2Ears Roasted Corn, or about 1 cup frozenThis recipe uses Silver Queen, though any corn can reasonably substituted.
1SmallZucchini, sliced into thin rounds
1CupHeavy Cream, Half and Half, or Milk
1/4Cup Crumbled Goat CheeseOptional. May use more or less depending on desired taste
1/4TeaspoonFresh Black Pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Shuck whole ears of corn and wrap in tin foil with a small pat of butter.
Place wrapped corn on a roasting pan and place in oven for 20 minutes.
After 20 minutes remove from oven and set aside to allow to cool.
Turn oven heating down to 375 degrees.
Slice zucchini very thinly using a paring knife or mandolin.
In a medium bowl, whisk six eggs.
Add the salt and pepper, cream, and goat cheese. Whisk to combine.
Once the corn has cooled, remove from tin foil and slice from the cob. You should have 1/2 cup to 1 cup kernels.
Add corn kernels to egg mixture and stir to incorporate.
Pour egg mixture into the prepared pie crust.
Bake at 375 for 20-25 minutes, then carefully remove from oven.
Arrange zucchini slices in circles on the top, or scatter them as you desire. Sprinkle with additional fresh ground black pepper if desired.
Place quiche back in oven for an additional 15-20 minutes, or until the center is set.
*Quiche may be served hot or cold. **The goat cheese is optional, and other cheeses may also be used such as blue cheese, gorgonzola, feta, or swiss. ***Any type of sweet corn may be used. Silver Queen is just a favorite!
