My Quiche Bretagne

This is one of my favourites. Hubby and kids don't like quiche and always turn their noses up at it, but even they will have at least a slice, so I consider that an accomplishment.

1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 tbsp flour
2 eggs - beaten
1/4 cup white wine

Stir in:
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/4 cup chopped green onions
1 6oz block grated Swiss Cheese
thyme/basil/Salt & Pepper to taste

Pour into unbaked pie shell.
Bake 35-40 minutes @350

Optional Ingredients to Add:
- ham, mushrooms, fried bacon, cooked ham, drained crab meat, 10-12 asparagus, cooked peas, cooked/drained spinach

Tonight I made my own variation using cubed cooked ham, pre-softened celery & onions, and cooked green peas.

Each recipe looks yummier than the last. How can anyone pass up quiche? I LOVE quiche. At my old job there was a lovely little bakery/cafe on the next block that made a different quiche and crepes every day. I miss that place!
I am going to try this one out soon!
