Mushroom Quiche

If you follow my blog regularly then you already know that I'm a lover of mushrooms. It's a weird food to love, I know, but I've always enjoyed them, raw or cooked. When I found this recipe in Costco's cookbook In the Kitchen: The Costco Way, 2008 I was very excited. When I think about picnics with my family I think of quiche. And with the warmer weather approaching (I hope!) I thought you might enjoy this quiche for your next picnic.

Famous Mushroom Quiche
1 unbaked 9-inch pie shell
4 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
1 tablespoon butter
1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
2 tablespoons flour
3 eggs, lightly beaten
1 1/4 cups milk
1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Bake pie shell for 10 minutes, remove and let cool.
Saute mushrooms in butter over medium-high heat until tender. Remove from the pan with a slotted spoon and set aside. 
In a bowl, toss cheese with flour; add eggs, milk, parsley, garlic salt and pepper. Stir in mushrooms. Pour into crust. 
Bake for 1 hour, or until set, covering edges with foil to prevent overbrowning, if needed. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting. Take to the park and enjoy!

This recipe is from the cookbook In the Kitchen: The Costco Way, 2008.

  1. Sounds wonderful. We like quiche, and we like mushrooms. What could be better? I'll have to give this one a try sometime.
