How to make it

  • . Heat a large sauté pan over low heat.
  • Sauté the leeks and onions in the olive oil 30 to 40 minutes until caramelized, occasionally stirring.
  • Remove from heat and cool.
  • . Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the flour, cornstarch and one-fourth teaspoon salt.
  • Cut the butter in with a pastry blender, fork or two knives until it is in very tiny bits.
  • Add one egg (a fork works great for this) and mix it until a dough forms.
  • (Dough can also be made in a food processor, or in in a stand mixer.)
  • . On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to a 12-inch circle.
  • Place the dough in a 9-inch pie plate and press to remove any air bubbles.
  • Crimp the edges, and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • . While the quiche shell chills, mix the heavy cream and sour cream in a medium bowl.
  • Whisk in the remaining three eggs.
  • Add a pinch each nutmeg, salt and pepper and combine to form a batter.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • . Remove the quiche shell from the refrigerator and spread the leek and onion mixture evenly over the base.
  • Sprinkle the ham and then the cheese over the leeks and onions.
  • Pour in the batter and place the quiche in the oven.
  • . Bake until puffed and golden, about 25 to 30 minutes or puffed and golden
  • . Remove from the oven and cool slightly on a rack.
  • Serve warm or at room temperature.
