This is a very simple, but delicious brunch casserole - almost like a crustless quiche. We had this for our Lazy Day New Years brunch (our guests come in pajamas and stay that way all day - hence the name). It's very colourful and quick to throw together, especially if the cheese is grated and broccoli is chopped the day before. Don't chop the tomatoes ahead of time though as they tend to get soggy and lose flavour if refrigerated.
- 2 cups broccoli, chopped
- 3 medium tomatoes, chopped
- 1 1⁄3 cups monterey jack cheese, grated
- 1⁄2 cup cheddar cheese, grated
- 1 1⁄2 cups milk
- 1⁄3 cup flour
- 4 eggs
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Mix milk, flour and eggs well.
- Add the remaining ingredients and pour into 8 X 8 greased baking dish.
- Bake for 40-45 minutes.
- Let sit 10 minutes before serving.
Hubby says a solid 4 of 5; why not 5? Well, its quiche, and he's 63 and from the generation that real men don't eat quiche, hAha. We didn't add tomatoes (served them sliced as a side) but we added diced ham and a couple of shakes of hot sauce and black pepper to give it more kick. Quick, easy Friday pm dinner with those side tomatoes I mentioned plus biscuits, It was quite good!
YUM! Came out perfect! Put in some sautéed spinach and mushrooms with a little garlic, topped with Roma tomatoes...will make it again!
I made this on 9/09/08 for the "Breakfast Anytime Challenge" in the Cooking Photo Forum, and as part of mine and SO's dinner. Since it was just my SO and myself, I cut the broccoli down to 1 1/2 cups, and only used 3/4ths of a large tomato.The rest of the ingredients remained the same.The directions were so easy to follow, that even a new bride could make this and impress her mother-in-law.The taste was pretty good, we both thought that it could have used something like garlic powder, and ground black pepper to give it a bit more flavor. But other than that it was a very good dish. Thank you for posting and, "Keep Smiling :)"
