Pioneer Woman's Cowgirl Quiche

Sherry Blizzard


Mom and I are cooking one different recipe each week from The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Food From My Frontier cookbook and reporting out. If they are good, we will post them and if we don't like them we will not.

I love quiche and needed to use some leeks that I had leftover that needed to be cooked so this was a perfect recipe to use that up.

There is just something magical that happens when you combine mushrooms, leeks and prosciutto!

If you don't have this cookbook, I highly suggest you get one. Her recipes are practical and delicious. I liked this one and think you will too.

How to Make Pioneer Woman's Cowgirl Quiche


  • 1Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • 2Place quartered mushrooms on a baking sheet and roast for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.
  • 3Finely chop the cleaned leeks. Saute them over medium heat in butter for 8-10 minutes (or until they begin to brown slightly and caramelize).
  • 4In a bowl, whisk the eggs and cream together, stir in the cooled mushrooms, leeks, cheese, prosciutto, salt and pepper
  • 5Pour into a pie shell, cover loosely with foil and bake for 45 minutes at 400. Remove the foil and continue baking for an additional 10 minutes.

    (*a variation she provides but I didn't do includes stirring in 2 tablespoons of Pesto into the quiche mixture before baking.)
