- Prepare and par-bake one 9-inch single-crust pie pastry
- 4 large eggs (7 oz/200g), beaten
- 1 1/2 cups (12 oz/340g) half-and-half, light cream or milk
- 1/4 cup (1.25 oz/35g) sliced green onions, if desired
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
- 3/4 cup (3 oz/85g) chopped cooked ham, chicken or crabmeat
- 1 1/2 cups (6 oz/170g) shredded Swiss, cheddar, Monterey Jack or Colby Cheese
- 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
- Prepare pastry and roll out for a single crust pie. Heat oven to 400°F. Line a 9-inch pie plate with pastry. Trim and crimp edges as desired. Line the pastry with a double thickness of foil. Bake in a 400˚ F oven for 8 minutes. Remove foil and bake for 4-5 minutes until pastry is set. Remove from the oven. Reduce oven temperature to 325˚ F.
- Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, half and half, green onions, salt, and pepper. Stir in ham or other meat. In a small bowl toss together the cheese and flour. Add this to the egg mixture. Mix well.
- Pour the egg mixture into the hot, baked pastry shell. Bake in the 325˚ F oven for 40-50 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean (160°F. at center). Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
- **VEGETARIAN QUICHE Prepare as Quiche, except omit the meat and add 3/4 cup sauteed vegetables to the egg mixture-may be broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, spinach, etc. (Fresh veggies are sauteed to enhance flavor and reduce liquid added to quiche.)
