“This quiche is so full of goodness it can be dinner! Equally good at a brunch. This recipe is fabulous to use up those bits of veggies that I always seem to be accumulating.....anyone else have that problem? The cream cheese crust is a bonus! From Spice and Spirit cookbook. Chill time for pastry isn't included in the prep time, since you can do this while making the rest of the recipe.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine flour, 1/2 cup butter, and softened cream cheese in a medium bowl, stirring until blended. Shape into a ball. Cover and chill for 30 minutes. (You can do this while you chop veggies and saute them).
  2. Saute mushrooms and next 5 ingredients in 2 tbsp melted butter in a large skillet until the vegetables are crisp-tender. Remove from heat; stir in paprika, salt, and pepper. Set aside.
  3. Press the chilled pastry evenly on bottom and up sides of a 10 inch pie plate. Sprinkle muenster cheese over the pastry. Spoon reserved sauteed vegetables evenly over the cheese.
  4. Combine the eggs and milk in a medium bowl. Beat with a wire whisk until blended. Pour the egg mixture over the vegetables.
  5. Saute 3 tbsp chopped onion in 1 tbsp butter in a small skillet until tender. Drain, and sprinkle the onions over the quiche. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 40 to 45 minutes, or until set and lightly browned.
  6. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
