1 deep dish pie crust
2 cups evaporated milk or half and half or a mixture of both
4 oz. Swiss cheese, grated
1 sm. onion, finely minced
Green or red pepper (optional) minced
Mushrooms (optional) minced
Salt and pepper to taste
Pinch of nutmeg
1-2 cups ham diced (can also use bacon, cooked crispy and crumbled, sausage
cooked and drained)
Saute the onions, peppers and mushrooms in a little butter just
until a little soft, drain and set aside. Prebake the pie shell
for about 15 minutes at 350F. Remove from oven and set aside. Mix
cream, eggs, pepper, salt and nutmeg together. Put ham, onions,
mushrooms, green pepper, and cheese in pie shell.
Pour cream mixture over and bake at 350 F for about 45 minutes.
You can also use broccoli, asparagus is in season right now and is
great paired with brie cheese- cooked shrimp and crab and different
cheeses can be used. Just as long as you have the basic milk, eggs
and cheese you are okay, just use your imagination as to what you
want or have on hand.
