    Beat eggs in medium bowl. Add half-and-half; beat well. Add half of the cheese; mix well. Pour over vegetable mixture in baking dish. Sprinkle with remaining half of cheese. Cover with foil; refrigerate at least 8 hours or overnight.
  • 4

Expert Tips

  • The white bulb and light green portion of a leek are its most tender parts. The dark green leaves are usually tough and should be discarded. Sand and dirt hide between the layers of a leek, so rinse sliced leeks until they are free of any residue.
