Salmon Mushroom Quiche

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by dicentra

I have no idea where I got this recipe. It has been in my files for awhile. I haven’t gotten around to trying it because Doug doesn’t like mushrooms or quiche. I might have to have a girls-only dinner just so I can make this! I think this could also be adapted to make bite-sized mini-quiches for a great appetizer. YUM.

I was a little worried about how this would turn out, but it tasted great! The salmon and cream cheese with chives goes together very well. I had way too much egg and cream left over that didn't fit into the pie shell. Next time I will try only using 1 cup of half and half. This was a great solution to making a creative dinner with leftover salmon. It was also very easy to make with very little prep time.
