Broccoli Swiss Cheese Quiche in a Wheat Germ Crust

Jennifer Helton


I have been making this quiche for years, with variations to the filling, but I adore the crust! The wheat germ, butter and parmesan add a nice texture and tang to this traditional quiche recipe. I've been making this quiche since my Freshman year in college when I began my love of cooking. (that was 1981, folks)
