- Nonstick cooking spray
- 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour, plus more for rolling
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 8 tablespoons (1 stick) cold unsalted butter, cubed
- 1/2 lb ROMA Chorizo, casing removed
- 5 large eggs
- ½ cup whole milk
- ½ cup heavy cream
- 1 ½ cups grated Emmenthal cheese (about 6 ounces)
- 1 cup diced boiled potato
- Spray a 9-inch glass pie dish with nonstick cooking spray.
Mix the flour and salt in a food processor. Add the butter and pulse to form a coarse meal. With the motor running, add 6 tablespoons cold water in a slow stream, processing until the dough comes together. Then gather the dough into a ball and transfer it to a floured surface. Roll the dough out to form a 12-inch round. Transfer the dough to the prepared pie dish.
- Crimp the edges between your fingers to make a decorative border, removing any excess dough. Freeze the crust for 20 minutes.
- Preheat the oven to 425°F.
- Line the crust with foil and fill it with pie weights or uncooked dried beans. Bake for 15 minutes. Then remove the foil and beans and continue to bake for 5 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown. Let the crust cool completely. (The crust can be made 1 day ahead. Cover and store at room temperature.) Leave the oven on.
- Cook the chorizo in a dry medium-size heavy saute pan over medium heat for 8 minutes, or until dry and crisp. Let the chorizo cool on a paper towel–lined plate.
- Whisk the eggs, milk, and cream in a large bowl. Mix in the chorizo, cheese, and potato. Pour the mixture into the cooled crust. Bake for 35 minutes, or until the filling is puffed and a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.
- Serve hot or at room temperature, cut into wedges.
