Ingredients
  

  • 1 pâte brisée (pie crust)
  • 4 strips of bacon
  • 1 leek
  • 1 onion
  • 3 eggs
  • 150 ml heavy cream
  • grated Parmesan cheese
  • Swiss Cheese shredded
  • salt, pepper, nutmeg

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven at 380F.
  • Unroll the pie crust and precisely fit it in a pie pan. Poke the dough all over with a fork. Then put the pie in the fridge.
  • Cut the root of the leek, remove any ragged, coarse outer leaves and discard. Slice lengthwise but not completely to hold the leek together. Rinse under running cold water while separating leaves until the leaves are completely clean. Cut the leek finely. You may rinse again in water.
  • Put the bacon in a frying pan over medium heat. When the bacon is lightly brown, put aside on a paper towel to remove all the fat.
  • In the frying pan, put the onion, leek, salt and pepper. Let it cook until tender. Add some water if they tend to burn.
  • Take out the pie crust from the fridge. Sprinkle some Parmesan. Add evenly the bacon, then the onions with leeks. Put some Swiss cheese.
  • In a bowl, whisk the eggs with the heavy cream, salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Pour into the pie.
  • Bake for about 25-30 min.
  • Once the pie is baked, remove from the oven and enjoy with a salad.
