    Tomboy's Note:

    This is a great luncheon or light dinner recipe! The pie crust made from bread works really well and is much easier than pastry. I think it originally came from the Australian Womans Weekly. I've been making it for years. Serve it with a tossed green salad and some chips (fries)on the side.

      Tomboy, as soon as I read this recipe I said I had to try it and I did last night. MMMmmm I love leeks and this is a great recipe. I did the recipe in individual oven proof (can't think of the word I want) bowls and they looked lovely sitting in front of each persons place. I added pepper & 1 jalapeno to the recipe. Served with a salad and crusty rolls Thank-you

      This is in the oven as we speak, I have a good feeling about it. Love the bread crust idea. I only had white so hopefully it will taste ok. Wanted to make a quiche but was too lazy to make a pie crust.
