Leek Pie

Handy because it doesn’t require making a separate crust.  I haven’t tried yet, but zucchini, yellow squash or other vegetables could be substituted for leeks.

Leek Pie

3 – 4 large leeks, sliced thinly (upper dark green stalks removed)
3 large eggs
1 ½ cups of milk
1 cup Swiss cheese, grated or small dice
1 cup whole wheat flour
½ cup olive oil
¼ cup fresh green onion, finely chopped
1 teaspoon dried oregano
salt

Sauté the leeks for about 5 minutes, then add the fresh green onion and continue until tender (another 3 minutes or so).

In a large bowl, beat the eggs well and then add the milk, flour, oregano, salt and pepper.

Pour the mixture into a pie pan greased with olive oil and add the leeks and cheese.

Bake for 40 minutes at 350°F.

Allow to cool before cutting.  Can be served warm or at room temperature.  Refrigerates and rewarms well.
