Ingredients

1 pastry shell (9” / 23 cm) , frozen and thawed or home made
1-2 green onions, chopped

1 1/4 cup / 350 g Egg Creations Fat Free Original, well shaken
1 cup / 250 ml half and half (10%) cream
1 tbsp / 15 ml Dijon mustard
salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).

Tips

  1. Use Cheese and Chive Egg Creations™. Replace green onion with ½ cup (125 mL) diced sweet red pepper.

  2. Use Garden Vegetable Egg Creations™. Omit green onion and replace ham with smoked chicken or turkey.

  3. Replace ham with 8 slices, diced, cooked bacon or cooked salad shrimp.

  4. Lighten up with light (5%) cream in place of 10%.
