Simple Crustless Broccoli Quiche

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Chef Kate

This is so simple and basic and really quite delicious. It's sort of a cross between a quiche and a frittata; it can be made ahead and re-heated; it's good hot or at room temperature. And, it lends itself to all sorts of variations -- other vegetables, other cheeses, ham or bacon or crab.

Yummy! You saved me from boring scrambled eggs for breakfast, as I'm doing a no carb week. I used cheddar cheese (since I don't care for swiss too much) and frozen broccoli florets. This recipe worked perfectly and tastes great! I love the touch of garlic and nutmeg. Thank you!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Blanch the broccoli, saving the stems for soup (If you are using frozen broccoli, thaw it).
  3. Beat eggs and cream, then add the cheese and mix well.
  4. Stir in the broccoli, salt, garlic powder (Whole Foods has an excellent organic variety), and pepper.
  5. Pour into a nine inch quiche pan and bake for about 30 - 35 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center comes out clean.
