I made a basic pie shell and baked it. (I have a hopeless love for plain old uncooked pie dough! I had to make myself throw away the scraps- what is it about butter and flour?)
I filled my baked shell with blanched asparagus, sauteed mushrooms, and chicken. The chicken helped make this more of an entree than an appetizer. I poured my egg mixture over it all and sprinkled it all with cheddar.
I loved this for dinner, but I look forward to eating leftovers for lunch. I'm not the type that likes a sandwich every day, so a meal like this is perfect for midday.
*I just want to take a moment to say that I love my Acme! Although this recipe called for gruyere, I had never bought this type of cheese. I asked about it at the deli and they helpfully pointed out which cheese I was looking for. Since I had never tasted it, they brought a packaged block back, opened it, and sliced a few pieces for me to taste. Although I didn't buy it (my budget is built for necessity, so I substituted with swiss), I found it delicious. I also learned an important lesson- Taste your cheese before you smell it!!!!! The boys working in the deli could hardly think about eating it after they smelled it. And Scallywag had a great time teasing me about my stinky cheese!
