Broccoli Cheese Quiche (crustless)

This is a great recipe for brunch, lunch, or dinner.  And it goes great

with bacon or ham.  I have this recipe posted in appetizers too because it makes the best-tasting mini quiches.  But here I am using 3 (6½-inch) pie plates.  You could also use a 9 or 10-inch quiche dish or pie plate.  

This recipe doesn't require a crust.  It's perfect for a luncheon or shower.

About the Ingredients:

•  Broccoli-Only use the florets if possible.  If not, peel the stems before



   chopping to a ½-inch dice.

Cheese-Cheddar (mild, medium or sharp) is preferred, but you could also



   use Swiss or Gruyere.  I like to mix Swiss with a little parmesan.

•  Onion-¼ to ½-inch dice works best with this quiche.  Option: for more flavor,     



    sauté or carmelize the onion.              



•  Milk-Whole milk is the best for this dish.  

•  Eggs-large fresh eggs are perfect for this recipe.

•  Baking mix-use your favorite or try our recipe here.

I find it easier to mix the broccoli, onion and cheese before placing in the pie



plate or quiche dish.

Broccoli Cheese Quiche (crustless)

                                  Serves 6


•  1 crown of broccoli (medium); washed and dried; cut into ¾-inch pieces*

•  3 cups (12 ounces)cheddar cheese, shredded

•  ¾ cup onion, ½-inch dice

•  1-1/3 cups whole milk

•  3 eggs

•  ¾ cup baking mix (see our recipe here)

•  ½ tsp sea salt

•  ¼ tsp black pepper

Preheat oven to 400°F.

You will need a blender or food processor and 1 greased 9 or 10-inch

pie pan or quiche dish.  Here I used 3 (6½-inch) pie plates. (Source)


1.   In the prepared pan, alternate sprinkling the broccoli pieces, onions and             cheese, making sure they are evenly dispersed.    

2.  In the blender, combine the rest of the ingredients; blend on high for 20          

    seconds, scraping sides.  Do not overbeat; you will just be adding excess air.

3.  Carefully pour into the pie plate on top of the broccoli, onions, and cheese.

4.  Place in preheated oven and bake for 25 to 35 minutes until top is a                       medium golden brown.  Cool; if not serving with 30 minutes cover with                 plastic wrap and place in refrigerator.  Can be served warm or cold.

*You can also use 2 packages (10-oz each) of frozen broccoli florets.  Thaw

   under cold running water; drain thoroughly and wrap in a dish towel.  Get it       as dry as possible then cut into ¾-inch pieces.
