Cheesy Apple Quiche

  • 1-10" pie shell
  • 1¾ cups shredded Swiss cheese
  • 2 cups peeled, cubed tart Michigan apples (I use Empire)
  • ¼ cup minced shallots
  • 2 T. butter
  • 1 ½ t. flour
  • ½ t. cinnamon
  • ¼ t. nutmeg
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 2 cups half & half
  • 1 t. salt
  • Preheat oven to 350.

    Prepare pie shell and press into pie plate; sprinkle ½ of Swiss cheese in pie shell and bake 10 minutes on lowest rack of oven; cool.

    In medium skillet, sauté apples and shallots in butter until soft (about 8-10 minutes).

    Stir in flour, cinnamon and nutmeg.

    Spread apple mixture evenly in pie shell; sprinkle with remaining Swiss cheese.

    In separate glass bowl whisk together eggs, half & half and salt.

    Place pie plate on lowest rack in oven; pour egg mixture over apples and cheese.

    Bake until firm and knife comes out clean (about 60 minutes).

    Remove from oven and let stand for 10 minutes.

    Serve warm.
