  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Press the pie crust ito a 9-inch pie plate; set aside.
  3. 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.
  4. Melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Saute onion and garlic in melted butter until slightly translucent, about 5 minutes.
  5. Stir ham and broccoli into the onion mixture and transfer to the pie crust.
  6. Beat Cheddar cheese, milk, eggs, and black pepper together in a bowl; pour over the ham mixture. Sprinkle paprika over the entire quiche.
  7. Bake in the preheated oven until a knife inserted into the center of the quiche comes out clean, 30 to 45 minutes.

Footnotes

  • 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.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

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...

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.

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 ...
