Broccoli, Tomato and Cheddar Quiche

Yum

brocolli tomato and cheddar quicheThis is a crust less quiche recipe.  It is meant to be simple.  There is a ton of saturated and trans fats in premade pie crusts so if you can make a great tasting quiche like this, why add it if you don’t have to?  Whenever you don’t have a crust to line the bottom of the pan you can be sticking will be an issue.  So just be sure to add a little oil or butter to your baking dish to prevent sticking.

This quiche has farm fresh, organic eggs mixed with cream and milk (or half and half), fresh broccoli, grape tomatoes, sweet red peppers and cheese.

The tomatoes are divine in this and go so well with broccoli and cheese.   The quiche wouldn’t be the same without them.  They had a burst of flavor as well as moisture.  The egg/cream ratio leaves this quiche so moist you can hear it as your fork presses down.

Quiches are also a very versatile dish so feel free to add veggies of your liking or omit ones in this recipe.  Make it your own.
