DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF (200ºC). Grease or line a 10” x 15” (40 cm x 25 cm) jelly-roll pan with parchment paper.
  2. Crust: In a medium mixing bowl, combine flour and salt. Cut in shortening using pastry blender or 2 knives until all flour is blended in to form pea-size chunks. Sprinkle with water, 1 Tbsp. (15 mL) at a time. Toss lightly with fork until dough forms ball. Roll dough on a lightly floured surface to fit jelly-roll pan. Place dough in prepared pan, folding edges under. Flute edges. Prick crust with fork.
  3. Filling: Sprinkle cheese, ham, onions, parsley and red peppers evenly over crust. In a medium bowl, beat eggs, milk, salt and pepper. Pour over filled crust.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 35 minutes or until set. Cool for 5 to 10 minutes. Cut into 2” x 1 1/2” (5 cm x 3.5 cm) pieces.
