Quiche au Fromage

Ok this is a simple quiche and there are many variations that can be made using this as a base.

First you need a mealy pie crust dough which is simple to make
1 and 1/2 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup shortening
4 tablespoons of cold water
mix these together until you have your dough and that part is done.

The filling isn't that hard to do either and is the part you can get creative with
4 ounces of cheese.....your choice what kind
3 eggs beaten
4 ounces of cream
8 ounces of milk
1/2 teaspoon of salt
pinch of white pepper
pinch of nutmeg

Ok once you have your crust laid out into the pie pan you will use sprinkle the cheese in the bottom.
Next beat together the filling ingredients thoroughly and pour into the shell
Place the quiche into a 375 degree oven on the bottom shelf and bake for about 20-30 minutes or until the filling has set up
Once you're done you can serve this hot or cold take your pick.....some of the variations I was talking about is you can put mushrooms, ham, spinach...lots of things into this just take your pick.
