Rich Flavorful Quiche

No two quiches are ever alike at my house; but I always start with a flaky crust and I'm never shy with the cheese. This makes a great brunch. Serve with salad or fresh fruit, and a nice mimosa or sangria. :)

The Crust:
1 generous cup flour
1 good sized handful of Crisco (approx. 1/2 cup)
1/2 tsp salt
3-4 Tbsp water

Mix the flour and salt with your hands. Add Crisco, and gently toss it around with your fingers until the mixture looks like cornmeal. Starting with 2 Tbsp water, form the mix into a ball. Keep adding water until the mixture holds together. If you wrap it in plastic wrap and stick it in the fridge for 1/2 hour or so, it will be much easier to work with. Roll it out into a circle and lay it in your pie pan.

The Filling:
3 eggs
1 cup shredded cheese
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp salt
1 Tbsp flour
1 cup's worth of veggies and/or meats; I used onion, mushroom, broccoli, and ham. Be creative!

Combine your filling in a separate bowl and pour it into your pie crust. Bake at 400 for 1 hour.
