Make this delicious Broccoli Quiche recipe for brunch or a weeknight dinner. Refrigerated pie crust makes it easy to whip together.

Whether it’s brunch or a weeknight dinner, this yummy quiche is satisfying and easy to put together. We served it as one of the egg dishes for our recent grad party (“ Outdoor Party Tips: The Entrance and Furniture”) and it got rave reviews. Definitely add this Broccoli Quiche recipe to your menu.


Ingredients:


Pie Crust (I use a refrigerated variety for ease)


1/4 cup grated Parmesan Cheese


2 cups chopped fresh broccoli


1 cup shredded Swiss cheese


1/4 cup sliced green onions


3 eggs


2/3 cup chicken broth


1/2 heavy cream


1/2 tsp salt


1/4 tsp Tabasco/hot pepper sauce


Directions:


Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Line a quiche pan or 9/10″ pie plate with pie pastry. Prick bottom and corners of pastry with fork. Bake for 5 minutes. Remove from oven; sprinkle with 2 Tb Parmesan cheese. Continue with layers of broccoli, swiss, and green onions; repeat until all are used.


Whisk eggs in medium bowl. Add chicken broth, cream, salt and Tabasco; mix well. Pour over broccoli mixture. Sprinkle with remaining Parmesan cheese.


Bake 10 minutes at 450 degrees. Reduce heat to 325 degrees and bake another 20-25 minutes. Let stand 5-10 minutes before slicing.

This quiche is wonderful with a light green, vinagrette salad or some fresh fruit. In the Spring, Rhubarb Muffins are a wonderful compliment, too.


Hope you enjoy this delicious Broccoli Quiche recipe!
