This quiche has great flavor and can be used for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. It tastes just as great the next day for leftovers! Use your favorite cheese!

  • Press the pie crust ito a 9-inch pie plate; set aside.

  • Place broccoli in a glass bowl. Cover bowl with plastic wrap. Cook broccoli in microwave in 1-minute intervals until evenly heated through, about 5 minutes total; set aside.

  • Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Saute onion and garlic in melted butter until slightly translucent, about 5 minutes.

  • Stir ham and broccoli into the onion mixture and transfer to the pie crust.

  • Beat Cheddar cheese, milk, eggs, and black pepper together in a bowl; pour over the ham mixture. Sprinkle paprika over the entire quiche.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a knife inserted into the center of the quiche comes out clean, 30 to 45 minutes.

Cook's Note:

You can substitute fresh broccoli (2 cups) instead of steamed. I have added this to the saucepan to cook with the onions and garlic until soft. I also used a mixture of Cheddar and provolone cheese. I would think mushrooms and red peppers might make this even better, but my family is picky.

Partner Tip

Reynolds® Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

For a true 9" pie this was too many ingredients. I cut the cheese and ham to 1 cup instead of 1 1/2 cups and then the eggs fit in the pie shell. As for the cheese I put a layer of cheese on the bottom of the pie shell then added some to the broccoli/ham mixture and sprinkled some on top. This worked! It also needs to rest for 10 minutes before serving to set up properly. My family loved it.

It has been in the oven for the past 1.5 hours and is still not finished cooking. I will never again make this quiche.

So good. I'm obsessed with broccoli and this was perfect -- I could eat it three meals a day. I cut back the ham and cheese to 1c. each per reviews and it seemed to be a good quantity to prevent overfilling. Added a sprinkle of nutmeg to the egg mix and stirred the paprika in instead of sprinkling on top. I put some of the cheese on the bottom some mixed in and some on top.

I added mushrooms and a sprinkle of nutmeg and I mixed the cheese into the egg/milk mixture since the chef forgot to add a step for the cheese. However it came out very well--thanks for this recipe. I made two pies and froze one for another time. My fear of homemade Quiche is conquered!

Our guests and Mr. LTH loved this! I'd have probably rated it "4" stars myself but I have to give it "5" based on their rave reviews. I chose to make a potato crust rather than use a pie crust and I assembled it all the night before (partaking the potato crust first) for an effortless breakfast the next day. I used a steam able bag of frozen broccoli which made assembling even easier. The directions don't say when to add the cheese; I'm assuming you should add it w/the broccoli/ham mixture as it didn't work so well added to the egg mixture. I had to bake mine a bit longer since it'd been refrigerated. THANKS for the recipe!

It is a good quiche. It was much more time consuming than my standard spinach quiches. If I make this one again I will definitely add more broccoli and less ham. Way too much ham for my taste.

great filling - i don't know people are zoo confused about when to add the cheese (its with the milk mixture at the end - not hard to mix at all) my problem was with the pie crust (it said unbaked - big problem) i hand made my pie crust (maybe it was much thicker than a normal store bought one) but after 45 minutes the inside was cooked perfectly and tasted great. but the pie crust at the bottom was not cooked. so i suggest cooking pie crust before putting in filling (especially if your making your own pie crust)

Excellent especially with my homemade piecrust. I used a combination of Swiss and sharp cheddar cheese and did not beat the cheese with the eggs & milk. Instead I put some cheese on the (PRECOOKED for 10 minutes @425 degrees) crust; mixed the rest in the broccoli/onions/garlic along with 1/2 tsp of paprika and then poured the mixture in the crust. I added a little more Swiss cheese on the top and sprinkled the remaining paprika over it. I baked in a 9" deep pie plate. Cooked about an hour and let stand about 10 minutes. Will definitely make again.

This was so easy and so delicious. I made it for a family brunch and got huge compliments on it. To boot I completely forgot to add the shredded cheese and it was still outstanding. I can only imagine what it tastes like with the cheese.
