Mushroom Cheddar Quiche

Am I the only one who can never remember how to spell quiche?  Whenever I am looking online to look up a new recipe, it always takes me a few tries before Google figures out what I’m asking for.  Don’t they know what I’m asking for when I type keesh?  Luckily I found this recipe in my King Arthur Flour catalog so no searching required.  I modified the recipe slightly to use a premade crust to speed up the process but otherwise followed the recipe as is.
One of the best things about this recipe is that it is wonderfully rich without the million grams of fat that usually come in a quiche.  Instead of the cups of cream that are standard in quiches it uses just a 1/2 cup of milk.  I don’t miss the fat at all.  It’s creamy, flavorful and purely delicious.
