Leek and Pancetta Quiche

catamaran guru broker christine shows off her leek and pancetta quiche

Christine Buttigieg, one of our yacht brokers, is not only an avid sailor and experienced in many facets of the boat industry, but also superbly skilled in the galley.

She shared a divine lee, and pancetta quiche with us recently. After one bite, we knew we had to get the recipe out to our readers. It is perfect for the fanciest brunch, easy enough for everyday breakfast, and the reheats deliciously for time-saving leftover lunch.

Let us know in the comments below if you give this one a try! Especially if you added your own touch with an extra ingredient or two.
