Herbed Mushroom Quiche

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.

Very good. Easy to make, came out perfectly. I substitued skim milk for the nonfat dry milk powder/water; used crimini mushrooms and threw in some cooked onions too. I used light Jarlsberg instead of Swiss. Very tasty -- we'll definitely use this again!

This was a big hit with my daughter and everyone else. I used low fat milk instead of the water and dry fat milk powder. I had way too much liquid for the pie crust though. Would cut it down by half a cup of liquid and one egg.
