Healthy Recipe | Broccoli Quiche


This has turned into one of our favorite meals at our house.  It's easy, inexpensive, and yummy.  And most days I have all the ingredients on hand.

I especially like this recipe because my one year old will not eat eggs.  I think he hates the texture.  But, he will chow down on some quiche!  I have a hard time being certain he is getting enough protein so this is really a big deal for me.  Do you have a hard time getting your little one to eat protein?

I initially created this recipe when some friends were coming into town so that I wouldn't have to stand at the stove and make breakfast in the morning while they were there.  I wanted to be able to enjoy their company.  This is a great breakfast, lunch, or dinner and it reheats really well.

Broccoli Quiche:

  • 1 cup broccoli 
  • 1 pie crust (I buy the frozen store brand)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 1/2 c mozzerella cheese
  • 1 c milk (I use whole)
  • 1 small onion
  1. Sautee cut up broccoli and onion in a pan until tender.
  2. Put broccoli in pie crust.
  3. Beat 4 eggs and milk together until blended.
  4. Pour cheese over broccoli.  Cover with eggs and milk.
  5. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
  6. Enjoy!
*I always line a baking sheet with tin foil and place the pie crust on that while baking.  It never fails that my egg mixture overruns the sides of the crust and makes a mess to clean up.

  1. I just made a quiche for the first time two days ago. Super simple to make. Whipped up a crust! Cracked some eggs! And I used the leftover veggies from my lasagna and fajita night (broccoli and 3 kinds of peppers with onions). It was awesome. Definitely adding it to my meal plans. I used to only make frittatas! Once I give my son eggs I'll be giving him it too!
