- 1 sheet refrigerated pie pastry
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 2 medium tomatoes, sliced
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded sharp cheddar cheese
- 1 can (6 ounces) pitted ripe olives, drained and finely chopped
- 1/2 cup chopped sweet onion
- 3 green onions, chopped
- 4 slices provolone cheese
- Unroll pastry into a 9-in. pie plate; flute edges. Line unpricked pastry shell with a double thickness of heavy-duty foil. Bake at 450° for 8 minutes. Remove foil; bake 5 minutes longer.
- In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the flour, salt and pepper. Add tomato slices, a few at a time, and shake to coat. In a large skillet, cook tomatoes in oil for 1-2 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
- In a small bowl, whisk eggs and cream; stir in cheddar cheese. Sprinkle olives and onions into crust; top with two slices of provolone cheese. Layer with tomatoes and remaining provolone. Pour egg mixture over the top.
- Bake at 375° for 40-45 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting.
- Freeze option: Cover and freeze unbaked quiche. To use, remove from freezer 30 minutes before baking (do not thaw). Preheat oven to 375°. Place on a baking sheet; cover edge loosely with foil. Bake as directed, increasing time as necessary for a knife inserted near the center to come out clean. Yield: 8 servings.

"Very delicious !!!! Only change is that I used a bolder olive. Kalamata works well with all they other flavors in this quiche."
"After reading the comment I chopped the tomatoes, sprinkled them with salt and put them on paper towels to juice out. I did not fry them. Turned out delicious. Not to mention saving a step and some dishes!!"
