This is one thing you can do with an abundance of eggs, it is also a way of using up little bits of  vegetable odd and ends in your fridge.

New Recipe; Quiche

One 1/2 of a pie crust recipe rolled and fitted to a  9'-10' deep pie pan or casserole dish. I cheat and use the ready made crusts.

Recently I made one using greens and herbs from the garden.

Ingredients:

1 med onion thinly sliced                                   1c. fresh mushrooms sliced                           1/2 cup diced sun dried tomatoes                     1 c. chopped sorrel                                             1 c. spinach                                                   1/4 c. finely   chopped garlic chives                  8 eggs                                                                  1 3/4 c. cream                                                 2c. shredded swiss cheese                                  1t. savory                                                            1/2 t. nutmeg                                                         salt & pepper to taste

Sauté' onions, sundried tomatoes until soft, let cool while you beat eggs and cream together, add rest of the ingredients stir, add sautéed onions and tomatoes. Pour into crust, cover with tin foil, bake at 400 for 1 hr. take foil off cook for an additional 15-20 min. it should jiggle a little when it is done. You may need to cook an additional 5- 10 min. if needed.
