About this recipe: This is a nice change from ordinary quiche. Full of ham, wild rice, mushrooms, red peppers and flavoured with a touch of Dijon mustard, this quiche is fabulous for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Enjoyed the quiche although not over fond of the mustard, next time I will leave this out. I made two smaller quiches instead of the one large. I did bake for a little longer than stated. - 16 Feb 2010
