Whether you’re having a weekend brunch with friends or planning for a large holiday gathering, this Broccoli Cheddar Quiche is an easy dish to put together to serve up to 12 guests. It tastes great fresh out of the oven, served cold or reheated. Plus, the use of frozen, store-bought crusts makes this a stress-free baking experience.
Serve this quiche alongside a simple Arugula Salad or some cut, fresh fruit for a complete meal. Don’t forget the mimosas or a fun coffee drink to really impress your friends and family.
- 12 eggs
- 1 cup half and half
- 3 cups freshly shredded cheddar cheese
- 1 head broccoli
- 1 medium onion
- 2 frozen pie crusts
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 3/4 teaspoon pepper
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Fine dice onion and chop the broccoli into very small pieces, discarding stem (or save to use later for broccoli cheddar soup).
Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add onion and sauté for 8 to 10 minutes, until onion is well cooked and translucent.
Crack eggs into a medium bowl and whisk together. Pour in cream and add salt and pepper, whisking until well combined.
Sprinkle 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese into the bottom of each frozen pie crust. Top with cooked onions and broccoli. Pour egg batter to fill each pie crust. Sprinkle each with 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese.
Bake on the middle rack for about 40 minutes, or until filling is set.
