Ingredients

  • 2 cups broccoli florets steamed until for tender, then chopped coarsely
  • 2 slices of bacon cooked & crumbled
  • 1-2 tsp olive oil or bacon grease
  • ½ sweet yellow onion finely diced
  • 1 pre-made pie crust unrolled
  • cup extra sharp white cheddar shredded
  • 5 eggs
  • cups milk
  • Sea salt and freshly cracked pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  • Steam the broccoli in a steamer over boiling water for a couple of minutes, or until fork tender.
  • While the broccoli is steaming, cook the bacon in a skillet over medium heat until crisp and cooked. Place on a paper towel to drain grease then cut into crumbles.
  • Remove all but 1-2 teaspoons of bacon grease from the skillet (or use olive oil) then add the onion. Cook, stirring often, for 4-5 minutes, or until softened and golden brown.
  • Coat a pie pan with cooking spray then carefully unroll the pre-made pie crust and place it in the pie pan. Crimp the edges.
  • Combine the eggs, milk, sea salt, and freshly cracked pepper, to taste, together in a bowl and whisk until very well combined.
  • Sprinkle most of the chopped steamed broccoli, onions, crumbled bacon, and extra sharp cheddar in the bottom of the pie.
  • Add the well whisked egg mixture.
  • Sprinkle the remaining broccoli, bacon, cheese, and caramelized onions on top.
  • Carefully place into the oven and bake for 40 minutes, or until the top is set and not wiggly and the eggs are cooked through. Don’t overcook!
  • Let the quiche cool for at least 15 minutes before slicing and serving. Enjoy.
