Easy as Pie Broccoli Cheddar Quiche

I did not make this quiche.  My husband, Sean, made this quiche.  He made it following instructions I gave him via text message.  If you ever want a testament to the fact that quiches can be incredibly easy to make, use the fact that my non-chef husband made a quiche via text instructions.  It’s nearly fool-proof, and you can substitute out the cheeses and vegetables based on what you have available.  Just keep the eggs and cream the same, and you’ve got a blank canvas to play with.  Yes, quiche purists might not appreciate this version as it’s missing some of the fussiness other quiches require, but when you’re looking for something to put together fast for a light supper or brunch, this quiche version is perfect!

1 prepared pie shell of your choice

1 c heavy cream

4 eggs

1 c finely chopped broccoli (chopped smaller than the picture demonstrates, otherwise it stays a little crunchy)

1 c shredded cheddar cheese

Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350.  Combine the cream, eggs, broccoli, cheese, salt and pepper.  Pour into the prepared crust.  Bake 35-45 minutes, or until the center is set and a knife inserted about 2″ from the edge comes out clean.

  1. this is so inspiring because I have never made a quiche but my daughter is a big fan of “flavored” eggs (meaning eggs that are jazzed up a bit). So I have been looking around at different quiche recipes and am looking to making one in this coming week. Broccoli and cheese are such a great combination anyways, I can only imagine this quiche is super delish!

    Thanks for sharing!
