Cheez-It Quiche!

I always see recipes for Graham Cracker Pie Crust and thought, why not try using Cheez-It crumbs for a savory pie? I know it's not traditional but the concept is the same. Cracker crumbs and butter make a wonderful crust and you can't go wrong with using a CHEEZY crust for a CHEESY Quiche! This is perfect to sneak in some veggies too cuz you REALLY can't taste the Broccoli in here covered in all the ooey gooey CHEESE!

Ingredients:

1 c Cheez-It crackers (I used White Cheddar)
2 Tbsp melted butter
½ c shredded Mozzarella cheese
1 c frozen broccoli florets, thawed, finely chopped in food processor
1 egg
½ tsp salt
½ tsp pepper

Prep:

1. Preheat oven to 375°F.

2. In a food processor, combine crackers and melted butter; blend until the texture of coarse meal.

3. Press into a 4-inch pan. Try to make the crust about 1/8 inch evenly all around. If the crumb mixture won't stick where you press them, just add another tablespoon of water to the mix. Even the crumbs up and make sure there are no gaps or holes.

4. Layer broccoli and cheese in crust-lined pan. In medium bowl, beat eggs and milk with fork. Stir in remaining ingredients. Pour over broccoli.

5. Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Let stand 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
