Many of you have asked for my quiche recipe.  Quiche is a simple baked egg dish that is almost foolproof.

First I will give you my no fail pie-crust recipe.  I wish I could take credit for it, but I got it from my mom who got it from Betty Crocker.

3 cups flour (rounded a little)
1 cup shortning
Cut in together, until size of small peas, then
In a separate bowl mix together
1 egg beaten
5 Tablespoons water
1 Tablespoon vinegar
1 teaspoon salt
Sprinkle mixture over flour, mix gently, roll out, no need to chill
This will make 3 crusts.

For the quiche, I have a basic recipe that can be added to.  The base is
8 oz cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 cup heavy cream
3 egg yolks
1 whole egg
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Beat until smooth and blended, then for
Quiche Lorraine
1/2 pound bacon, fried slightly crisp Save a bit for topping)
or for 
Sausage Quiche
12 ounces spicy sausage, fried and drained (save a bit for topping)
3 finely chopped green onions
*Chopped green pepper, broccoli, pimento, mushrooms, etc. may be added as desired.
Place meat and desired vegetables in an unbaked pie shell
Pour cheese mixture over
Garnish with reserved meat
Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes
Reduce heat to 350 degrees, bake 10 minutes longer till puffed and golden and knife inserted in center comes out clean.
