WICKED KILLAHH LOBSTAHH AND HERBACEOUS CHEESE QUICHE

WICKED KILLAHH LOBSTAHH AND HERBACEOUS CHEESE QUICHE

 

2 cups cooked lobster meat, chopped into bite size pieces

4 Tbs. butter, melted

Pastry for one pie crust (recipe follows or you can use store bought)

4 Eggland’s Best large eggs

1 cup heavy cream (+ 2 Tbs. for glazing the pie crust)

1 Tbs. flour

1 tsp. salt

1 tsp. black pepper

2 Tbs. chopped tarragon leaves

2 Tbs. chopped parsley

5.2 oz. package Boursin Garlic and Herb cheese

½ + 1/3 cup Swiss cheese, shredded, divided

1/3 cup scallions

 

Preheat oven to 375.

 

Toss the lobster meat in melted butter and place in the refrigerator or freezer to let butter congeal (harden) on the lobster meat.

 

Prepare and chill the pie crust (or use a store-bought crust).   Roll the pie dough out on a floured surface to a 12” disc.  Place in a 10” pie plate and crimp the edges.  Brush with the 2 Tbs. of heavy cream.

 

In a large bowl, combine the eggs, 1 cup heavy cream, flour, salt, black pepper, tarragon, and parsley.  Whish vigorously until well combine and set aside.

 

Evenly layer the lobster meat in the bottom of the pie crust.  Break up the Boursin into chunks and layer over the lobster, followed by ½ cup of the Swiss cheese and scallions.  Pour the egg mixture over all and bake for 30 minutes.  Remove from the oven and sprinkle with the remaining 1/3 cup of Swiss.  Return to the oven and bake for an additional 25-30 minutes or until set in the middle. 

 

Let rest for 15-20 minutes.  Slice and serve. 

 

PIE CRUST (for 2 crust pie)

 

1/2 tsp. salt

3 cups flour

1/2 cup cold shortening

½ cup butter

1 egg

6-8 Tbs. ice water

1 tsp. vinegar

 

 

Mix the flour and salt in a large bowl.

 

Cut in shortening with a pastry blender or 2 knives until the mixture is crumbly and resembles coarse meal.

 

Beat the egg, vinegar, and 6 Tbs. of the water together in a separate bowl.

 

Using a fork, add the egg mixture to your other ingredients and combine until the whole mass forms a ball-like shape and sticks together, somewhat.  You may have to add additional small amounts of water until dough will form a ball.  However, make sure not to "overdo it" and ruin your flaky crust. The consistency should hold together but still have visible chunks of butter and shortening in the dough.

 

Break dough into 2 pieces and form each into a disc. Wrap in saran wrap and chill for at least 1 hour.  You will only need one disc for this one crust quiche recipe.  The other can stay in the fridge for up to 4 days.
