Tomato Basil Quiche

  • 1 recipe Perfect Pie Crust
  • 2 c chopped tomatoes
  • 1 t kosher salt
  • 1-2 T fresh basil, sliced into thin slivers (chiffonade)
  • 1/8 t fresh cracked pepper
  • ½ c chopped green onion
  • ½ c shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • ½ c shredded Swiss cheese
  • 2 T all-purpose flour
  • 1 c evaporated milk
  • 2 eggs

On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to fit a 9-in pie plate; transfer to the plate. Trim to ½-in beyond edge of plate; shape the edges. Line with parchment paper, fill with pie beads or beans, and bake at 375 for 15 min. 

Place tomatoes in the crust; sprinkle with salt, pepper, green onions, basil, and cheeses. In a bowl, whisk together the flour, milk, and eggs until smooth. Pour over filling. Bake at 375, 40-45 min, or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Let stand 10 min before cutting.
