Real Men Don’t Eat Quiche was a popular humor book in the 1980s, but the sentiment is all wrong. You can make a quiche as rich and “manly” as you’d like, or as light and delicate. You can fill a thin whole-wheat crust with vegetables, herbs and milk or a thick, buttery crust with meat, cheese and cream. In fact, Marie Simmons, author of The Good Egg, calls classic quiche Lorraine “the finest form that bacon-and-eggs can assume.” Here's a version of quiche fit for a hearty appetite.

Quiche CrustlessIngredients: 

1 pound bacon 

1 large leek, white and pale green parts, chopped 

6 whole eggs, lightly beaten 

1 cup cream

I know this will sound strange but I have tortilla crock with lid. I use the base to put my unbaked pastry shell in and pour int he ingredients and bake. I butter the crock first but the shell comes out light and flaky every time it is great.
