Let's Make It
Preheat oven to 375°F. Heat oil in large skillet on medium heat. Add leeks; cook and stir 8 to 10 min. or until tender. Stir in ham. Remove from heat; set aside.
Prepare pie crust as directed on package for unfilled 1-crust pie using 9-inch pie plate. Sprinkle half of the cheese evenly onto bottom of crust. Top with leek mixture and remaining cheese. Beat eggs and half-and-half with wire whisk until well blended; pour over ingredients in crust.
Bake 35 to 40 min. or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Let stand 10 min. before serving.
For a delightful brunch idea, serve this indulgent quiche with a seasonal fresh fruit salad.
Leeks are grown in sandy soil and must be washed well before using. To prepare leeks, trim the roots and remove the dark green portions. Only the white portion of the leek is used. Chop or slice the white sections, then rinse in water to remove any soil or sand.
Cover edge of pie crust with strip of foil for the last 15 min. of the baking time to prevent it from browning too much.
