Emeril's One-Pot Blogger Party: Leek and Bacon Quiche in a Potato Crust

This Emeril Blogger Party is winding down but it's not over yet! After this post I'll have one more dish to share. I'm making it tomorrow and it's something that I've never tried cooking before! Stay tuned.

One of my favorite things to make is quiche. There are so many variations and they pretty much always turn out delicious. I've never quite made it like Emeril though. Instead of the pastry crust that I typically use, this recipe has you grate potato's, mix them together with some egg and spices and then press it into the bottom of a spring form pan. It's partially baked before the rest of the filling is added.

The filling is a combination of eggs of course, cream, sour cream, caramelized leeks, cheese and thyme. Did I forget bacon? Yeah, there's bacon. I don't think you're allowed to make quiche without bacon, right? It's then all baked until just barely set. I loved the flavor of the leeks and the potato crust was a fun addition I think I'll use again.

You still have a few more chances to win a copy of the book for yourselves! Just leave a comment below or on any other Emeril post. One entry for every post you comment on!

If you haven't "liked" my facebook page or followed me on twitter yet, come join in the fun!

{Disclaimer: As part of this blogger party I received a free copy of the cookbook, a set of Emeril by Zak Table Art, a bottle of Emeril's Essence Spice mix and will receive a small grocery stipend and other Emeril cookbooks following the event. All opinions expressed are my own.}


  1. That potato crust is a genius idea. So many people are pastry-phobic. I think I need to borrow the idea for some other recipes.

  2. With Homepage learned going into day two, the teams fight hard for every dollar while up against established food trucks at Trinity Bellwoods Park.

  3. Always i follow Thymeinourkitchen and i get most of information about kitchen cookware. Quiche is delicious food and i also try sometimes.Once upon a time i make this cake with greenlife cookware.
