Swiss Cheese Pie

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Chef Jean

When I found this recipe I thought for sure it would be on already, but I couldn't find it. This a very simple side dish or breakfast from Switzerland. It seems to be similar to quiche, but with more milk/cream. Posted for ZWT 7.

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.
