Steps to make Pimiento Cheese Make-Ahead Quiche


Prepare pastry


In a food processor, pulse 1¼ cups of all-purpose flour, ½ teaspoon sugar and ½ teaspoon of salt a few times until combined.


Add vegetable shortening


Add 6 tablespoons of cold vegetable shortening then pulse again until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.


Add water


Add about 3-5 tablespoons of water, pulsing in between each addition, until a moist dough forms.




Form into a disk-shape and cover with plastic wrap. Freeze for 30 minutes or refrigerate for up to 2 days, to chill.


Preheat oven


Preheat the oven to 375 °F.


Prepare crust


Roll out dough onto a lightly floured surface, into an 11-inch round shape then transfer to a 9-inch pie pan. Trim the excess and tuck the edge over the rim to create a decorated, crimp border.




Line dough with baking parchment paper and fill with pie weights or dried beans. Bake in the preheated oven for about 15 minutes. Then remove weights or beans and bake for another 10-13 minutes until the edge is golden and the base is cooked. Cool on a wire rack before using.


Prepare custard


In a large bowl, whisk 4 eggs with 1¼ cups of milk, ½ teaspoon salt, then add 2 cups of shredded Cheddar cheese, 1 jar of chopped pimientos, 2 cups of green onions, 2 teaspoons of hot pepper sauce, and 1 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce until combined into a custard filling.




Fill the pie crust with the prepared custard filling and bake in the preheated oven at 375 °F for about 30-35 minutes until the middle is cooked and set.



Cool for about 15 minutes and serve warm or at room temperature.

Skipped the hot pepper sauce cause spicy things upset my stomach, but the meal on it's own was delicious.
