Need to use up some shrimp cocktail?
You will need:
some shrimp cocktail- I used between a cup and a cup and a half- sorry, I didn't measure- and I picked it up with a slotted spoon, so most of the liquid was left behind
1 unbaked pie crust- I used Trader Joe's frozen (I know I could make my own, but I'm lazy)
1/2 cup mayo
1/2 cup half and half
1 heaping TBS cornstarch (I use organic)
pepper to taste- I used 1/2 tsp
Add fresh dill, or dried, if you like the taste
1 1/2 cup shredded cheese (I used Trader Joe's Mexican Blend)
Mix everything but the shrimp with a whip until creamy, then add the shrimp and blend. Pour in to crust.
I have a shrimp cookie cutter- and if I make this for company, I'm going to bake a shrimp pastry crust "cookie"- and put it on the top of the quiche with some sprigs of fresh dill.
Bake at 350 for approximately 45 minutes- I probably do mine a little longer, because I love the top to be a full golden brown
