A nice combination of ingredients in this quiche.

- fresh ground pepper
- 1 cup grated monterey jack cheese
- 1 (9 inch) pie crusts, partially baked
- 1⁄4 cup sun-dried tomato, soaked in boiling water for 5 minutes, drained, dried and chopped (do not use oil-packed tomatoes)
- 1 (14 ounce) canquartered artichoke hearts, drained
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil (or 1/2 teaspoon dried basil)
- 1⁄4 cup grated parmesan cheese
- In a mixing bowl, whisk the eggs, half-and-half, garlic, salt, and pepper together.
- Sprinkle grated Monterey Jack cheese over the bottom of the pie shell.
- Sprinkle the sun-dried tomatoes, artichoke hearts, and basil on top of the cheese.

This made awesome and delicious mini quiches! They taste great either hot or at room temperature.
I made a half recipe of the filling using 1/2 cup heavy cream instead of milk and one whole egg plus one egg white. I used a mini muffin pan and cut out the pie crust into small circles with a 2-inch ravioli stamp. To get 24 dough circles I used about 1 1/2 refrigerated pie crusts. (Cut out the extra and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar, then bake for a sweet snack!)
I agree with the other reviewer who said there may be a typo in the ingredient list. We did put all of the egg mixture in and it overfilled the pie crust - and we used a 9" deep dish crust. Maybe it's meant to make two? Recipe ingredient combo was great, only gave it 4 stars because of the fact that, using all of the egg mixture, it took almost an hour at 350 to bake through.
Tasty, but these ingredients are way too much for a 9-inch baking crust. Egg mixture overflowed on the counter, and I didn't even use it all. Maybe that's why it says "1 (9 inch) pie crusts)"? Thought this was a typo, but maybe this recipe is meant to make two pies. Use a bigger crust, or less ingredients.
