Tarte aux Poireaux - Leek Pie

Leek Pie
Similar to onion pie, the leeks are gently sauté until tender and soft before cooking in the pie.


1 ready made pie crust
2 lb. leeks (5-6 medium leeks)
1 ½ tablespoons olive oil, extra virgin
2 eggs or 4 egg whites
½ cup milk, any kind
¾ cup grated Swiss or other mild, white cheese
salt and pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 375°. In a large skillet, sauté leeks in olive oil for 20-25 minutes over medium heat, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking.

While leeks are cooking, combine eggs, milk cheese, salt and pepper; Whisk together until smooth. Set aside.

When leeks are ready, spread pie crust out in pie dish, add leeks, pour egg mixture overtop and bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown on top.

Let cool slightly before serving.
