Vegetable Cheese Quiche


Guest post by a good friend, wench. Her and her Sir had Master and I over for lunch and she served this delicious quiche.  

Vegetable Cheese Quiche by Wench

One of my passions is cookbooks.  I truly believe that you can never have too many.  About three years ago, I discover Allrecipes.com.  Not only will they send you recipes daily, you can just spend hours online just looking at that their goodies.

This recipe came from my searching for a light lunch to serve some very special guests.  But because quiche can be fickle, I didn’t want to experiment on our friends.   This is the third quiche that I made in ten days.   The first one was awful.  The second one was good but just needed a few changes. As you can see, #3 was my lucky number, because there wasn’t much left so it must have been good. 

I am very lucky that my Sir will eat just about anything.  I do know never to put liver or whole wheat pasta in front of him.  My family teases me all the time because we rarely eat the same thing twice unless Sir requests it.

Don’t let the word quiche scare you like it did me.  Just follow the steps and enjoy.

 

Preheat oven to 400*

CRUST
1 - 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
1/3 cup melted butter

In a bowl mix the cheddar cheese, flour, salt, and mustard.  Mix in the butter, until evenly moist.  Press into the bottom and sides of 9” pie pan.

FILLING
1 – 1/2 Tablespoon oleo*
1 – 1/2 cups of broccoli, chopped … steamed
Chopped onion

1/2 teaspoon salt
