July

Corn Quiche

Make crust - 1 cup flour, 1/2 t. salt, 1/2 stick butter, sprinkle of cayenne pepper.  Process in food processor, add water through the top until it rolls up in a ball, usually about 1/8th to 1/4th cup.  Roll out and put in pie plate.

In frying pan, add three strips of bacon.  Fry until crisp and remove from pan (save).  Add 1/2 c. chopped onion, and corn cut from 3 - 4 cobs (depending on size).  Saute for a few minutes.  Put in a bowl, crumble in the bacon, add 3 eggs, 1/2 c. mayo, about 1 cup grated cheese (I use whatever I have - the last time it was mozzarella), and 1/2 c. milk or cream or evaporated milk.  Mix and pour into pie shell.  If there is any left over, I spray a small glass casserole dish with oven spray and pour it in there to bake with the quiche (who says there is no such thing as a free lunch?)  Bake at 350 for about 45 minutes (firm center and tan around the edges when done).
