Step By Step  

Forget the lettuce ... this BLT stands for bacon, LEEK, and tomato!

As prepared by Daring Gourmet,

Salty bacon, buttery leek and fire-roasted tomatoes topped off with savory cheese...this is one finger-lickin' quiche! 

I've come to realize something. Most people love a good quiche but rarely make it themselves. Why is that? It looks too time-consuming? Too difficult? They don't own an official "quiche pan" and think they can't make quiche without it? Whatever the reason, it's time to de-bunk a few myths.

1)  Prep time is like 10 minutes max. That = quick!

2)  You slap down some premade Pillsbury pie crust (p-p-p...it's all about the "p's", baby), chop up a leek, fry a little bacon, beat a few eggs, open up a can of tomatoes, shred a little cheese, and slide it in the oven. That = easy!

3)  Everyone owns a pie pan. That = you can make quiche, too! 

 So all that = quick, easy and accessible. And did I already mention this is a BLT-packed quiche?

Let's not waste any more time!
