Instructions
Herbed Crust
  1. I usually crush crackers in a zip bag using either a rolling pin or a mallet. But lacking those items in the motor home, I gently crushed the crackers using my Pyrex measuring cup to press on the bag of crackers. Worked like a charm!
  2. Combine all the dry Crust ingredients in a mixing bowl. Cut in the Butter and the Vegetable Shortening until it has the texture of coarse crumbs. Then add the 1/2 Cup of Water Tablespoon by Tablespoon and tossing after each addition. When well combined, press the mixture evenly into a 15x10x1″ pan and prick the crust all over with a fork.
Quiche Filling
  1. Spread the Swiss Cheese, Sausage Crumbles, Green Onions, Black Olives, Pimento and Parsley evenly over the Crust.
  2. Beat the eggs with a fork until combined. Add the Salt and Pepper. Add the Heavy Cream and the Light Cream, stirring until combined. Pour this evenly over the vegetables.
  3. Bake at 400° for 30-40 minutes until the filling has set and is nicely browned. A knife inserted into the middle should come out clean.
  4. Let cool for 15 Minutes, then cut into small squares about 2×2 inches.
  5. Serve warm or at room temperature and stand by to hand out copies of the recipe! So delicious!.
