Lay shredded cheese in the bottom of the pie crust.

Step 5

Carefully pour in egg and milk mixture.

Step 6

Arrange sliced squash on top of egg mixture.

Bake for 35-40 minutes or until eggs are set and crust is browned.  Note: If crust begins to brown too much before eggs are set, cover crust with foil.
