Veggie Quiche

I grew up knowing this as Broccoli Quiche, but think there's enough veggies in this one to call it a veggie quiche.  I just love it because it's full of veggies, where many quiches are mostly egg.  I usually throw in some extra broccoli because that's just how I like it.

I also grew up with Bisquick in the original recipe.  I don't use the stuff, I think it's scary, at best, and prefer to use ingredients that I know how to say and know what is in them.  That's why I used an Olive Oil Crust recipe.  After eating some, I recommend only using half of the olive oil crust recipe, making for a thin crust layer, but this week I used the full crust (and just didn't eat all of the crust).


Veggie Quiche

10 oz (2-3 cups) frozen broccoli florets, thawed
1 bell pepper, diced
1/3 cup onion, chopped or diced
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
3 eggs
1 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp fresh cracked pepper
1 cup milk

Prepare your crust in a pie dish.  Evenly spread out your broccoli, bell pepper, onion, and cheese.  In a separate bowl, blend together remaining ingredients until eggs are well beaten.  (You can use a blender, whisk, beater...)  Pour liquid mixture over the veggies.  Bake at 375 for 40 minutes or until a knife comes out clean when inserted in the center.

I made this for myself to eat for lunches this week, but my 7 year old tasted it and decided that she'd also like some in her lunchbox.  That's my girl!


  1. Ooh - I like the idea of an olive-oil crust, I think I should put some of this into my bentos. ^^

  2. Yummy!! That looks delicious, its so colorful and full of veggies, and the little biscuit on top is so adorable! Will have to try this recipe for sure! Thanks
