Deep leek and potato quiche


Deep leek and potato quiche
The French make a "tourte" that is smaller and deeper than a normal quiche. This recipe makes the most of this difference: it has plenty of texture and flavour, with bacon, potatoes, leeks, two different cheeses, and an egg and cream filling poured over.

We'll be using a deep 8 inch (20 cm) dessert ring, rather than a tin or mould for this quiche.

Roll out 300 g Shortcrust pastry (pâte brisée) to the size of the ring + the height of the sides.

Stage 2 - 3 min.

Line the ring with the pastry, leaving the excess hanging over the edge, and put to wait in the fridge.

Stage 3 - 4 min.

Remarks
If spring onions are out of season, use a normal onion. In this case, add a touch of green, if possible, with some chopped parsley at stage 10.

For the two cheeses, if you don't have Comté or Cheddar, use another cheese of your choice, but preferably a hard-paste type, with a strong flavour, such as Parmesan or mature mimolette.
Keeping
A day or two ing the fridge, covered with plastic film.
