RECIPES FROM THE RETRO HOUSEWIFE

MAIN COURSE

SAVORY CHEESE PIE, American

Ingredients
  • Pastry for a double-crust 9-inch pie
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon each dry mustard and paprika
  • ½ pound sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded (about 2 ½ cups)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ tablespoons finely chopped onion
  • 2 medium tomatoes, peeled and sliced
  • Beaten egg
Preparation Instructions

Work pepper, mustard, and paprika into the pastry as you blend it. Divide pastry into 2 balls and roll out one; use to line a 9-inch pie pan. Distribute shredded cheese in pastry-lined pan. Beat eggs with milk, salt, and onion; pour over cheese. Cover with a layer of tomato slices. Top with remaining rolled-out pastry; trim (save trimmings), crimp edges, and male slits in top. Make 2 or 3 pastry leaves from scraps and place on center of pie. Brush top with beaten egg. Bake in a very hot oven (425°) for 10 minutes, reduce heat to 325° and cook 30 minutes longer or until browned. Serve hot. Makes 6 servings.
