Tomato Quiche

I first tried this recipe at a family gathering and loved it! It is a great meatless lunch or dinner for a warm day, served hot or cold. This is my most requested dish for parties and a fairly simple one to make. Enjoy! —Heidi Anne Quinn, West Kingston, Rhode Island

    8 servings

Ingredients

  • Dough for single-crust deep-dish pie
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 large tomatoes, peeled, seeded, chopped and drained
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 2 cups Monterey Jack cheese, divided
  • 4 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1-1/2 cups half-and-half cream

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 425°. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough to a 1/8-in.-thick circle; transfer to a 9-in. deep-dish pie plate. Trim crust to 1/2 in. beyond rim of plate; flute edge. Refrigerate while preparing filling.
    In a large skillet over medium-high heat, saute onion in butter until tender. Add the tomatoes, salt, pepper and thyme. Cook over medium-high heat until liquid is almost evaporated, 10-15 minutes. Remove from the heat.
  • Sprinkle 1 cup cheese over crust. Cover with tomato mixture; sprinkle with remaining 1 cup cheese. In a small bowl, beat eggs until foamy. Beat in cream. Pour over filling.
  • Bake 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 325°. Bake until top begins to brown and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean, 35-40 minutes longer. Let stand 10 minutes before cutting.
Editor's Note
Dough for single-crust deep-dish pie: Combine 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour and 1/4 tsp. salt; cut in 2/3 cup cold butter until crumbly. Gradually add 3-6 Tbsp. ice water, tossing with a fork until dough holds together when pressed. Shape into a disk; wrap and refrigerate 1 hour.
