Broccoli, Cheddar & Goat Cheese Quiche

Broccoli, Cheddar & Goat Cheese QuicheI’m a baker first and a cook second. I grew up with flour and butter, and will always feel more comfortable working with them than meat and vegetables. The great thing about a quiche is that satisfies my inner baker while helping my inner cook make dinner! It does take time, since you need to make the crust, but it’s definitely worth it.
