Cheddar Broccoli Quiche

Yield: 9 servings

I can’t count the number of times we’ve made this cheddar broccoli quiche in our household for breakfast or lunch, sometimes brunch. And it’s just as tasty for dinner or a late night snack.. So, you really can’t go wrong. While it is delicious on it’s own, nothing beats a breakfast sandwich (am I right?) on a bagel, English muffin, or slapped between two slices of toast.

6 eggs
2 cups milk
2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
1 cup chopped broccoli
1/2 cup onion, diced small
1/2 cup flour
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper

I used Nellie’s Free Range Eggs in this recipe, and you can really see and taste the difference in the quality of these eggs compared to most. These all natural eggs add a noticeably light and airy texture to this decadent dish.

  1. I’d love to make this as breakfast for dinner. I would like to try using the eggs and cheese for breakfast burritos too.

    1. We’ve had this several times for dinner. It is filling in its own, but well sometimes make home fries or bacon/sausage as a side.

      I’m ashamed to say I’ve never had a breakfast burrito, but I keep hearing good things. I’ll have to try one soon!
