Quiches are great to make! They taste wonderful but are also quite versatile. You can make this vegetarian if you would like. Simply omit the meat.
Ingredients
  Flour 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Cold butter 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs) (Very Cold)
  Ice cold water 7 Tablespoon
  Eggs 6
  Milk 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Cream 1 Cup (16 tbs)

Directions

• Place the flour and salt in a food processor. Add the cold butter – cut into pieces.
• Pulse until you have a bread crumb consistency.
• Add ice cold water a TBS at a time. Stop adding water as soon as you have dough that is neither sticky nor dry. Wrap in plastic and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
• Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
• Roll out dough and place in tart or pie pan. Prick bottom with a fork.
• Place the eggs in a bowl. Add the milk and cream. Whisk until smooth.
• Add all of the rest of the ingredients – leaving some Parmesan cheese for the topping. Mix well.
• Pour the egg mixture into the pie shell. Top with shredded cheese.
• Bake for 40 to 50 minutes – until eggs are set and an inserted knife comes out clean.
• Enjoy!
