  1. In a large bowl, combine flour and salt. Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in milk until mixture forms a ball. Wrap in plastic wrap; refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  2. Unwrap dough. On a floured surface; roll out to fit a 9-in. pie plate. Place in pie plate; flute edges. Line unpricked pastry with a double thickness of foil. Bake at 450 degrees F for 5 minutes. Remove foil; bake 5 minutes longer.
  3. Spoon cauliflower into crust; top with almonds. In a blender, combine eggs, milk, mayonnaise, 1-1/4 cups cheese, nutmeg and pepper; cover and process until smooth. Pour over almonds; sprinkle with remaining cheese.
  4. Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees F for 30-35 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting.

The flavor was rather bland, even with added seasonings (salt, pepper, garlic). The cauliflower/almond combo wasn't my favorite. Maybe next time I'll try it with bacon instead of almonds.

I served this at a dinner party and everyone loved it. They remarked on the crunchiness of the almonds and the great melding of cheese and cauliflower. We baked about five of them and all were g...

I thought it was good; I'd use alittle more nutmeg and try it with swiss cheese.

This was very good, though not quit enough flavor, i added a small amount of salt and some garlic powder while i was eating it, and that addition was excellent. I will bake the garlic in next t...

This was an easy recipe to follow and a delicious quiche. It is, of course, hard to go wrong with cheese, cauliflower, toasted almonds, and pie crust. I used a store-bought crust and substitut...

This turned out very nice. I didn't use cheddar, but regular yellow cheese. I didn't have almonds either. I added some garlic powder, too. This is a very simple dish with simple flavors and is v...

Very good! Great way to eat cauliflower. I don't know how you could fit 4 cups of cauliflower in the quiche though. I was at 2.5 and the pie was full. I did add one extra egg though.
