Well, Evelyn, I finally took this out of the freezer and baked it! We loved this!! I at this for three days and it kept tasting better and better!! It is a very nice savory pie, densely textured but light as a whole. This pie did not "puff up like a souffle" for me. This might have been due to my freezing it prior to baking, but we loved this anyway. I will make this many times. Thank you for suggesting and posting this!
