Leek, mushroom and Gruyere Quiche

I had a lovely birthday party this year with a fabulous cake made by my AlphaBakes co-host Caroline. I'm sure it will feature on her blog soon so make sure you look out for it. I planned to make a quiche as this month's AlphaBakes letter is Q but unfortunately ran out of time so my work colleagues got to enjoy this the week after my birthday. I've never made a quiche before and to be honest, I was quite worried as pastry is not my thing and I'm really not a good cook at all. Fortunately, it turned out well and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. There wasn't a crumb left! 

As mentioned I'm entering this to AlphaBakes hosted by Caroline from Caroline Makes and co-hosted by myself on alternate months. The letter this month is Q for Quiche.

 flour, butter, eggs, cream, leeks, mushroom, cheese

 not too bad... Hope it's not going to have a soggy bottom!!

 First time using my baking beans

 I couldn't resist a slice after it came out of the oven 



  1. just the ultimate collection of ingredients to go into a quiche... pure heaven!

  2. This looks like it turned out really well - even the pastry! We wouldn't have judged you if you had used ready made pastry :-) Thanks for sending this to Alphabakes and have a great holiday!

    1. I'm so behind with my blog comments, I've already had my holiday ha ha. I'm pleased with how it turned out too :)
