A Zillion Zucchini

My garden is still pumping out tons of zucchinis and summer squash, so when I was invited to a brunch this weekend, I thought “Let
them eat quiche!”… zucchini quiche that is. The texture of this herbaceous and cheesy quiche was perfectly creamy, fluffy, and the flavor was absolute perfection with a glass of bubbly!

Herby Cheesy Zucchini Quiche

Single pie crust for 1, 10-inch pie
2 cups shredded cheddar jack cheese
6 large eggs
1.5 cups heavy cream
1.5 teaspoons salt
½ teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon Dish off the Block Ciao Bella Italian Spice Blend
2.5 cups shredded zucchini, drained and squeezed dry between paper towels
1, 5.2-ounce package Boursin Garlic and Fine Herb Cheese

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Roll out the pie crust to 13 to 14 inches in diameter. Place the dough in your pie plate and crimp the edges to form a crust. Sprinkle ½ cup of the shredded cheese in the bottom of the crust.
Whisk the eggs and cream together in a large bowl. Add the remaining
cheese, salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, and zucchini. Stir to combine. Pour this mixture into the pie shell.
Crumble the Boursin cheese over the top of the quiche and press it lightly into the egg mixture. Take a pastry brush and dip it into some of the egg mixture and gently dab the outer crust to coat.
Bake for 1 hour or until the center is set and a knife comes out clean. If the crust begins to become too dark at the end of cooking, just cover the edges with foil and return to the oven.
Let sit for 20 to 30 minutes before cutting into wedges.
