Broccoli and Cheese Quiche is so good your kids won’t realize they’re eating something that’s good for them… this recipe is so easy to make…. with a bowl of soup it makes a perfect weeknight meal.
I used finely shredded sharp cheddar cheese… but other cheeses would go well also…. Monterey Jack or a blend of cheeses… it’s all good.
I used fresh broccoli but you can use frozen as well… just be sure to drain the broccoli well after cooking… you don’t want to make your quiche soupy.
Reheating quiche is a snap… you can heat it a slice at a time for a couple minutes in the micro… or cover with foil and heat in a low heat oven….
You will need to check on it frequently after about 20 minutes or so of baking. You don’t want the edges to get too browned… if they start to brown… lay foil over the edges.
