broccoli quiche

broccoli quiche


the first time i had quiche was in a french restaurant in epcot center when i was twelve. i had this weird obsession with france, and was intent on trying this rich, delicious food. now that i'm all growed up, i suddenly remembered one day that i can make it for myself. so that's what i did!


Ingredients
~ 8 large eggs, beaten
~ 2 cups half and half
~ Salt and pepper
~ 2 heads broccoli
~ 6 oz Swiss cheese (shredded, or ripped apart if they are slices)
~ 2 frozen pie crusts

Note- if you found one big deep dish pie crust, rather than two small ones, it might be good. my supermarket only sells the shallow-dish pans for some reason. I need two of them to contain all the ingredients. And when I use those, I find that this quiche has a bit too much crust for my taste.

But I can't complain too much... come on, we're talking about quiche, here.

Directions
~ Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
~ Beat the eggs, half and half, salt, and pepper in a bowl.
~ Layer broccoli and cheese in the bottom of the pie crusts
~ Pour the egg mixture on top.
~ Bake for 35 to 45 minutes until the egg mixture is set.


~ Enjoy!

  1. Quiches are the perfect summer food in my book. Easy to pop in the oven after a long day and also easy to bring along to picnics:D This one looks great!

  2. Quiches have always been a favorite with my family. They're easy, tasty, and it actually freezes and reheats pretty well.

  8. i LOVE making quiche! try making it with goat cheese, caramelized onions, and turkey bacon (or 'tofu bacon' crumbles if you are vegetarian) and topping it at the last ten minutes with a bit of Parmesan. then for serving, balsamic vinaigrette. DELISH!
