For the crust

  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter cold, cubed
  • 6 tablespoons ice cold water

For the filling

  • 3 strips bacon
  • 2 medium leeks thinly sliced
  • 8 large eggs
  • 1 cup gouda shredded
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper


  • Add the strips of bacon to a skillet and cook until crispy. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towel. In the same skillet, add the sliced leeks and cook them in the bacon grease until tender. Set them aside and let cool.
  • Preheat oven to 375F. To make crust, add flour and salt in food processor. Add cold butter and pulse until it resembles coarse meal. Add 6 tablespoons of ice cold water and pulse a few times. The dough should be beginning to clump together. Turn it out onto a floured surface and knead into a ball. Flatten down into a disk and using a floured rolling pin, roll it out to be slightly larger than your pie dish.
  • Carefully transfer onto pie plate and trim any excess dough. Pierce with a fork (or line with parchment paper and weigh down with pie weights) and place in the oven to blind bake for about 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, chop the bacon into small pieces. In a large bowl, combine the bacon, leeks and all the remaining ingredients for the filling.
  • Remove pie crust from the oven and pour filling into it. Put back in the oven and bake for approximately 40 minutes or until set.
