    The people in my department had a birthday party for me today, and this was my contribution. I made the crust and filling and refrigerated them separately overnight. I decided to leave the onions out, but will try this again with them. I also was nervous about the crust, but it turned out great. It did stick a little, but that was no big deal. Everyone loved it! Will definitely make again. Thanks for the posting, Mizzy!

    This is delicious! Tastes much like a quiche. This was a new experience for me working with a dough like this; I wasn't sure if I was doing it right but it baked up nicely and tastes great. I added the onion to the filling without cooking it first and also added a few Tbsp chopped green chiles I needed to use up. I used light cream cheese & sour cream not nonfat; also used milk and 3 eggs. I found this recipe looking for a use for some leftover edam and I'm very glad I found it! Thanks for posting Mizzy!
