Goat Cheese & Mushroom Quiche

Last night I decided to make a quiche...the nice thing about quiche is that you can really put whatever you have/like in it and its like a delicious little dinner pie of your favorite foods. I chose one with goat cheese, mushrooms and red onions... three of my favorite things and got cooking.

You could easily buy a pre-made pie crust but I made my own. It didn't turn out as pretty as I would have liked it to (and expect to do a much better job on my second go around) but it tasted great...sooo no big deal.
Anyway... I whipped up my thyme pie crust and got it in my pie tin.


I sauteed up some garlic, red onions and mushrooms


and whisked eggs and herbs together in this bowl...


I put the sauteed onions and mushrooms into my pie crust and topped it with pieces of herbed goat cheese


then poured in the egg mixture....


It went in looking like this:


and came out like this!:


So pretty!

Some bites tasted like a fluffy omelette while others tasted like a creamy goat cheese pie... mmmm goat cheese pie....
Can't wait to experiment with more ingredients!
