    1       c            Grated Cheese
    1       c            Half & Half
    4       lg           Eggs
    1                    Unbaked Pie Shell
    1       c            Filling
    1       t            Salt
    1 1/2   ts           Herbs (your choice)
      1/8   ts           Black pepper
   Preheat oven to 350F.  Beat the eggs.  Brush pie shell
   with beaten egg and pre-bake for 5 minutes. Allow to
   cool for a couple of minutes. Combine cheese and
   filling material and place in pie shell. Dust with
   salt, pepper and herbs. Combine half & half and eggs
   and pour over all. Leave a little room for expansion.
   Bake 30-40 minutes (golden brown and a knife inserted
   in the center comes out clean). Allow to rest for
   about 10 minutes before serving. It is a good idea to
   place your pie pans on a cookie sheet just in case
   this boils over.
   Re:  measurements.  Since you generally buy a dozen
   eggs, frozen pie shells come two to a pack, half and
   half is sold in Pints and it is easy to buy a big
   enough brick of cheese, I usually double this and make
   two quiches. They freeze well and make great leftovers
   and are a wonderful breakfast.
   Re:  fillings ... anything you want.  Suggest spinach,
   chopped brocoli, onion, green pepper, crab, shrimp,
   sausage, bacon, ham, turkey, etc.
