I buy a 12 oz. package of precut mixed veggies to make the prep for this recipe super quick. We love broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots in ours, but feel free to experiment with different vegetable combinations. Share your favorites by leaving a reply!
Serve with applesauce, fried apples, or a fruit salad. Be sure to SAVE YOUR EGG WHITES! Refrigerate until ready to make the Raspberry Angel Pie (see Desserts).
Pastry for a 9-inch pie (I use Pillsbury)
1 cup chopped fresh broccoli
1 cup chopped fresh cauliflower
1 1/2 cups (6 oz.) shredded Cheddar cheese
1 1/2 cups (6 oz.) shredded Swiss cheese
4 egg yolks, beaten
1 cup whipping cream
1 1/2 teaspoons seasoned salt (I like Lawry’s)
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Fit piecrust into a 9-inch pie-plate. Cook fresh vegetables in microwave on high for 5-6 minutes or until crisp-tender. Spoon into prepared crust, and top with cheeses. Combine egg yolks and remaining 4 ingredients, stirring well. Pour over cheese. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until set. Let stand 10 minutes before serving. Serves 6.
