Pillsbury Pie Crust

Ingredients

  • 1 crust from 1 box (14.1 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Pie Crust (2 Count), softened as directed on box
  • 1 cup half-and-half or milk
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 3/4 cup frozen corn, thawed, well drained (from 14.4-oz bag)
  • 3 tablespoons sliced green onions (3 medium)
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons finely chopped seeded jalapeño chile
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (4 oz)

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 375°F. Unroll pie crust; place crust in 9-inch glass pie plate as directed on box for One-Crust Filled Pie. Do not prick crust. Bake 10 minutes (if crust puffs up in center after baking, gently push down with bottom of metal measuring cup). Cool 10 minutes.
  • 2
    In medium bowl, mix half-and-half, eggs, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper until well blended. Layer corn, 2 tablespoons of the green onions, the jalapeño chile and shredded cheese in crust-lined plate. Pour egg mixture over top.
  • 3
    Bake 32 to 37 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean; if needed, cover edge of crust with foil during last 5 to 10 minutes of baking to prevent excessive browning. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. Garnish with remaining green onion; cut into wedges.

  • Jalapeño chiles vary in spiciness; we recommend you taste the chile before adding to your quiche so you can adjust the amount (1 to 2 tablespoons) to your liking.
  • Serve your jalapeño and cheddar quiche with a side of salsa or sour cream, or add fresh toppings like diced avocado or tomato.
  • Prefer to have meat in your quiche? Add 1/2 cup cooked chopped bacon to your jalapeño quiche layers, reduce corn to 1/2 cup and salt to 1/4 teaspoon. To add additional heat, switch to shredded pepper Jack cheese in place of cheddar.
