Leek and bacon quiche

Quiche is one of most versatile starter in kitchen as any filling can be added to it ( fish , meat , cheese, vegetable….) but bacon and cheese is my all time favorite. I decided to add leek to the recipe because my fiancee’s father brought me some vegetables from his father’s garden . For vegetarian friends bacon can be removed from the recipe but unfortunately , since eggs is the base of the filling , it is not vegan friendly , sorry guys. For this post i did not make my own pastry as i was cooking between two shifts and had no time to make it but feel free to make the pastry  from scratch.
