I often prepare different snacks, depending on the ingredients in the pantry, as is this tasty Quiche with leeks and cheese .
This quiche with leeks and cheeses is easy to prepare, but just as easily disappears from the plate, so the greedy will make this tart again.
A peculiarity of this French tart, Quiche Lorraine, is the pre-baked top, and as basic ingredients for the filling, eggs, milk and / or sour cream / cheese are used.
It is a very tasty appetizer tart, versatile and easy to prepare.
I let you read the recipe and enjoy a slice virtually!

Quiche ingredients with leeks and cheese:
- it took:
- 125 gr white flour
- 125 gr wholemeal flour
- 125 gr cold butter
- 1 or chicken
- 2-3 lg cold water
- 1 pinch of salt
- 300 gr sour cream
- 300 gr salted cheese mix *

How to prepare Quiche with leeks and cheese:
First prepare the dough because it will be cold for at least half an hour.
In a large bowl, sift the two types of flour, salt and nutmeg powder. (Wholemeal flour gives it a better taste, so I recommend using it).
Add the diced butter and knead until crumbly. Add the beaten egg with cold water and knead until smooth. It should not be kneaded excessively because it will lose its fragility. The dough obtained is wrapped and left to cool for at least half an hour.
Then remove, spread in a thin layer and place in a baking dish. I recommend using a ceramic one, but if you don't have one, you can use another tray.
Once placed in the shape, it is pricked from place to place with a fork. Bake in the preheated oven at 170 degrees C for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, prepare the filling.
In a bowl, add sour cream and eggs, then mix vigorously. Add salt depending on how salty the cheeses are, so pay attention to this aspect.
* I used a mixture of cheeses: cow's cheese, bellows cheese, telemea.
Remove the pre-baked top, sprinkle the cheese on the entire surface of the tart.
The leeks are cleaned and washed, cut into thin slices and placed over the cheeses, as well as the slices of sausage and peas.
Lightly pour the egg mixture with sour cream, then grate a little cheddar.
Bake the tart in the oven at 170 degrees C, baking up and down for 20-25 minutes.
Then remove, leave to cool slightly, then serve with radishes or green onions. It is just as good and cold.
