Excellent dish! Made a great side for chicken. I added 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg to it, as I usually add that to my quiches, just for a little extra flavor. I used fat-free half and half, and a Marie Callendar pie crust. Looking forward to a piece cold for lunch tomorrow.

WOW, this pie is AWESOME!!!! It works out so well, is super quick and easy to make and tastes divine! I think this would be a big hit at any party and since its so easy to make I think Ill bring this to any potluck Im asked to bring something to from now on. lol
Seriously its really, really good! The filling is creamy and cheesy with a nice mild flavour. I think this recipe is very versatile, too. Im going to try one with a sauteed onion cheese filling next and maybe a broccoli or pea or sun-dried tomato version after that. YUM! Adding some nutmeg and other spices to the basic recipe would probably also be yummy, but the basic one is just great as is.
I used this recipe for the crust and it worked out nicely: Recipe #282494. Also I chose the milk option and used low-fat milk. It was a big success and I didnt feel as guilty eating more than a slice. lol
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this winner of a recipe with us, Chef Jean!

I made this for lunch today using a frozen premade pie crust and it was very delicious. Along with the salt and pepper I added a little onion powder. Doesn't really need anything added. I will make this again and again. Whoever said plain can't be fantastically delicious! Thanks so much for sharing your recipe. Laurel.
