Parsley, Onion and Cheese Quiche

Adapted from: From Julia Child’s Kitchen


Pie Crust:

1¾ cups all-purpose flour
1 stick chilled butter
2 tablespoons Crisco
1/3 – ½ cup cold water

Place flour in bowl of mixer. Add butter and Crisco. Mix butter, Crisco and flour until small bits are formed. Pour in 1/3 cup of cold water and continue mixing a few seconds. Scrape out of mixer onto a floured surface and gather the dough into a ball. Flour lightly and wrap in a sheet of plastic and refrigerate for about 1-2 hours. Dough will keep for up to 2-3 days.

Quiche Filling:

8-9 inch pie plate
3 large eggs
Pinches of pepper and nutmeg
¾ cup of grated Monterey Jack Cheese
1 ½ tablespoon butter cut into bits
½ cup milk, light cream or heavy cream
¾ cup chopped parsley
¼ cup chopped onion

Preheat oven 350 degrees:

Sauté the parsley and onion in the butter turning and tossing over moderate heat. Season with the pepper and nutmeg. Let cool to tepid. Place in a bowl and blend in to eggs, and cream. Season again and blend in the cheese. Top with the rest of the pie crust dough and press the edges with a fork.

Bake about 35 – 40 minutes or until the pie crust is golden.

This is so delicious for lunch or dinner with a beautiful side salad. Please do not be afraid of making your own crust. It is worth the time and effort.

Enjoy with Love,
