Bacon, Broccoli and Cheddar Quiche

My friend Michelle gave me a great recipe for bacon and cheddar quiche and I adapted it - adding broccoli for color, taste and vitamins. It's a great combination, and easy to throw together, and equally delicious for breakfast, lunch or dinner. (Pictured above with green beans with pine nuts.)

Start by cooking the broccoli until it is tender crisp, about 3-4 minutes.

Meanwhile combine the eggs, milk, salt, pepper and thyme in a mixing bowl and whisk well.

Add the drained broccoli

then the cheddar and bacon,

and pour into the prepared pie crust.

Bake for 35-45 minutes or until the eggs are set. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

  4. What a gorgeous and delicious looking quiche. Broccoli is one of my favorite vegetables so I love how you added it into this dish.

  5. I love broccoli and bacon together! This quiche sounds so good, and it looks lovely too. I also like the thyme in it, which would add such a lovely depth of flavour. Thank you so much for sharing it with Let's Do Brunch Sara. Hope to 'see' you there again this week!
