Herbed Mushroom Quiche

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by HEP MEP

This is a nice little quiche from The Runner's Cookbook printed in 1979. I used to make this quite a bit till my husband informed me that he does not like Swiss cheese. Oh well.

Excellent quiche. Great meld of flavors between the mushrooms (baby portobello), cheese and basil. Made as written with the exception of reducing water to 1 cup and adding 1 more egg. This recipe will go into my breakfast cookbook and be made again. Made in memory of MEP.
