Turkey Swiss Quiche

This recipe is the perfect solution to what to do with left over turkey. My family looks forward to it every year after Thanksgiving.—Lois Forehand, Little River Academy, Texas

    6 servings


  • 1 pastry shell (9 inches), unbaked
  • 1-1/2 cups finely chopped cooked turkey
  • 4 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup half-and-half cream

  • 2 tablespoons diced pimientos
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
