  • Heat the oil in a medium skillet over medium heat, and saute garlic and onion until tender. Mix in the broccoli, and continue cooking 1 to 2 minutes. Season with red pepper flakes. Transfer to the pie crust.

  • In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, egg yolk, and heavy cream. Pour over the broccoli mixture in the pie crust. Season with salt and pepper. Top with Provolone.

  • Bake 35 minutes in the preheated oven, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

I made this for a Christmas morning brunch and it was fairly underwhelming. It's tough to put my finger on what made it so bland; I love garlic onions and chili powder but something was... off. Read More

I have made many quiche recipes over the years and this was absolutely the best!. I used Krusteaz pie crust mix for the crust and Trader Joe's mediteranean cheese mix. (Provolone Fontina Kasseri) The quiche took longer maybe because I used a pottery quiche dish not a pie pan. OOOOH so worth the wait. My family loves this and I will make it again as soon as I have some leftover steamed broccoli......thanks Read More

Very nice quiche. Great flavor. It was a little wet the first time I made it even though I drained the broccoli well so the next time I added just a bit of flour to the egg mixture and it was perfect! Read More

This was the first quiche I'd ever made. The results were so-so but I think it was my error. It certainly was yummy. The broccoli probably needed to be drained more - it made the quiche a bit runny. Next time I might try tossing the sauteed broccoli in Bisquick or flour to absorb any excess water before adding it to the quiche pan. Read More

I made this despite my husband's claims that he doesn't like quiche:) It was very good loved the provolone & garlic. Instead of crust I always use prepared stuffing mix. Make up according to directions & press into bottom of baking dish. It is a little different and is lower calories than regular pastry. Very tasty! Read More

This is a great and easy quiche! I've made it at least three times with different variations and it turns out nicely each time. I would suggest sprinkling a little flour over the veggies to absorb remaining moisture...and I have found that it really makes TWO quiches so I split the ingredients between two ready-made crusts. Green pepper and spinach work equally well as broccoli. YUMMMMMM! Read More

OH MY GOSH. soooooo good. i did a couple of things different - i didnt use actual garlic i used garlic powder. i also put about half a cup of cheese in the egg mixture as well as on top. then when i was sauteing the broccoli and onions i added salt and pepper as well as in the egg mixture. i will definitely make this again. it was amazing better than any quiche ive ever tasted.
