(Mushroom) Quiche  

Pie crust
2 ounces margarine
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 cups mushrooms, chopped
1 teaspoon lemon juice
4 eggs
1 cup cream
3/4 cup grated Swiss cheese
onion salt and pepper to taste

My recommendation is to buy one of the pre-made pie crusts at the grocery store-- one of the ones from the refrigerated section, not one of the pre-baked ones. Lay the pie crust into the pan, prick with a fork to make sure it doesn't bubble, and bake for about 15 minutes at 350 degrees, until barely cooked. Set aside.

Melt margarine in skillet. Add onions, mushrooms, lemon juice, onion salt and pepper, and cook for a few minutes until liquid is absorbed, stirring frequently. Beat eggs and cream together, mix in onion/mushroom mix, and pour into pie crust. Sprinkle Swiss cheese on top and bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees, until quiche is puffy and brown on top, and knife comes out clean.


You can use either light or heavy cream in this-- I use heavy, originally because it was all I could find and then because it tastes better. But also it's very bad for you. Your choice.

This recipe doesn't have to be vegetarian-- you can put anything into a quiche that you want. Personally I favor broccoli and ham.
