This recipe is has a very humble background and is not an elegant quiche like the one that Tommy prepared but it is delicious ... I posted this recipe on another thread . It is not my recipe but the winning recipe in our 2008 National Peanut Festival Recipe Contest . The Southern lady who created this dish was one of ten children and learned to make our Southern biscuits when she was just six years old :
Ingredients for crust:
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
One-half cup cocktail peanuts, chopped
One-half teaspoon salt
One-fourth teaspoon paprika
One-third cup peanut oil
Ingredients for filling:
1 cup sour cream
One-half cup chicken broth
One-fourth cup mayonnaise
3 large eggs, beaten
2 cups cooked chicken, chopped
One-half cup shredded cheddar cheese
One-fourth cup fresh onion, minced
One-fourth teaspoon dried dillweed
3 drops hot sauce
One-fourth cup cocktail peanuts, chopped
Preheat over to 350 degrees. Combine flour, 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, one-half cup chopped cocktail peanuts, salt and paprika. Stir well and add peanut oil. Press on bottom and along sides of a 9-inch deep dish pie plate. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes. Cool completely (about 15 minutes).
Mix sour cream, broth,mayonnaise and eggs. Stir with whisk until smooth. Stir in chicken, one-half cup cheese, onion, dillweed and hot sauce. Pour into cooled crust and put peanuts on top. Bake for 55 minutes. Cool 10 minutes and serve.
I hope that you all enjoy it !
