  • 2-3 Tbsp. Ice water
  • FILLING:

  • 1 cup Heavy cream
  • 2 cups Sargento® Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 cup Yellow zucchini squash, sliced into 1/4" slices
  • 1 cup Sliced mushrooms
  • 1 cup Fresh or frozen peas
  • 1 cup Orange bell pepper, chopped

Directions
  1. For quiche crust: In a medium bowl, combine whole wheat flour and next 4 ingredients. Stir well with a fork. Add butter and blend in with a fork. Stir in ice water. Blend together with your hands until mixture sticks together when pressed. Form into a ball and place in a re-sealable plastic bag. Flatten into a 4" disk and refrigerate for 1 hour. While dough is chilling, prepare filling.
  2. For filling: In a blender, combine eggs and cream. Blend on low until smooth. Set aside. In a large bowl, combine 1 1/2 cups of cheese and remaining ingredients. Toss to combine. Set aside.
  3. Remove dough from refrigerator and place between two pieces of parchment paper. Using a rolling pin, roll out dough into a 14" circle. Remove top sheet of parchment and turn pie dough over into a 10" fluted quiche pan. Press dough into the bottom and up the sides. Freeze pan for 20 minutes.
  4. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Add cheese and vegetable mixture into dough lined quiche pan. Pour egg mixture into quiche pan. Place quiche pan on a large baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees and bake an additional 45-50 minutes or until egg mixture is set in the center. Remove from oven, top with remaining 1/2 cup of cheese and let cool completely. Slice and serve.
