Smoked Salmon Quiche

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Galley Wench

A perfect dish for a special brunch or light dinner! To insure that the crust does not get soggy and the custard is fully cooked, besure to add the filling to a warm, partially baked crust.

Both hubby and I really enjoyed this. I used a store-bought pie crust, and there was too much custard for it. If you do the same, cut the custard in half. Next time, I'll make my own crust and use my deeper pie dish. I used milk instead of cream, as I had no cream. It tasted great anyway. Be sure to use dry smoked salmon. I don't think wet smoked salmon would work very well. I served this with steamed/buttered asparagus, and the combo was great. This is a keeper for sure.
