About the Recipe

Staple brunch crowd pleaser. There are a million ways to make quiche, but this one is a timeless classic and only requires a few ingredients.


  • 2 cups broccoli florets (frozen works fine here)

  • 5 large eggs

  • 3/4 cup milk, I used whole milk

  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

  • 1 pie dough (crust)


  1. Bring pie dough to room temperature and roll out

  2. Place 1-2 cups water in the bottom of a small pot. Add the broccoli, cover, and bring to a boil. Cook the broccoli until crisp-tender, about 4 minutes. Transfer broccoli to a colander, rinse with cool water, and drain. Chop broccoli into small pieces.

  3. In a large bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, salt and pepper. Stir in the chopped broccoli and cheddar cheese. Pour into the prepared pie dough .

  4. Bake quiche for 35-40 minutes, until eggs are set in the center. Check on quiche starting at 25 minutes and tent with foil if crust is browning too quickly.

  5. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
