broccoli quiche

ben came home from work and said he wanted to make a quiche. so we did. ingredients:
2 tablespoons butter
1 onion, minced*
1 teaspoon minced garlic
2 cups chopped fresh broccoli
1 (9 inch) unbaked pie crust
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
4 eggs, well beaten
1 1/2 cups milk
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon butter, melted

*we used a little less onion and added 1/2 of a yellow bell pepper. mmm.

directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Over medium-low heat melt butter in a large saucepan. Add onions, garlic and broccoli (and bell pepper). Cook slowly, stirring occasionally until the vegetables are soft. Spoon vegetables into crust and sprinkle with cheese.
Combine eggs and milk. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in melted butter. Pour egg mixture over vegetables and cheese.
Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes, or until center has set.*

*for some reason, ours took a while longer to set (probably about 20 minutes extra).

recipe from here.

So, every time I've made quiche, it's taken probably 1.5 hours to bake. Sooooo.....I always think it's done and then it just keeps cooking.
