut the pie crust into four circles, each 4 inches in
diameter. Gently fit them into four sections of a muffin pan. Flute the top edges. Add some
leeks and cheese to each cup. Ladle enough of the egg/cream mixture to just cover the leeks
and cheese. Bake at 425 degrees for 15 minutes then lower the heat to 350 until the quiches

have puffed and are lightly browned on top.
