Broccoli Mushroom Quiche

fast.cook's picture
A plateful of temptation best describes this Broccoli Mushroom Quiche recipe. Dish is always prepared with broccoli as the most essential ingredient. Dish is a good option if you have 55 minutes. Whenever I have French friends visiting I always prepare dish which is most loved by them. I just love Appetizer recipes and this dish is my only favorite amongst them. Try it and feel free to pitch in suggested improvements or variations.
