Recipe - Yummy Quiche! Great for Entertaining...

Pesto, Goat Cheese and Sun-Dried Tomato Quiche - serves 6-8

This quiche is so delicious that people will ask you for the recipe!  This quick and easy quiche recipe is great to entertain with or a great dish to take to a brunch or potluck.  I found this recipe online years ago and have sort of tweaked it and made it my own.  I'm not really sure on some of the measurements as I just add however much I feel like adding.  Nonetheless, this is a delicious vegetarian dish that both non-veg's and veg's will enjoy.  Also a great dish to try with the kids!

Ingredients:
Pesto - enough to cover the bottom of the pie crust
1 (9 inch) unbaked Pie Crust - I like Pillsbury brand
Crumbled Goat Cheese - 4 to 8 Tbsp (depends on your personal preference)
4 eggs
1/2 cup Whole Milk or Half and Half
1 Tbsp AP Flour
8-12 oil-packed Sun Dried Tomatoes, drained and cut into strips (again, depends on your personal preference)
Salt and Pepper, to taste

Directions:
1.  Preheat oven to 375 F.  Spread pesto evenly in the bottom of the pie crust.  Sprinkle goat cheese over pesto.
2.  In a large bowl, beat together eggs, milk/half&half and AP flour.  Season with salt and pepper.  Pour over goat cheese in pie crust.  Arrange or sprinkle sun-dried tomatoes on top.
3.  Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes or until done.

Serve either warm or cold.  Enjoy....
