There is something about a quiche that is so comforting and delicious. It is perfect for breakfast, but can also be eaten for lunch or a light dinner. Quiche are so easy to make and using premade pie crust helps cut the prep time in half.
I make this Bacon & Broccoli Quiche if I am hosting a brunch or for a simple weeknight family dinner and serve it with a side of thinly sliced apples. It is also the only way I can get my husband to eat broccoli!
Broccoli & Bacon Quiche
1 pre-made roll-out pie crust
8 slices cooked and crumbled bacon
1 c. frozen or fresh broccoli, cooked and chopped
1½ c. mozzarella or swiss cheese
6 lg. eggs
1 c. half and half
¾ tsp. salt
⅛ tsp. pepper
Heat oven to 425 degrees. Put uncooked pie crust into a pie pan and crimp the edges. Mix the bacon, cheese and broccoli together and place on top of the pie crust. In a separate bowl, beat eggs slightly with half and half, salt and pepper.
Pour egg mixture over pie. Bake 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 300 degrees and bake 30 minutes longer or until done.
