Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  • 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.
