This is a great recipe and have made it many times since Martha first published it. Glad to see it here, because I'd forgotten it. One thing I do that makes it a bit more interesting: After buttering or spraying the dish, add a handful of panko or other breadcrumbs and shake them around to coat the dish. Makes it super easy to remove slices and adds a little bit of "bottom" texture to the finished quiche. Oh, also I add a half cup chopped onion to the broccoli to soften it and add another flavor layer to the quiche.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter four 8-ounce ramekins (or a 9-inch pie dish); set aside. Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Add broccoli; cook 1 minute. Drain well; transfer to a cutting board, and blot dry with paper towels. Chop coarsely.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together eggs, half-and-half, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, and nutmeg. Stir in broccoli and cheese.
  3. Place ramekins on a rimmed baking sheet. Ladle broccoli mixture into ramekins, dividing evenly. Bake until golden brown, 35 to 40 minutes. Serve with crusty bread and a mixed-green salad, if desired.
