Bake at 375° for 5-8 minutes or until light golden brown. Remove foil. Sprinkle 1/2 cup cheese over crust. In a skillet, cook the beef, celery and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink and vegetables are tender; drain. Spoon half of the meat mixture into the crust; top with cauliflower and the remaining meat mixture and cheddar cheese. In a bowl, beat eggs, milk, butter, paprika and pepper. Pour over the filling.

Let stand 15 minutes before cutting. Yield: 8 servings.
Reviews for Cauliflower Beef Quiche
"I decreased to about 50-75% all the ingredients for my 9" pie pan and it still overflowed about a 1/2 cup of egg mixture onto the cookie pan I thankfully put underneath it. Took 60 minutes, not 30-40, to bake. Bland and almost tasteless; needed salt and flavorings like sage. Definately will not be making this again; only benefit is that the cauliflower tasted good with cheese."
