This flavorful broccoli quiche is made with frozen chopped broccoli, Cheddar cheese, and mushrooms. Serve this quiche for lunch, brunch or dinner, with soup or a salad. Feel free to use a different cheese blend in this recipe.

Ingredients:

  • 1 9-inch pie shell
  • 1 (10 oz) package frozen chopped broccoli, about 1 1/2 cups
  • 8 ounces fresh mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons margarine, melted
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 to 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, divided, or a Cheddar blend

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Bake pie crust about 10 minutes or until bottom is slightly brown. Let cool. Cook broccoli until tender; drain well. Combine milk, eggs, margarine, flour, salt, pepper and 3/4 cup cheese; whisk until well blended. Sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup of cheese over crust. Layer broccoli and mushrooms on cheese. Pour milk and egg mixture over all. Bake at 375° for 35 to 45 minutes or until a knife inserted in center comes out clean.
4 to 6 servings.

Good, with edits, Member pamathy

This is a great starting place for a delicious quiche. Here are my edits: 1.) Saute (slightly less) broccoli and mushrooms with one small onion and two cloves of garlic 2.) Use a splash of olive oil instead of margarine 3.) Reduce milk and cheese by roughly 1/3 I am typically a stickler for recipe details, but when it comes to this one, improvisation is the key to success. Less fat and more flavor is the right answer. I usually double the recipe and make two: one to eat and one to save. It's even better the next day!
