Northwoods Quiche with Morels


  • 9-inch unbaked pie crust
  • 1 cup grated Colby cheese (or substitute a white cheese such as Swiss or provolone)
  • 2 slices diced bacon
  • 1/2 to 1 cup of morels
  • 2 to 4 leeks
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 cups milk


Sauté the bacon and set aside. Sauté cleaned and diced leeks and morels. Arrange the crust in the pie pan and line with cheese, then layer bacon, morels and leeks. In a bowl, lightly beat eggs and milk, then pour into pie shell. Bake at 375º about 40 minutes or until firm and golden brown. Tip: place a strip of aluminum foil over edge of exposed crust to prevent it from burning.
