Prepare a crust:
2 cups flour
3 tablespoons of butter
2 tablespoons of Crisco
2 tablespoons of oats
Dash of salt
Dash of pepper
4 tablespoons Cold water – plus more if needed to bind the dough
Place the flour in a large bowl along with the oats. Add the butter and Crisco and work the butter and Crisco with your fingers to form small pieces. Add the water to begin to bind the dough. Add as needed until dough is formed. Form into a ball.
Dust a clean flat surface with flour and roll out the dough to fit a 9 inch pie plate.
Preheat Oven 350 degrees:
Bake the crust for 10 – 12 minutes. Let cool.
For the Filling:
1 large zucchini – shredded
1 small red onion – sliced thin
2 cloves of garlic – chopped
5 eggs – beaten plus a splash of milk
4 oz. cheddar cheese – shredded
¼ cup grated parmesan cheese
Dashes of salt
Dashes of black pepper
Combine the shredded zucchini, sliced onion, chopped garlic, parmesan cheese, salt, pepper and shredded cheddar cheese in a large bowl.
In a separate bowl beat the eggs and milk. Pour into the bowl with the zucchini and combine.
Pour this mixture into the pie crust and top with more parmesan cheese.
Bake 35-40 minutes or until firm in the middle.
This is a perfect lunch or light dinner with a nice side salad.
Enjoy with Love,
