Easy Broccoli Quiche

I don’t even want to think about it yet, but the holiday season is upon us – if the commercials on TV are to be believed, anyway :) Soon, we’ll be planning parties and RSVPing to things, and one of them is bound to be a potluck.

Here’s Ridiculously Easy but Very Impressive (aka REVI) recipe, one that is so easy your friends won’t believe it when you tell them how you made it after serving it to them at a potluck brunch.  It’s also vegetarian.

Easy Broccoli Quiche – serves 4 hungry people or makes 8-12 potluck brunch slices

From allrecipes.com

2 tablespoons butter

1 onion, minced

1 teaspoon minced garlic

2 cups chopped fresh broccoli – gotta be fresh, frozen makes it watery.

1 (9 inch) unbaked pie crust

1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella or cheddar cheese

4 eggs, well beaten

1 1/2 cups milk

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1 tablespoon butter, melted (optional)

Preheat oven to 350°F

Over medium-low heat melt butter in a large saucepan. Add onions, garlic and broccoli. Cook slowly, stirring occasionally until the vegetables are soft.

Meanwhile, press 1 cup of the shredded cheese into the pie crust to keep it from getting too soggy.

Spoon vegetables into crust.

Combine eggs and milk. Season with salt and pepper, and stir in melted butter, if using.

Pour egg mixture over vegetables and top with the other ½ cup of cheese.

Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes, or until center has set.
