Ingredients

  • 2 9-inch ready-to-bake pie crusts
  • 2 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 leek halved lengthwise and thinly sliced (white and light green parts only)
  • 8 oz. cherry or grape tomatoes halved
  • 1/4 cup flat-leaf parsley chopped
  • 8 oz. sliced fresh mushrooms chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese shredded
  • 8 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups milk

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Unroll the pie crusts and press into two 9-inch pie plates. Poke plenty of holes into the surface of the dough with a fork. Bake in preheated oven for 15 minutes, or until lightly browned. Decrease oven temperature to 350 degrees F.
  • Heat the olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add leeks and cook until soft, 3 to 5 minutes. In a medium bowl, combine the leeks, tomatoes, parsley, mushrooms, salt and pepper. Add the cheese and mix well. Divide the mixture between the two pie plates.
  • In another medium bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk. Divide between the two pie plates and pour over the top of the veggie-cheese mixture. Bake in the preheated oven for 50 minutes, or until eggs are cooked through. Let cool for 20 minutes.
