- Set the pie crust into a 9 inch quiche pan or pie pan. Fringe trim if needed.
- Sprinkle cheddar cheese on the bottom of the crust.
- Trim the green part of the leek, and roots. Spill Leek lengthwise. Run under cold water, use your fingers to bend back the layers. Leek super dirty, so did a good job. Save half of the leek for something else (top pizza! Throw in the soup!) Use a sharp knife to cut the Leek in half, making one piece the same size you will be cutting the onion. Sprinkle chopped green onion over the cheese.
