Simple and Delicious Quiche


In a previous post, I showed pictures of my Sabbath preparation. I decided to turn Sunday's meal into a brunch consisting of homemade cinnamon rolls (leftover frozen dough from the one's I served at Nathan's office), broccoli quiche, salad, turkey bacon, and a type of pizza roll (needed to use up some leftover bread).

The quiche turned out wonderfully and the best part was that it used ingredients most of us already have on hand. I've been searching for a simple and quick recipe for quiche and this one was just right... easy and delicious, I just had to share.

Prep Time: 20 MinutesCook Time: 30 Minutes
Ready In: 50 MinutesYields: 6 servings


INGREDIENTS:
2 tablespoons butter
1 onion, minced
1 teaspoon minced garlic
2 cups chopped fresh broccoli (I used frozen)*
1 (9 inch) unbaked pie crust
1 1/2 cups shredded cheese
4 eggs, well beaten
1 1/2 cups milk
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon butter, melted
3 slices of chopped turkey bacon

DIRECTIONS:
1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

2.Over medium-low heat melt butter in a large saucepan. Add onions, garlic, bacon and broccoli. Cook slowly, stirring occasionally until the vegetables are soft. Press cheese into crust to form a moisture "barrier." Spoon vegetables into crust and sprinkle with a little extra cheese if desired.

3.Combine eggs and milk. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in melted butter. Pour egg mixture over vegetables and cheese.


4.Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes, or until center has set.

I wouldn't recommend frozen brocolli, or if you do choose to use it, make sure you thaw and press out moisture first. My quiche had to bake for around 60 minutes, probably because of the extra moisture from using frozen brocolli.
