Ingredients

crust

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour sifted
  • 1/2 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg lightly beaten
  • 1/2 teaspoon white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup water ice cold
  • 3/4 cup cold unsalted butter cut into pieces
  • 1 large egg + 1 teaspoon water for brushing

filling

  • 6 large eggs
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 ½ cups heavy cream
  • ½ cup white cheddar cheese freshly grated
  • cup pimento cheese, softened
  • ¼ cup chopped herbs, like parsley, basil and chives
  • 3 green onions, thinly sliced
  • kosher salt and pepper
  • pinch crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon everything seasoning, for sprinkling

Instructions 

crust

  • Add the flour, sugar and salt to a food processor and pulse just until combined.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the egg, vinegar and water.
  • Add the cold butter pieces into the food processor and pulse until small coarse crumbs remain.
  • Sprinkle the water/egg mixture over the flour and pulse again until the dough comes together.
  • Remove the dough with your hands and wrap it in plastic wrap. Refrigerate the dough for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, roll the dough out and place it in a 9-inch tart pan or (deep dish) pie plate.

filling

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Whisk together the eggs, garlic, cream, cheese, pimento cheese, herbs, onions and a big pinch of salt and pepper. Pour the filling into the crust. Brush the edges of the crust with the egg wash. Sprinkle the edges with everything seasoning.
  • Bake for 55 to 60 minutes, or until golden on top and set in the center. Let cool slightly before serving. This is so good served warm or cold! I like to serve it with a greens salad.
