Broccoli Quiche

I work ten hour days during the week, but I don’t want that to get in the way of putting a good, satisfying dinner on the table.

If you’re looking for a quick week night meal, try whipping up a quiche. Store bought pie crust works just fine. Add a green salad and you have a complete meal.

Quiche is also great for brunch with a side of fresh fruit. This recipe is very versatile; substitute spinach or asparagus for the broccoli if you wish.

1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

  1. I made this for dinner last night, substituted asparagus for broccoli and it was wonderful!
    Thanks Brenda, I may try the broccoli next time. I think the secret here is the garlic. I’ve made lots of quiche, but never used garlic. Now I know!!!!!!
