Why I Love This Recipe
My grandmother found this recipe online, we have it as one of the dishes for our Christmas brunch. It is delicious with a side of bacon (note: it is better fresh and hot straight from the oven) also great with a serving of fresh fruit.
CHEMISTRY INFORMATION: The pure substances are salt (NaCl). The ingredients that are homogeneous are onion, garlic, broccoli, milk, mozzarella cheese, pepper and butter. All ingredients mixed together is also homogeneous. The heterogeneous mixtures are the eggs, the pie crust and the quiche after it is baked. The melted butter, the minced onion, minced garlic, shredded mozzarella cheese and the eggs beaten all went through physical changes. The hardening of the eggs and the softening of the vegetables along indicate that chemical changes have taken place.
