I made stuffed grape leaves for the first time yesterday, with a filling of ground lamb and rice. It turned out really well and didn't take as long as I was expecting. I'll definitely do this again.

Served with homemade pita chips, tzatziki and beans from the garden simmered with a can of diced tomatoes, shallots, garlic and Penzeys Greek Seasoning.

Checking out that recipe CG, I can't imagine a great Quiche with only..
Quote:
1/4 cup finely shredded Gruyère cheese
It has to be a typo as any recipe I've seen calls for at least 4x that amount of cheese.

I keep trying to justify my purchase of a quiche pan from back in the 1970s.

Before or after I put the pie weighs into the pan?

A number of things were off. I'll probably try this recipe again except:
1) I'll reduce the leeks to 2 cups
2) I'll decrease the cream to 1 1/4 cups and add another egg (total 4 eggs)
3) I'll definitely up the cheese (I think I actually used over 1/2 cup anyway)
4) Maybe I'll just buy the pre-made ones at the grocery store and give my pan to Salvation Army.

Pie weights? I've never used pie weights. Just prick the bottom with a fork, brush it with beaten egg and bake.

Used some Beyond Beef crumbles seasoned with bulgogi sauce to make sloppy joes. It was tasty but did not look so good. Still working on the recipe. Also had a salad it did look good.
