    Ok.  Joy of Cooking p.108 -  quiche lorraine. 
    Ok.  Not hard it seems.

    Pre-cook crust- ok, it's pillsbury.
    Mix ingredients and add in right order - done.
    Turn down heat by 75 degrees due to convection oven- done.

    23.5 minutes and the thing is rising like in a B rated horror show- dark brown too.

    i'm leaving it in with for another several minutes- oven off

    it appears i lucked out.  the custard is moist and the heavy browning on top isn't bad at all.
