  • Meanwhile, heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally until beginning to soften, about 5 minutes. Add mushrooms and cook, stirring, until the onions are golden brown and the mushrooms reduce by half, about 5 minutes. Season with 1/4 teaspoon salt and set aside to cool slightly. Transfer the vegetable mixture to the crust.

  • Whisk eggs, milk, pepper and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt in a medium bowl. Pour over the vegetables.

  • Set the quiche on a baking sheet and bake until the center is set, 35 to 40 minutes. Let stand for 10 minutes before slicing.
