This guy is a fan favorite at my house. I have a basic base recipe for the quiche and then add different ingredients based on my mood or what I have in the refrigerator. The other day I had mushroom and swiss cheese. The mushrooms turn golden brown in the oven. And, I always like to use broccoli. It’s the great way to get veggies on the table — hide them amongst eggs, and cheese! In a PIE!This is such a versatile recipe. You can add so many different items and completely change out the dish.
