A delicious and hearty meal option, this traditional Croatian chicken and mushroom quiche recipe is sure to satisfy.
Satisfying Chicken and Mushroom Quiche Recipe
Known in Croatian as piletina sa gljivama, this is a main dish recipe for making a flavorful egg quiche loaded with diced chicken breast, sliced mushrooms, onions and fresh garlic. Unlike traditional quiche recipes, these instructions call for the beaten eggs to be poured over top of the chicken and mushroom mixture, creating a layered effect.
Topped with a melted layer of cheddar and mozarella cheeses, this quiche hits the mark in terms of flavor. You can also substitute the mozarella cheese with just cheddar cheese if desired.
