Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups broccoli florets
  • 5 eggs
  • 2 cups whole milk*
  • 1 tsp. dijon mustard
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 cup cheese (I use cheddar or a gruyere/Swiss blend)
  • 1 1/2 cup ham cubes

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350° F (177° C).
  • Heat broccoli florets in a small sauté pan over medium heat and dry sauté without any oil for 5-10 minutes until cooked and starting to lightly brown.
  • While broccoli is cooking, crack eggs into a medium sized bowl. Add milk, mustard, salt, and pepper. Whisk with a wire whisk until bubbly and mixed thoroughly.
  • Spread broccoli, ham, and cheese out in a silicone 9" round baking dish or a buttered 9" pie tin (make sure it is buttered thickly to keep from sticking). If using a silicone baking dish, make sure to put it onto a metal sheet pan to allow it to be easily put into and pulled from the oven.
  • Pour egg mixture evenly into baking dish. Place pan in oven and cook for 35-40 minutes until quiche is cooked through, starting to lightly brown, but still jiggly in the center.
  • Remove quiche from oven and let cool for 15 minutes before cutting and serving. Keep leftovers for 3-4 days in the refrigerator, reheating using the microwave.

Notes

*Do NOT use low fat or nonfat milk.
To make recipe vegetarian, leave out the ham, increase the broccoli to 2 1/2 cups (or add a cup of another veggie), increase the salt to 1/2 tsp. and add an extra cup of cheese.
