Wild Mushroom, Chive & White Cheddar Quiche
Who says quiche is just for brunch?  Europeans serve egg-based dishes at every meal.  Serve this as a savory and satisfying addition to any cocktail party.

1 Pastry Crust - (store-bought or homemade)
4 eggs
1 1/4 cup of Half & Half
Salt & Pepper
1/4 teaspoon of Cayenne Pepper
1/2 cup of white cheddar cheese, shredded
1/3 cup of mushrooms, sliced (wild, shitake, porta, etc.)
1 tablespoon of chives, 1-inch snips

Roll out pie dough and place in a tart pan with a removable bottom.  Trim the excess dough by pressing the dough off at the top of the pan against the edge. For the filling, whisk together eggs, half-and-half and seasonings. Stir in the remaining ingredients. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-35 minutes.
