  • Preheat oven 400 degrees.

Roast in preheated oven 15-20 minutes turning at least once. Remove from oven and allow to slightly cool. Reduce heat in oven to 375 degrees. Once cool slice the green beans into smaller pieces.
  • Meanwhile beat eggs with half & half. Then add remaining ingredients reserving the butter for the quiche pan. Mix well.
  • Put green bean mixture on bottom of buttered pie pan and spread evenly. Pour egg mixture on top.

* You can use any cheese you like. I like to use Monterey jack cheese because it has nice flavor and melts easily.
You can certainly vary the amount of cheese as well.
