    6      ozs           mushrooms
    2      cloves        garlic
    2      T             butter
                         ground nutmeg
                         FOR PASTRY DOUGH:
    1 2/3  c             flour
    1                    egg yolk
      1/2  tsp           salt

                         FOR CHEESE CUSTARD:
    3                    eggs
    2                    egg yolks
    1 1/2  c             milk
    1      c             heavy cream
      1/2  c             grated Parmesan
                         ground nutmeg
 
   1.  Make pie pastry dough:   Cube butter,  work into flour        with
 fingers as for pie dough.   Add egg yolk,  salt  and        water in a well
 in the middle.   Press into a ball,  knead        1-2  minutes.   Shape into
 a ball.   Butter quiche pan and        roll  dough  into 12-inch circle.
 Fit into  quiche  pan.        Prick.  Refrigerate for 15 minutes, heat oven
 to 425.
 
        Blind-bake  by  lining with foil and  using  pie  weights.
 Bake  for about 15 minutes.   Reduce oven to 375.   Remove        foil and
 weights.             Prepare broccoli by trimming head,  leaving about  2
 stem.   Cut  florets from stem where they begin to branch.        Slice the
 stem likewise into sticks  (separately).   Bring        water to boil, add
 salt, cook until just tender (about 3-5        min.)  Drain,  rinse  with
 cold water,  and  drain  again        thoroughly.
 
        2.   Clean mushrooms and slice.  Chop garlic.  Melt butter        in
 frying pan.  Add mushrooms, garlic, salt, pepper, and a        pinch  of
 nutmeg.    Cook,  stirring,  until  liquid  has        evaporated,  about  5
 min.   Make  sure  you  cook  until        mushrooms are quite dry...or
 filling could be curdled.
 
        3.  Assemble  quiche and bake.   Make custard by  whisking
 eggs,  egg yolks, milk, cream, cheese, salt, pepper, and a        pinch  of
 nutmeg  together  in  a  small  bowl.    Spread        mushrooms  on  the
 bottom of the  pastry  shell.   Arrange        florets  and sticks of
 broccoli stem on top in  concentric        circles.   Ladle  cheese custard
 over vegetables  to  fill        pastry  shell almost to the rim.   Bake
 30-35 min.,  until        done when tested with metal skewer.
