This Broccoli Prosciutto Boursin Quiche is savory and so tasty with the addition of Prosciutto and Boursin cheese.
Quiche is a classic and popular main dish that French people enjoy to have on rotation during the week, for brunch, or even picnic. You can also find them easily on the menu of any Brasserie, Café Restaurant, or bakery.
It is so easy to make a quiche with anything you have in hand. Quiche is filling and satisfying with a big bowl of salad or soup (depending on the season) on the side.
For this Broccoli Prosciutto Boursin Quiche, I made an olive oil crust. This pairs nicely with this quiche and it is very quick to make. I added some Turmeric, which gives a nice color and mild aromatic flavor.
