I decided on a pre-made pastry dough because it is time efficient and truly does taste delicious. In considering apples, I settled on the Gala for its sweetness and popularity in supermarkets. As a side note, I estimate this quiche to cost about $2.37 a serving, making it a very economical supper when paired with a salad.
1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed
For the Custard
3 large eggs
half & half (about 1 1/2 cups)
2 tablespoons fresh thyme
pinch of nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
For the Filling
6 oz. Ile De France Original Goat Cheese, chilled
2 Gala apples, chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1 shallot, minced
1. Preheat the oven to 425.
2. Roll puff pastry to 11-inch square. Transfer to 9-inch diameter glass pie plate, trim edges, and place in the refrigerator until ready to fill.
3. Whisk eggs in a 4 cup measuring cup. Add half & half until you reach the 1 1/2 cup line. Whisk together with thyme, nutmeg, salt and pepper. Chill in the refrigerator until ready.
3. Cut the apples into chunks and coat with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil. Roast for 30 minute or until desired taste. 4. Once the apples are complete, lower the oven temperature to 375.
5. Saute the shallots for 5 minutes over medium heat (with a little butter or olive oil).
6. Combine apples, shallots, and crumbled goat cheese in the pie shell.
7. Cover with custard mixture and bake for 25-30 minutes or until the top is a golden color.
